Starfish is a spectacular property, with many architectural features characteristic of New England style. It has a unique charm encompassing broad dormers, steep roof pitches and attractive casement windows. Blending beautifully into its marine environment, the house has contemporary features and quality finishes and presents as an outstanding coastal property.

Entering the house the attractive and spacious reception hall has generous light from windows of the first floor landings. Glazed internal doors open to the Harvey Jones hand built kitchen/dining room with wooden floors and two sets of double French doors opening to a south facing decked terrace running the full length of the property and overlooking the meadow garden.

A further set of glazed internal doors open into the adjacent drawing room with wooden floors, feature fireplace, double French doors to the terrace and uninterrupted south and west aspect across the meadow to the creek-side jetty and to the harbour beyond.

The Family/TV room is another stunning room with semi-vaulted ceiling with sky-lights, fitted bookshelves and bio fuel fireplace. Double French doors on two sides of the room open on the south to the meadow and on the north to the extensive front garden laid to lawn. The ground floor also provides a utility/boot room, under stair storage and a guest cloakroom with shower.

There are four generous sized en-suite bedrooms. The attractive master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and well-fitted bath and shower room has double aspect windows giving views over meadow to the creek and spectacular far-reaching views to the harbour.

Two further double guest bedrooms on the first floor (one accessed by its own staircase allowing visitors to have their own space) have south facing aspects over the meadow and a fourth bedroom above features attractive eaves and west facing dormer window.


Starfish is set back from Smugglers Lane in attractive grounds and accessed by a tree-lined gravel driveway leading to the house, a double garage and the well set up boathouse. There is ample parking for four cars. The wellmaintained garden and grounds, approaching one acre, have direct access to the water’s edge. There is a right of way across the neighbouring properties to the shared jetty where the current owner rents a berth.

Note: The first part of the driveway to access Starfish is the subject of a right of way.


Starfish is positioned in a wonderful harbourside location 2.5 miles from Bosham village centre. Smugglers Lane has a quiet rural atmosphere with farmland to the north and views of the South Downs. Sailing is on the doorstep along with walking, cycling and wildlife for nature lovers.

The picturesque village of Bosham has a Saxon church, a well known sailing club, a country house hotel, and a waterside pub and café. There is also a medical centre, a convenience store and a post office.
