Constructed in 1882 from brick with a slate roof over, 55 Horndean is a majestic Victorian villa on the edge of the popular small Hampshire town of Emsworth. Crammed full of period features and the large proportions that one may expect from a property of this period, including double height skirting boards, wide planked mahogany floorboards, high ceilings sash windows to name but a few.
It all starts in the porch where stained glass windows either side give a wonderful hue and lead through to the front door and hall which also features attractive stained glass art. The hall has
period floor tiles which lead to all ground floor rooms, the first of which is sitting room with its high ceilings, notable dark marble fire surrounds,
windows with views over the garden and door
through to a garden room which in turn leads out
through double doors to a decked entertaining area and swimming pool and gardens beyond.
A morning room with a dual aspect is next and
this also has fine features including another marble
fire surround, this time in red with white veins. The
dining room doesn't disappoint with its glorious bay window, it also has a marble fire surround to its fire place - this time in white! Back to the hall and a short run of stairs lead down to a country kitchen with granite and maple worktops, space for dining, Chinese slate floor and an Aga with back up hob and oven. A utility room houses the pool filtering equipment and has a door leading to the side of the house and garden beyond.
A handsome staircase has mahogany spindles and hand rail and lead up to a split first floor with a double bedroom and bathroom, the rest of the
first floor has three further bedrooms, the master
of which has an ensuite bathroom. Up to the
second floor and there is a further bedroom and
a bathroom. An attic with scope to convert (subject to the usual consents) provides good storage space.
It is a short distance from the centre of the picturesque town of Emsworth with its excellent range of facilities including independent shops, bank, a medical centre and dentists, along with renowned restaurants. There are two local primary schools which are very highly regarded and the property is also well located for access to independent schools, namely Ditcham Park, Portsmouth Grammar, Bedales and Churchers.
The railway station provides access along the south coast, to London Victoria via Gatwick Airport and to London Waterloo via Havant.

Sporting activities in the area include: horseracing at Goodwood and Fontwell, polo at Cowdray Park near Midhurst, golf at nearby Rowlands Castle and Goodwood, sailing at
Chichester Harbour, off the coast and on the Solent. Much of the surrounding countryside is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is ideal for walking and riding. The many miles of bridle paths along the shoreline provide access to Thorney Island, Prinsted and on to Chidham and Bosham. The Hayling Billy Trail is a 8km off-road walking and cycle trail from Havant that provides some fantastic
views of Langstone Harbour. Staunton Country Park, just outside Havant, has 1,000 acres of landscaped grounds, a walled garden, tropical glasshouse and an ornamental farm. Also close by is Stansted Park where the historic house and grounds of 1,800 acres of ancient beech forest are now the setting for events such as the Garden Show, cricket matches, open air theatricals and the Stansted Proms.
