Full description

Henry Adams is delighted to present 251 Main Road, Southbourne. Since buying the home from us in 2016 the current owners have modernised the residence to provide superior "lifestyle" accommodation. The attention to detail is immediately noticeable as you enter the bright and spacious hallway via the entrance porch with attractive stone flooring and galleried staircase to the first floor. Another outstanding feature is the thirty foot kitchen dining room with granite worktops and a continuation of the stone floor. This room has views over the rear garden and space for an informal "snug" area. There is a large utility room adjacent to the kitchen. An innovative enhancement to the sitting room is the cleverly concealed projector and screen providing the option of a cinema room as required. There is a family room conveniently placed central to the downstairs accommodation and perfect for entertaining the young, growing or established family members separate from the other rooms as required. Finally downstairs there is a cloakroom. Upstairs the accommodation is on two floors with two double bedrooms on the second floor. On the first floor the main bedroom suite has an en suite shower room, there are three more double rooms and a family bathroom with bath and shower. Outside the rear garden is spacious and family friendly. The driveway to the front is ample for several cars and there is a single integral garage. EPC-C



251 Main Road is conveniently located in the heart of the village of Southbourne which offers schooling to the age of 16, a doctors surgery, dentist, chemist and church in addition to day-to-day shopping including a locally renowned farm shop. The pretty hamlet of Prinsted lies to the south with easy access to the foreshore on the northern reaches of Chichester Harbour with coastal walks towards Bosham in the east and Emsworth to the west popular with ramblers and birdwatchers alike. There are good road and bus links, and the station on the Portsmouth/Brighton line also connects to London Waterloo via Havant, and Gatwick and London Victoria via Chichester. The bustling harbourside town of Emsworth, a mile to the west, has two sailing clubs, pubs and restaurants.

Why live in Emsworth?

Many people move to Emsworth to enjoy the best of town, country and coastal life. It was once a fishing village that was known for boatbuilding, rope making and oyster farming. Many of these traditions are long gone, but Emsworth has retained much of its old-fashioned charm.

The many artists who live and work here throw open their studio doors to show their work at the annual Emsworth Art Trail while the Emsworth Horticultural Society holds an annual fair over the August Bank Holiday, which includes demonstrations of ancient crafts such as glass blowing, wood turning, falconry and beekeeping.

Emsworth has a great selection of good schools, including St. James Primary School, Emsworth Primary School, Warblington Secondary School and Bourne Community College. The town also has many independent shops, a butcher, fishmonger, florist, delicatessen and supermarkets and it’s no surprise that, in a recent survey, Emsworth received the highest shopper approval rating of all shopping centres in the borough. We’re also spoilt by the number of popular pubs, bars and restaurants here, such as 36 On The Quay, where you can enjoy fine dining with a waterside view, and Fat Olives that occupies a former fisherman’s cottage.

Of course, one of our major attractions is the water – it’s a paradise for sailors, with beautiful waterside properties lining the harbour and a choice of local sailing clubs. Hayling Island is equally popular, with its reputation as the spiritual home of windsurfing and miles of glorious seafront that overlook the Isle of Wight, the Solent and Selsey Bill.
