Hearing the word renovation may have many people looking at a home for the first time trying hard to spot the gaps.

But Anne-Marie Green, of Fine and Country in Emsworth, is confident that, with standards of workmanship so high, there are no gaps to spot in what has been achieved with Silver Birches at Warblington.

“I was amazed when I first saw the house and the list of what’s been done is so long and detailed it’s impossible to fit in the property particulars without turning the document into a small book,” explains Anne-Marie.

“The building was taken almost back to bare brick before an orangery was added to the rear, a bedroom put into the roof space – with the roof renewed in the process – and a utility and shower room incorporated into the ground floor with a side extension.

“The ground floor now offers up to three bedrooms as the next owners can ring the changes between sleeping and living space – the latter dominated by a fantastic open plan living area with a kitchen, dining space set below a lantern roof, and sitting area with a bay window facing directly to the south.

“There are also ever-popular bay windows in the two bedrooms at the front of the ground floor while the first floor bedroom has front and rear dormers.

“This fantastic home looks wonderfully discreet from the road.”

“Working from home is a real possibility, but with Warblington station a short walk along Southleigh Road commuting should be easy.

“Havant station is also within easy walking distance and access to the A27 is also straightforward.”
