PROPERTY SUMMARY What can only be described as a truly outstanding location with panoramic views over Portsmouth Harbour, the Solent and towards the Isle of Wight. This unique family home was built in 2006 with quality and flexibility of living in mind. The accommodation is arranged over three floors, each floor having its own external space with either terrace areas, balconies or roof terraces. ‘Boom Tower’ sits proudly at the harbour entrance with its castellated frontage, as the original building would have done many years ago, helping to protect Portsmouth Harbour from invasion.
The Boom defences have great maritime interest dating back to the Square Tower and Henry VIII Tudor period to the late Victorian/early Edwardian days. The Defence Booms were still in use at the beginning of the 20th century and actively used during World War 1. It is therefore with no surprise that Boom Tower sits on what can only be described as one of the City’s most prestigious positions.
The accommodation comprises; entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen/family room and a number of utility rooms on the ground floor with lift service and oak staircase rising to the first floor which has three large bedrooms all with walk-in dressing areas and en-suite bathrooms. The lift and staircase continue to the top floor where there is an outstanding master bedroom suite and access to the roof top terrace, the largest of the terraces. A great deal of care and detail has been taken in the reconstruction of the property and consideration given to modern facilities with surround sound systems, ‘Sky’ cabling to all primary rooms, central heating and a substantial amount of character with curved internal and external walls, wood surround double glazed windows, extensive insulation a lift service and security system. Extending approximately 2800 sq.ft. with secure car parking facilities, early internal viewing of this truly unique home is strongly recommended.
