Bath Road.

This iconic waterside property commands outstanding views of Emsworth Harbour and has been beautifully restored, modernised and extended, providing a rare opportunity to live in this exceptional location.

Dating back to the early 1800s, Teneriffe Cottage is all about the water.

The property almost hangs over the Mill Pond in Emsworth, and enjoys unprecedented views across the harbour. Originally two cottages, the property was knocked into one in the early 1960s.

The current owners have redesigned and extended what is something of a landmark property in this pretty coastal village.

Internally, the waterside theme continues, with a subtle palette of predominantly blues, taupes and creams that complement the natural hues of the nearby harbour.

The use of oak floors, tastefully painted tongue and groove panelling and a stunning range of “plantation” shutters by the New England Shutter Company, has given a stylish New England flavour to the property, and emphasises the sense of having escaped to the sea, quality is evident throughout.

The Shaker style kitchen, with its bespoke cabinetry topped with black granite worktops and wonderful views over the mill pond, really forms the heart of the house.

The breakfast area is open plan with a sizeable peninsula unit and a heavily beamed vaulted ceiling above. French doors lead out onto the terrace and gardens.

The adjacent double aspect drawing room, with lovely open fireplace, also has French doors out onto a significant deck with south and east aspects, where one can while away the day watching the harbour activities.

The upstairs perfectly balances the ground floor, the outstanding feature being the superb vaulted master bedroom with four gabled dormers and exceptional views.

Approached by gated entrance, the established gardens with east, south and west aspects, provide the perfect setting, with views of the sea in almost every direction.

Whilst there are a choice of suntraps bordering the rear of the house, the expansive deck, which links the interior accommodation with the outside, has a vaulted veranda giving wonderful shade, ideal for dining.

The property occupies a stunning location overlooking the mill pond, with panoramic views of the harbour.

Lying within easy reach of all the amenities provided by this lovely coastal town of Emsworth, including shops, Doctor’s Surgery, primary school, vets, public houses and restaurants and sailing clubs.
