Full description

On the market for the first time in over fifty years, this delightful period property offers a remarkable amount of family accommodation. Now requiring updating, it offers an opportunity to create a superb family home with real character and charm, as this imposing Victorian villa has retained many of its period features. On the ground floor there is a generous hallway and large sitting room, both with original parquet flooring and high ceilings, complete with decorative cornicing and ceiling roses.There is an equally impressive dining room, separate breakfast room, cloakroom, kitchen, boiler room and pantry. An elegant staircase leads to the first floor, where there are five bedrooms and the family bathroom. Outside, the attractive front gardens benefit from driveway parking and a detached single garage, whilst to the rear of the property there is a fully enclosed and generously proportioned, mature west facing garden, with a brick-built store. With further scope to extend and improve, an early viewing of this exquisite home is a must to fully appreciate the enormous potential on offer.

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.
