A rare opportunity to purchase a unique and delightful cottage situated in the desirable village of Langstone. Mill Lane, so named after the historic and local Langstone Mill originally built in the 18th century is a distinguished address in the village. This flint fronted cottage was originally the Lodge to the main home next door and accommodated many of the serving staff. Two double bedrooms are complemented by the very spacious lounge/dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room. There is a family bathroom and a cloakroom. A real feature is the walled west facing rear garden which is absolutely charming, secluded and enclosed. There is driveway parking for several cars to the side of the home. This is a real opportunity and early viewing is recommended EPC-E
Mill Lane is one of the most desirable roads in Langstone, a delightful and picturesque hamlet in a conservation area, set on the upper reaches of Chichester Harbour with its historic mill and renowned Royal Oak pub, located on the mainland to the north of the bridge across to Hayling Island with superb coastal scenery popular with walkers and birdwatchers alike. Grit barges used to moor at the wharf and the wreck of one, called 'Langstone', can still be seen at low water. Nearby Havant has good local shopping, including a Waitrose and a leisure centre and a main line station on the Portsmouth/Waterloo line. There are excellent road links with the A27 to Southampton, and London, via the A3M, to the west, and Chichester to the east with its Festival Theatre and racing at Goodwood.

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.
