Located on the shoreline of Chichester and Langstone Harbours, a short walk from Emsworth, this two bedroom Deckhouse is a novel yet practical design dating from the 1960's. It is part of a unique development of deckhouses that were originally built as yachtsmen's weekend and holiday houses.

The deckhouses are set in a tranquil parkland setting that contains two natural ponds. The Sussex Border Path passes beside as it follows the contours of Chichester Harbour and Thorney Island.

The accommodation is light and airy with floor to ceiling windows in the living room and master bedroom, which both open onto a south west facing balcony with glimpses of Chichester Harbour.

The master bedroom has a double bed, the second bedroom has bunk beds with a further 'trundle' bed being which pulls out from under the bottom bunk. Both bedrooms share a bathroom with electric shower above the bath. The living room has a comfortable sofa bed.

About this location

The Hampshire region

Emsworth

Emsworth is on the West Sussex and Hampshire border, and is midway between the cathedral city of Chichester and historic Portsmouth with its naval dockyard home to HMS Victory. It is a popular town with sailors, walkers and naturalists.The town has a long history with oyster fishing and boat building and still boasts traditional shipwrights and chandeliers. The attractive streets are lined with a range of architectural styles and a walk around the town gives a real feel for its history along with offering superb harbour views.The Sussex border path affords a beautiful outlook across the Chichester Harbour area. To the west Chichester Harbour merges with Langstone Harbour and the walk around the coastline towards the pretty village of Langstone is particularly picturesque. Heading south from the property, Thorney Island projects out into this natural harbour and taking the coastal path around the island will afford some wonderful views.
