PROPERTY SUMMARY A perfect Edwardian family home, on the northern outskirts of the charming harbour town of Emsworth. The original part of the house has spacious and individual rooms with plenty of character and style, as is indicative of its period, such as moulded skirting boards, picture rails, dado rails, paneled doors, feature cast-iron fireplaces and original in-built display cabinets, to name but a few of the many features. The room sizes are generous and allow, even large families, their own spaces for work or recreation if desired, whilst the more recent addition of a very attractive and spacious family sitting/dining/kitchen area, with Limestone floor and underfloor heating, accommodates the modern lifestyle of large spaces ideal for gatherings with family and friends alike. The first floor has four bedrooms which are all of good proportions, with one providing an ensuite shower room, in addition to the family bathroom. The second floor is given over entirely to the master bedroom suite, offering a degree of peace and privacy, when desired. The accommodation of approximately 2,620 sq ft in total incorporates; five reception rooms, five bedrooms, three bathrooms (two of which are ensuite), a utility room and cloakroom.
It's a perfect home for families of all ages, with a large rear garden providing a good sized lawn for youngsters to run around and a spacious and well-designed slate stone terrace for al-fresco dining. There is also ground level lighting on the terrace making this an ideal space for adults to enjoy well into the summer evenings. Older children are likely to take advantage of the recreation ground and tennis courts which are, conveniently, just across the road. The centre of the charming harbourside town of Emsworth is within a short walk and has an array of locally owned shops, restaurants and pubs in addition to two sailing clubs. The railway station is only a few minutes away, making commuting just about as easy as it could be. The Cathedral city of Chichester, with its well supported Theatre,is located nearby along the A27.
