A superb Hayling Island property from FINE & COUNTRY EMSWORTH
As inhabitants of an island nation, it’s common for most of us to like to go down to the sea.
The shoreside combination of fresh air and expansive views always appeals, and when there’s nothing to interrupt the view between your garden wall and the coast of Normandy it’s hard to know how any home could win your heart more quickly than a property new on the market on Hayling Island.
The property, on Seafront where it meets Alexandra Avenue, was bought by the current owners as a holiday home but following an expansive programme of modernisation it now makes a magnificent main home for a family.
‘There’s huge appeal for any family loving an open air lifestyle,’ says Anne-Marie Green, of Fine and Country estate agents in Emsworth.
‘The sea shore is literally across the road at the front the house.
‘To take advantage of the outlook, the wall has been lowered and topped with wrought-iron railings. On cooler days, the new sunroom on the southern end of the sitting room provides somewhere warm to watch the ships heading along the English Channel, an outlook that’s also enjoyed from the master and second bedrooms above.
‘The sitting room is huge and is matched by the size of the kitchen and dining area, which makes this a great home for entertaining. Certainly if you own it you’ll rediscover friends you haven’t heard from in years!
‘The master bedroom is en-suite and there’s a family bathroom with both a bath and double shower cubicle serving the other four first floor bedrooms.
‘On the ground floor there’s a study adjacent to a shower room that could double as a bedroom or changing suite after those days on the beach.
‘It’s a house that’s totally in tune with the lifestyle favoured by people moving to Hayling Island – in fact if you thrive on sun, sea, and sand it’s difficult to imagine anywhere better!
‘With its walled garden and double sets of gates it’s also a secure play space and there’s also storage either side of the double garage block for a boat or caravan – a boat’s the most likely choice because who would want to head elsewhere unless by sea?
‘Of course there are practical matters to consider and Hayling Island itself has most of the required everyday amenities and education establishments.
‘For recreation there’s plenty to choose from – sailing clubs, a nature reserve, award-winning surfing facilities and recreation grounds, and blue-flag beaches.’
