This individual detached dwelling is situated on the western side of Havant Road, shortly after passing onto Hayling Island from Langstone. The house was built by, and indeed is still owned by, the Pycroft family and was, at one time, the hub of the Pycroft brickmaking facility with many homes on Hayling Island constructed from the locally famous Pycroft bricks.
The house, which was also of course built from Pycroft bricks, is now in need of a programme of upgrading and refurbishment but is considered very worthy of the improvements required which may include extension to enlarge the existing living accommodation, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
The house enjoys a pleasant and more formal garden but has the additional benefit of a significant land holding to the west and to the north with the overall plot extending to 2.42 hectares (5.99 acres). This includes a substantial barn which is situated towards the western edge of the land.
The site sits neatly between Havant Road to the east, while to the west is the route of the former Hayling Island to Havant railway, now in use as the Hayling Billy trail providing walking, cycling and views over Langstone Harbour.
To the south of the site is a further 10.5 acres of woodland which is available separately in the auction as Lot 86 and it is considered that this additional woodland may be of interest to anyone seeking to purchase the house and land available in this lot.
Entrance hall, living room, kitchen, utility room, bathroom with W.C. and conservatory.
Landing, four bedrooms, cloakroom with W.C.
Car parking and garage to the front of the dwelling. Formal gardens and plot extending to six acres including the detached barn.
