A delightful, 3 bedroom yachtman's cottage in the heart of Old Bosham, close to the harbour and just 350 yards from the Sailing Club.

This shiplapped, attached, yachtsman's cottage-style property is beautifully presented and has been considerably extended by the current owners. This delightful home offers stylish accommodation and is set in a highly desirable position close to the quay in popular Bosham. Light and airy, with an open-plan and flexible layout, the property would be ideal for those with a desire for coastal living and those with an interest in sailing and watersports.

On the ground floor, the sitting room, dining area and kitchen provide a comfortable heart to the home. This attractive living space has solid oak flooring, neutral décor and plenty of natural light from two sets of French doors opening onto the south-facing gardens. The kitchen is fitted with wooden storage units and granite worktops, plus integrated appliances. A utility room, study, boot room and inner hall space complete the accommodation on the ground level.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms. The master suite has the benefit of being accessed via a separate staircase and offers a walk-in closet and a shower room adjacent. A second staircase gives direct access to the two further bedrooms, which are served by a well-fitted bathroom.


To the front of the property there is a carport, which provides off-street parking for up to two vehicles. There is also a yard suitable for the storage of bikes, kayaks and other watersports equipment.

To the rear, a pretty south-facing garden, with an area of lawn, paved terracing and a further decked terrace, provide plenty of space for outside dining and relaxation. The garden is bordered by raised flowerbeds, containing a lovely variety of shrubs and perennials.


Reef Cottage is located at the heart of picturesque Old Bosham - a highly regarded sailing village which offers a beautiful quayside, idyllic harbour with lovely coastal walks and stunning period architecture. The village is home to one of the most famous Saxon churches in Sussex and also offers a convenience store, the Bosham Walk Arts & Crafts Centre, a primary school, public houses and cafes, as well as the popular sailing club.

Chichester, with its Festival Theatre and ancient cathedral, lies 5 miles to the east, and offers a broad range of shopping and leisure amenities, as well as galleries, a museum and restaurants. Leisure pursuits within the area, include horseracing at Goodwood, which also hosts events for motoring enthusiasts, as well as several golf courses. The beautiful beaches of West Wittering cater for bathing and wind/kite surfing.

Transport links are excellent with the local railservice at Bosham Halt connecting to Chichester and Portsmouth. The mainline rail services from Chichester serve Gatwick airport and London Victoria.


From the A27 Chichester by-pass, exit at the Tesco roundabout onto the A259 sign-posted to Fishbourne and Bosham. After two miles, turn left onto Walton Lane and continue for just over a mile, into Bosham. Follow the road around to the left, and then to the left again as it leads to the public car park. Turn left just past the bus stop, and you will find the property on the left-hand side.
