The house is approached over an in-and-out driveway that offers ample parking. The front porch opens to an impressive reception hall with oak flooring and high ceilings, setting a tone of elegance and light for the whole property. A large family room with a bay widow and attractively tiled fireplace sits to the front of the property. This leads through to the study, overlooking the front garden and with a second door into the sitting room. The spacious and well-proportioned sitting room is open on one side to the dining room and each of these rooms has glazed double doors leading into the delightful conservatory, which links along the rear of the house and into the kitchen with its adjoining breakfast room. Looking out to the rear garden, the practical and well-equipped kitchen has polished granite worktops, twin cookers and a double Belfast sink with an adjacent utility room. The first floor landing opens to the charming principal bedroom with a bay window, fitted storage and en-suite shower room. Four further good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the versatile accommodation.
The west facing rear garden is a true delight with a broad secluded patio accessed from the conservatory and kitchen and with a raised fish pond. The remainder is largely laid to lawn with mature shrubs and borders, a well-stocked vegetable garden, greenhouse and shed.
A double garage and workshop space with front and rear access completes this exceptional family home.
Viewing is strongly recommended.
Westbourne Avenue is a sought-after and leafy residential road of both large period properties and more modern houses, located to the north of the centre of the thriving harbourside town of Emsworth and close to the picturesque village of Westbourne, just south of the rural delights of Stansted Forest. Emsworth has excellent road and rail links giving access to the A27 and the A3(M) just a short distance and Emsworth station is on the London Victoria line and links to the London Waterloo (fast service) from Havant station. The historic city of Chichester lies to the east with its Festival Theatre and racing at Goodwood, whilst the foreshore of Chichester Harbour to the south provides opportunities for the sailor and birdwatcher alike with many sailing clubs and coastal walks.

From the roundabout in the centre of Emsworth proceed up North Street under the railway bridge and then take the first turning right into New Brighton Road. After a short distance, turn right into Westbourne Avenue and follow the road round to the left where the property will be found on the left hand side.
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.
