An immaculately presented coastal home, providing extensive accommodation in a quiet and sought after position with excellent sea views
Seagarden is located in an idyllic setting adjacent to Fishbourne Green and just steps from the beach. This beautifully presented home offers light and spacious accommodation and retains many period features including open fireplaces, flagstone floors, a fine oak staircase and panelling. The house was at one time lived in by Meg White, one of the family of the famous ship builders J. Samuel White who came to prominence in the Victorian era and it is believed some of the oak panelling and joinery, particularly in the entrance hall would have been undertaken by their craftsmen.
The accommodation includes some particularly spacious principal rooms, many with superb sea views. On the ground floor, there is a large entrance hall with oak staircase and galleried landing, a large open plan kitchen/dining room with french doors which lead to the garden, a utility room and walk-in pantry, formal dining room with large bay window overlooking the green, study and a fine, light and spacious panelled drawing room. There are three double bedrooms all "en-suite". Two of the bedrooms offer panoramic views of Fishbourne Creek, The Solent and mainland beyond. The fabulous spacious Master bedroom suite offers a sitting area, dressing room and bathroom with double shower, double vanity unit with granite top and free standing bath.
The delightful gardens offer a range of outdoor seating and dining areas, including an extensive decked terrace which takes advantage of the sea views and is a perfect spot to enjoy an alfresco lunch or supper with friends and family.
A timber clad garden building offers spacious accommodation and is currently used as a home office.
The property is situated within walking distance of the Royal Victoria Yacht Club with its mooring facilities, where the current owners keep their boat and rent a pontoon berth which has direct access to the Solent at all but the lower tides. The historic Quarr Abbey, as well as a good local Pub and the car ferry terminal which provides convenient access to the mainland are all nearby. Wootton Bridge, (approx. 1.25 miles) provides a variety of local shops and facilities, whilst Ryde is situated approximately 3 miles away and offers a large range of shops and restaurants, a well-respected private school, award winning sandy beaches and passenger ferry services to Portsmouth with direct, fast rail link to London.
