6 bedroom detached house for sale

Wootton Bridge


Property Description

Full description

Rosanna is situated in a wonderful creek-side location at the end of Barge Lane, benefitting from extensive frontage onto Wootton Creek itself with great views and mooring ability. The gardens extends to about 0.68 acres whilst the property also has the benefit of owning the Eastern half of the bed of Wootton Creek which itself extends to about 1.8 acres. The existing house was built in the 1980ís and operated as a sailing school. The boathouse and parts of two jetties remain but are in need of replacement. The house itself has also suffered from structural damage relating to ground movement, but continues to be occupied. We do however anticipate that mortgage lending will not be available on this property but it provides an excellent opportunity for a replacement waterside home to be built, subject to the necessary planning consents. The existing house extends to approximately 2,335 square feet.

The wide variety of local shops, restaurants, pubs and takeaways of Wootton Bridge are within walking distance whilst mainland ferry connections are nearby with the Fishbourne to Portsmouth car ferry being less than one mile from the property and high speed passenger ferry services from Ryde to Southsea and Portsmouth being within approximately three miles. There is a sailing club within a few minutes by boat at Fishbourne. Cowes is a 20 minute ride by RIB. The Solent provides world-renowned sailing and this is a rare chance to find a property with such extensive frontage and direct access to Wootton Creek from which sailing in The Solent in 10 minutes makes this property is a yachtsmanís dream.
