In this instance, High Tide is a family home on Hayling Island where the current owners have undertaken a programme of improvements to enhance the living space and make the whole property more family-friendly.
They have also considered the aesthetics, so the practical addition of a front porch is graced by the balcony serving the master bedroom and providing views towards Chichester Harbour.
At the bottom of the garden is a detached studio, the perfect place for indulging hobbies that need a bit of peace and quiet – or vice-versa giving a space for a noisy hobby yet affording peace and quiet to everyone else!
‘High Tide is a great example of how imaginative thinking can add so much to a house,’ says Anne-Marie Green of Fine and Country Southern Hampshire’s Emsworth office.
‘Immediately you see the house in Yew Tree Road the white rendered walls and red roof tiles remind you of holidays in sunnier climes although, of course, living on Hayling Island is like being in a permanent holiday destination. Everyone loves the idea of island life but this comes with a bit more to offer than the average as Hayling is well-blessed with facilities for the physical being as well as contentment for the inner soul.
‘At the front, the property has twin reception rooms leading back to a kitchen with great work space that’s augmented by a utility.
‘At the rear, the owners have added a large conservatory with twin pairs of French windows into the rear garden.
‘The first floor has four double bedrooms and a cloakroom that complements the main family bathroom.
‘High Tide has the perfect combination of features for a great family life but one of the most revealing features is the highly competitive guide price.’
Guide price is £465,000 (EPC Band D). For more information, contact Fine and Country Southern Hampshire on 01243 487969 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
