Your private dock comes with a listed mansion
YOU can park your boat at the bottom of the garden at Wharf House in Emsworth, Hampshire. With a private dock and access to the Emsworth Channel leading to pretty Chichester Harbour in West Sussex, this Grade II-listed six-bedroom home brings to mind the type of Long Island location loved by US film stars — but it’s less than two hours’ drive from London. Clad in wisteria and clematis and with a flagstone terrace, it sits in landscaped gardens by renowned designer John Brookes. A pergola leads along the back of the garaging to an area ideal for an outdoor swimming pool. But first you need to splash out £3.4 million — not so very eye-watering if you are used to London property prices.
