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.
Offering Enormous Potential
This delightful period home is situated in a popular residential area, just to the north of the pretty harbour side village of Emsworth, with a good variety of shops and two sailing clubs. Situated at the top of Chichester Harbour, Emsworth provides an attractive foreshore for walks towards Langstone in the west and Thorney Island in the east. There is a railway station in Emsworth with services to London Waterloo via Havant; by road there is good access to the A27 and A3M linking Portsmouth, Chichester and London beyond.
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.
