Internally the property has huge character, with extensive oak beams throughout and with open fireplaces and some flagstone floors. It is believed to date from around the time of the Stuart Restoration, in the reign of King Charles II, and was originally a fishermans and smugglers pub. Later it became a sweet shop and finally home to a successful estate agency.
Outside there is a delightful courtyard garden and an outbuilding (somewhat dilapidated) which leads to a delightful and secluded southerly facing garden.
Following the owners retirement the property is now for sale and would make an ideal weekend or full time home subject to change of use.
South Street is a bustling harbour-side street, which runs down to the harbour edge and foreshore. This pretty harbour-side town on the boundary of Hampshire and Sussex is extremely popular and it is not hard to see why. It has retained a good collection of local shops, pretty pubs and noteworthy restaurants including 36 On The Quay and Fat Olives. Emsworth Slipper Sailing club is at the end of the road, and the town still retains a small fishing fleet. Despite its idyllic setting Emsworth is extremely accessible with good rail and road links to London, Havant Station providing a mainline service to Waterloo in 1 hours 25 minutes. Gunwharf Quays and the old city of Portsmouth are only 10 miles away and the cathedral city of Chichester lies 9 miles to the east. Sailing is the predominant past time on Chichester Harbour whilst the countryside to the north has been designated as The South Downs National Park.
