Full description

Henry Adams is delighted to present this superior family home situated in the select Wade Court area of Havant. Built in 1864 number 17 was one of the original homes built on this private road and the current owners have retained a lot of the period features. The impressive driveway gives first impressions of grandeur and this continues into the reception hallway once used as the sitting room. Retained period features such as high ceilings, original fireplaces, attractive cornicing and picture rails abound throughout the residence and there is even the original servants bell. On the ground floor there is a spacious sitting room with attractive bay window overlooking the charming rear garden. In addition there is an imposing dining room and a family room. The kitchen breakfast room is very large with an adjacent utility room and has the added feature of a hidden servants staircase to the first floor. Upstairs all the bedrooms are larger than double size and there is a double guest room with adjacent shower room and door into a potential children's bedroom. Another double bedroom has an ensuite shower and there is a spacious family bathroom. Outside the garden is well manicured with vehicular access on to both Elm Road and Wade Court Road. The former gives access to the double garage. and there is off road parking for multiple vehicles. Number 17 is a truly elegant home and an early viewing is highly recommended EPC-D



Number 17 Wade Court Road is situated in the sought-after and semi-rural Wade Court area to the south of the centre of Havant. Take a leisurely stroll from the property down a rural lane to the foreshore of Langstone past the historic Wade Tower and the original 'wading' crossing to Hayling Island which is now a conservation area. There are attractive coastal walks towards Langstone Mill, the renowned 'Royal Oak' pub and Hayling Island to the west, and the harbourside village of Emsworth to the east. Havant has good shopping including a Waitrose, a Tesco, a leisure centre and the mainline station connects Portsmouth and London Waterloo and also Southampton, Gatwick and London Victoria. The A27 nearby provides access to the Cathedral city of Chichester with its Festival Theatre and racing at Goodwood, and Portsmouth to the west with its historic dockyard and HMS Victory, the Mary Rose and the Warrior.

An opportunity to purchase a large and elegant family residence rich in history and period splendour.

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.
