A delightful detached house set in large mature gardens bordering Wootton Creek.
Long Acre Originating from the 1930’s, the house provides light accommodation with good views of both Wootton Creek and the mature west facing rear garden and adjoining woodland.
The property benefits from having both a creekside garden and a secluded rear garden bordering woodland, making for a diverse and attractive setting. The large windows have been replaced with Everest double glazed units and the house retains an array of original features including extensive original oak joinery including internal doors and the staircase. The house would now benefit from some modernisation.
The creek provides mooring facilities and The Royal Victoria Yacht Club, with the Fishbourne car ferry terminal being nearby providing regular services to Portsmouth. Wootton Bridge has a good range of local shops, takeaways, a pub and creekside spa and restaurant all within walking distance. There are also good coastal walks that are accessible directly from the property.
