The property was originally constructed on an elevated plot in 1912 for the Miller, who in in charge of nearby Slipper Mill, would have been required to work day or night according to the rhythm of the tides. Through the years the property has undergone a number of improvements and extensions. The present owner decided to completely remodel the interior layout and professionally redesign the space. The property now offers an interesting and elegant home, which flows over three floors and offers water views from the front elevation.
The property is approached through an impressive contemporary enclosed glazed porch with a seating area placed to reflect on the beauty of the location. The wide reception hall is both elegant and welcoming linking the charming ground floor accommodation. There is a cloakroom, and an oak staircase rising through the property. Slipper Mill Cottage's contemporary designer kitchen is the luxury Mowlem brand, featuring natural stone work surfaces, Siemens appliances and a thermostatically controlled wine cabinet. Focus of the sociable kitchen layout is the counter breakfast bar and family area; with its Morso solid fuel burner for cooler evenings and bi-fold doors opening onto the garden terrace for drinks in the summer this a delightful space which opens into the adjacent dining area with its controlled lighting suitable for formal or informal gatherings. The twin aspect library and media room allows for the quiet enjoyment of the arts.
Slipper Cottage’s first floor accommodation flows from the oak balustrade landing with its breath taking principle bedroom suite positioned to enjoy the view over the Mill Pond, the spacious dressing area is furnished with bespoke fitted wardrobes and locker style storage seating which leads to the en-suite shower room. The guest bedroom also has bespoke fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower room. There is a further double bedroom on this floor. The striking family bathroom is furnished with an imposing bath and separate glazed shower cubicle with waterfall shower. On the second floor there is an additional bedroom, which is currently used as a studio and has an en-suite shower room.
Outside, the property is surrounded by landscaped gardens with a coastal theme, thoughtfully designed west, south and east facing terraces for drinks and relaxation are complimented by sympathetic planting.

The Slipper Mill Cottage lies within an easy walk to central Emsworth and its Town Square. This thriving town offers a choice of local independent shops, Co-operative Store, Post Office and local amenities including doctor and dentist surgeries, tearooms, pubs and a range of restaurants. A short distance from the Square, South Street leads onto the foreshore with a public slipway.

Emsworth is situated on the upper reaches of Chichester Harbour which was designated An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1964, recognising its unspolit beauty. It has a wealth of wild and bird life, with many quiet creeks and rythes which combine with its beautiful shoreline, made up for the most part of trees and arable farmland. To the north are the Sown Downs, England's newest National Park, for those wishing to pursue country sports.
