Property: Three To View - Pretty as a picture
Saturday 26 September 1998
"Because of their position, these properties are rarely offered for sale," says estate agent Neil Bone. "They can command a hefty premium, often in the range of some 30 per cent more than the equivalent property without the waterside position."
The view also includes Emsworth harbour - it's a popular sailing village, straddling Hampshire and West Sussex. The recently refurbished three-storey cottage has an additional 17ft 8ins by 14ft 10ins attic bedroom/studio, bedrooms with period fireplaces and a large kitchen. Bathroom and kitchen were replaced last year. At the back of the 75ft garden, there's a large timber garage. Perfect for the second home buyer. pounds 180,000 through Henry Adams & Partners (01243 377773).
GARLINGE COTTAGE, in the tiny North Downs village of Garlinge Green, falls conveniently into the area around Canterbury popular for its good schools and pretty countryside. The 19th century three-bedroom cottage was extended by the current owner, an architect, and has a 15ft dining hall leading into a large sitting room with open fire. Canterbury or Faversham have mainline rail links into London, the journey taking just over an hour, but its proximity to France has already attracted cross Channel interest. pounds 180,000 through Calcutt Maclean Standen (01233 812060).
FISHERMANS, a Grade II listed former lodge in Dartmoor National Park could hardly be in a more classically English spot. The grounds reach down to the river's edge and the Clapper Bridge. Some 21 miles from Exeter, the five-bedroom house has views across the river and the moor.
The 26ft drawing room has granite and stone fireplaces at each end. In addition there is a 22ft sitting room with exposed timbers, the dining room has panelled walls and the 19ft kitchen has a four-oven Aga and beamed ceiling. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Outside, there is a detached two-storey barn. Price guide pounds 245,000 through GA (01392 427070).
