    About this property

    • Shore House and Cottage occupy one of the best locations along Shore Road with stunning views across the harbour to Bosham village and down the main Bosham channel towards the harbour entrance. Shore Cottage was built in 1923 and Shore House was converted and modernised in 2011 on the site of an older property.

      The house extends to approximately 3,690 sq ft in total and is connected to Shore Cottage, affording a total area of approximately 4,920 sq ft. The properties have separate titles and could be used as one home or treated separately as a principal house and independent guest/occasional accommodation. There are two driveways, one from Shore Road and one from behind the property, accessed via a right of way from Taylor's Lane, which is also the primary access at high tide.

      The layout of Shore House, with generous, interconnecting dining and living spaces throughout the ground floor, is superbly suited to family life and entertaining. The wonderful kitchen, dining, reception room, with its dual aspect, is the ideal ‘heart of the house'. From each of the reception spaces there are views over the gardens and water, affording all-year-round enjoyment of this very special setting.

      On the first floor, the principal suite enjoys views across the water. There is also a guest double, a single bedroom, which could also serve as a study, and a wet room. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The substantial utility room has been designed to cater for a family immersed in sailing life with plenty of space to store clothing and equipment. The 2011 re-design of the house introduced smart technology, such as underfloor heating and wiring for electric blinds.

      Shore Cottage has its own front entrance and can also be accessed from the main house. The cottage is carefully kept, with a charming sitting room/dining room, galley kitchen, ground floor bedroom and two bedrooms with a family bathroom upstairs. The cottage has potential to extend (subject to the usual consents).

      Outside, the gardens and grounds encircle the house and cottage. The two titles in combination extend to approximately 1.28 acres. There is an open and extensive section of lawn to the north and west and a sunken garden with seating area, leading to the sheltered swimming pool with views across the water. Alongside the rear drive, there is a gardener's area with sheds and a greenhouse behind the pool. There is an ample parking area.

    Arguably one of the finest positions on Shore Road providing the widest plot span. The outlook from the property and its garden is absolutely spectacular and many an hour can be had simply enjoying it! For those that enjoy being in or around the water, it doesn't get much better and Bosham itself is a wonderful coastal village.
