Full description

A unique opportunity to purchase an individual architect designed home with its own turret. This superior family home is situated in the desirable and leafy Denvilles area of Havant. The architect and subsequent owners have managed to retain many of the period features from the original 1920s home and blended these with more contemporary features. Furthermore, the current owner has additional plans to develop the residence which are available to view. They have already converted the original garage to more reception space and built an imposing twin garage on the driveway whilst retaining plent of space to park vehicles. The impressive entrance hallway features underfloor heating and is overlooked by a splendid galleried landing. It features attractive wood panelling we believe from the 1920s. The sitting room takes advantage of the turret and features a charming round window seat. There is a separate dining room and a spacious kitchen with adjacent utility room. The old garage has been converted into a room for work from home or a bedroom 6. Upstairs there is a stunning main bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite facilities. Three more double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. Outside, the grounds are impressive and feature a secluded and enclosed south facing garden. There is a large gazebo for outside entertaining and the twin garage and spacious driveway complete the generous accommodation on offer. EPC-C

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.
