A stunning Grade II listed, 5 bedroom Georgian townhouse located just yards from the harbour in the best street in Emsworth

14 King Street is an outstanding family home that offers over 2,600 sq. ft of impeccable, flexible living space, arranged over three floors and is flanked by homes equally steeped in local history. The home is sensitively modernised yet retains all the charm, character and period features of this classic era.

The ground floor accommodation flows from a wide reception hall and inner lobby with storage space and comprises a wonderful garden room with semi-vaulted ceiling, fireplace, inbuilt storage and French doors to the beautifully landscaped garden. There is also a striking panelled formal drawing room with a fireplace and views over the front courtyard. In addition there is a sitting room of similar dimensions to the drawing room. The kitchen/breakfast room is filled with light with doors onto the garden and the large inner courtyard. There is also a vaulted beamed ceiling and it is fitted with a classic range of quality kitchen units with an extensive range of integrated appliances, underfloor heating, flagstone flooring and provides generous space for a dining table. The accommodation is completed by a well fitted utility room and a large wet room doubles as the cloakroom.

On the first floor there are three impressive bedrooms, two with harbour views - all with inbuilt storage - and there is a family bathroom. The property’s remaining two bedrooms are located on the second floor, one with superb views of the harbour together with a dressing room which works perfectly as a playroom or potential bedroom, if required. There is also another spacious bathroom.

Please Note: Although there are bedroom views to the harbour, the photos in this brochure were not taken from the house.

Outside

Haven House is set back from probably the best street in Emsworth, with lovely old stone wall and gated entrance leading into a charming paved courtyard garden complimented by a classic Georgian doorway with a latticework porch. The main entrance is situated in the private courtyard providing ample parking and giving access to the garage which has mains power and lighting, together with a storeroom to one side. There is gated access from the courtyard into the stunning landscaped walled garden that has been planted to bloom in every season with climbing roses, a magnificent magnolia tree and ancient wisteria. The garden is idyllic with a generous paved flagstone terrace for al fresco dining and a large lawn bordered by a brick pathway. An outside power socket and watering systems along with security lighting, a home alarm and window locks are in situ to facilitate home and garden maintenance.

Situation

Emsworth is a highly sought-after location serving as the only market town on a harbour between Brighton and Portsmouth. The harbour is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Haven House is situated in a quiet location yet also within moments of every conceivable amenity of daily life. Local butchers, greengrocer, deli, supermarkets, pubs, coffee shops and numerous restaurants are located just along the street. For sailors, the Emsworth Slipper Sailing Club is only metres away and Emsworth Sailing Club is located just beyond the mill pond. All this is accessible without the need for a car. Emsworth is a magical place to sail from and allows easy access to the harbour and the Solent for those wanting day sailing and trips to historic spots including Cowes and the Beaulieu River. Sailing from the many villages around Chichester Harbour can also be enjoyed, bathing from the beaches on the South Coast and walking and riding on the rolling hills of The South Downs National Park. The Cathedral City of Chichester offers a broad range of cultural, leisure and shopping amenities including the renowned Festival Theatre, galleries, museums and restaurants. Goodwood, just to the north, offers a horseracing calendar and annual events for motoring and flying enthusiasts. Emsworth station is 0.6 mile away and therefore within walking distance and provides services to London (Victoria) and Gatwick or alternatively Havant, to the west, offers a faster service to London (Waterloo).

Directions

From Fishbourne roundabout to the southwest of Chichester, take the A27 westwards. After about 7.8 miles, take the slip road left to A259 and Emsworth. After 0.2 miles, take the 1st turn off the roundabout onto A259 (Havant Road). Continue for 1.2 miles into Emsworth and take the 3rd turn off the roundabout onto the High Street.
