A Grade ll Listed cottage with beautifully refurbished interior in the pretty waterside village of Prinsted
Situated at the heart of the village and just half a mile from the shoreline, 1 The Square is an attractive character home which has been extensively updated and extended by the current owners. This home now provides fabulous living spaces with a contemporary feel, whilst also retaining many wonderful period features.
An expanse of bi-fold doors give access from the stunning kitchen directly onto a large decked area creating an interior that blends seemlessly with the outside. Both the reception hall and the sitting room have beautiful inglenook fireplaces and a wealth of beams.
Stairs lead up from the reception hall to the first floor where there are three bedrooms (2 ensuite and one with a walk-in wardrobe). Also on this floor are a study and a bathroom.
In addition to the decked area, which provides ample space for outside dining, entertaining and relaxation, there is a further garden which is laid to lawn, with mature shrubs and trees. Car parking and garaging is available on the separate plot just opposite the property.
Prinsted can claim to be one of West Sussex's best-kept secrets, a little-known village nestled on the shore of Chichester Harbour. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a water lover's paradise, with beautiful walks along the shore, a lively dinghy-sailing and watersports scene and two marinas close by.
Prinsted is well connected with the A259 close by giving easy access to Chichester and to Havant, where the fast train service into London Waterloo takes just over an hour.
A mere half mile away is Southbourne with its church, library, post office, farm shop, chemist, doctors surgery, schools and supermarket.
Also within easy reach is the bustling harbourside market town of Emsworth with excellent facilities and a range of interesting and individual shops together with a medical centre and dental surgery. It is well known for its variety of restaurants, pubs and cafes.
The Cathedral City of Chichester has a range of cultural, leisure and shopping facilities including the renowned Festival Theatre, Pallant House Gallery, ancient cathedral, museums and a wide range of restaurants.
The Goodwood Estate hosts events for horseracing and motor-racing enthusiasts, as well as offering a hotel with healthclub and the Goodwood Aerodrome with tuition and flying experiences.
Local primary schools are very highly regarded and the property is also well located for access to independent schools, including Westbourne House, Portsmouth Grammar, Bedales and Churchers.
From the Fishbourne (Tesco) roundabout on the A27 to the south-west of Chichester, take the A259 Fishbourne Road West signposted to Bosham. Continue for 2.3 miles then take the second exit on the roundabout at Bosham continuing towards Chidham and Emsworth.
After about 2.7 miles on entering Southbourne continue over the mini-roundabout. After a short distabnce, turn left onto Prinsted Lane and follow the road for a quarter of a miles where the property will be found on the right-hand corner.
