Full description

Refurbished to a high standard with character, charm and only one previous owner, Lark Rise offers modern living with an elegant touch.

The house is approached by a sweeping driveway with parking for several cars. Entering through the original front door one has an immediate feel of space and light and is then drawn to the views up an down the Solent. A spacious reception hall leads immediately to the family kitchen and day room, and through bi-fold doors to the patio. The practical and well-equipped kitchen is the heart of the property, being imaginatively designed for family life and entertaining and equipped to a very high standard. A small, private study and a cloakroom complete the versatile ground floor.

The spacious, well-proportioned sitting room retains the original 1950’s fireplace as a distinctive focal feature and has bi-fold doors to the substantial raised patio area and the south-facing garden.

From the long, light and airy landing, three of the four bedrooms enjoy commanding coastal views and two have ensuite facilities and generous in-built wardrobe space. A stylish modern family bathroom rounds off the accommodation.

The drive at the front of the property affords ample space for cars and boats etc, and leads to the attached garage. The extensive grounds at the rear of the house are approached over the broad brick-paved patio, a superb entertaining or play area.

There is no forward chain and an early viewing is strongly recommended. EPC-D

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.
