Property Description:

An opportunity to acquire an historic and unique family home, with delightful walled gardens of around ¾ of an acre, situated in a highly sought after rural location on the fringe of Emsworth village. Mill cottage was originally built in 1769 as the coach house to Lumley Mill, together with the gardener's cottage and is believed to have been converted into a single residence in the early part of the 20th century. Grade 2 listed and surrounded by high walls originally built by French prisoners from the Napoleonic Wars, Mill Cottage has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment by the current owner, whilst still retaining many period features and its unique character. The cottage offers exceptional family accommodation, which briefly comprises five bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms, a utility room and a fabulous Smallbone Kitchen with Silestone worktops and Siemens integrated appliances. A particular feature is the exquisite mature garden, offering unsurpassed privacy, which has pedestrian and vehicular gates onto Lumley Road. Within the superb walled gardens are extensive outbuildings, lawns, a vegetable garden, a newly constructed oak framed double garage and a refurbished heated outdoor swimming pool. There is also current planning consent in place for the addition of a pool house. EPC-NA

Lumley Road is a semi-rural lane running alongside Peter Pond, a natural wildlife habitat and conservation area, within walking distance of the thriving village of Emsworth, with day to day shopping, easy access to the foreshore and train station. At its northern end it becomes Mill Lane and bridges the countryside between Emsworth and Westbourne. Mill Lane contains just a handful of historic period homes and enjoys a rural feel, yet it remains convenient for both Emsworth village centre and good local transport links. The Cathedral City of Chichester lies approximately 6 miles to the east with the renowned Festival Theatre and comprehensive shopping facilities. The junction with the A27 motorway is approximately one and a half miles to the west, providing access to Portsmouth and Southampton in the west and the aforementioned Chichester and Brighton to the east. London is access via the A3m intersection at Bedhampton. Havant which lies approximately 4 miles away provides a mainline railway station to London Waterloo (77 minute fast service).
