PROPERTY SUMMARY This property represents an opportunity to purchase an interesting and deceptively spacious family home in the centre of one of the oldest conservation areas and sectors of Southsea. It represents the primary third of a substantial Victorian villa which was converted in approximately 2001 and is concealed behind high rendered walls and a remote control gateway, which leads to an area of off-road car parking for 2 cars. It provides a secure yet peaceful seclusion within the heart of the city and is yet within only a few minutes walk of the vibrant shopping district of Palmerston and Marmion Roads, the historic waterfront and highly regarded schools including Portsmouth Grammar, St. Johns College and the High School. The primary rooms have high ceilings, large windows, newly fitted carpets throughout and a light and airy feel with the drawing room having a feature fireplace to one end. The lower ground floor has a 19ft 'Poggenpohl' fitted kitchen / dining room, cloakroom and utility areas, on the reception level is an impressive hallway, cloakroom and living room with the three bedrooms and a feature bathroom on the first floor, the master bedroom with en-suite wet room and separate dressing room are on the top floor. The location can only be described as 'backwater' as it sits quaintly behind a high wall, street fronting and with no forward chain, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
