Tenure: Freehold

A stunning contemporary waterside house with far reaching views over the upper reaches of Emsworth channel within convenient distance of Emsworth town centre and its two sailing clubs.

This imaginatively designed family house is situated in a private road adjacent to the upper reaches of Emsworth channel, with impressive views over the harbour. Water views may be enjoyed from many of the principal rooms with large open plan areas for contemporary family living which allow plenty of natural light into the interior. In particular the 35' long kitchen/family room and adjacent dining room use bi-folding doors to open up the garden side of the house, allowing these rooms to communicate seamlessly with the adjacent travertine terracing and garden. The sitting room is over 21' in length and has a south facing window bay with double doors opening onto a terrace with views to Emsworth Channel. The generous bedroom accommodation provides up to 5 bedrooms if required, including an impressive principal suite with own entrance lobby and vaulted bedroom with travertine marble floor and balcony providing far reaching views over Emsworth channel. There is also a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room, well-appointed shower room and nursery bedroom/dressing room. A guest suite on the other side of the house also has travertine marble flooring and well-appointed shower room. There are two further family bedrooms, one of which also has water views, and a family bathroom.

The house is equipped with some of the latest energy saving technology, including an air source heat pump providing hot water and underfloor heating throughout the house. The system is entirely programmable and can also be controlled remotely from the owners' ipad. In addition to this a rainwater harvesting system ensures that the property makes efficient use of its water supply. The garden has been specifically designed for summer entertaining with external lighting and sound systems. The travertine marble flooring of the kitchen/family area leads directly through to the travertine terracing of the garden, with its' main gas fired barbecue and adjacent swimming pool. For those wishing to exercise there is a power jet to swim against, and an external shower for pool users. From the pool area, steps lead up to a decked sitting area sheltered by a lovely old oak tree and this has bench seating with glazed screens and raised planters. An ideal opportunity to acquire a very special waterside property equally suited for use as either a full time family home or weekend sailing retreat.

This pretty harbourside town on the boundary of Hampshire and Sussex is extremely popular and it is not hard to see why. It has retained a good collection of local shops, pretty pubs and noteworthy restaurants, including the Michelin starred 36 on the Quay and the recommended Fat Olives. Emsworth Sailing Club is also a short walk along Wayfarers Way, and the town still retains a small fishing fleet with two boatyards specialising in classic local craft. Despite its idyllic setting, Emsworth is extremely accessible with good road and rail links to London (especially since the opening of the Hindhead Tunnel), Havant Station providing a mainline service to Waterloo in 1 hour 25 minutes. The city of Portsmouth is only 10 miles away. The cathedral city of Chichester lies 9 miles to the east, home to the internationally famous Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery which houses one of the country's most important modern art collections outside London. The surrounding countryside provides a wide choice of recreational facilities, including Goodwood with its famous racecourse, private health club and airfield. Its Annual Festival of Speed and the Revival of the historic motor circuit have also become prominent annual events on the social calendar. Chichester Harbour and the waters of the Solent are some of the most popular and easily accessible sailing facilities from London, and the beaches of West Wittering, East Head and Sandy Point draw many visitors each year with facilities for windsurfing, kite surfing and landboarding. The newly created South Downs National Park provides many miles of beautiful footpaths and bridlepaths and is a perfect setting for its picturesque hamlets, excellent pubs and restaurants.
