This beautiful Victorian character villa, built in 1902, is situated in the heart of Locks Heath. It is an area that has become more and more popular due to schools of excellent repute, access to public transport, rail and commuter routes to Southampton and Portsmouth, and the commerce centres of Whiteley and Segensworth. The property is within a ten minute walk to the Locks Heath Shopping Centre with its shopping facilities of, Pharmacy, independent butchers, hardware store, popular coffee house, Iceland and Waitrose supermarket. Five minutes' walk to the primary School, and ten to fifteen minutes to the Senior School. And, it's a mere stroll down the road to the local Inn.
Just under 2 miles to the foreshore at Warsash and the River Hamble, famous to the yachting fraternity, this property is in an area that contains a network of footpaths through woodlands and along coastal trails, following the River Hamble, and coastline toward Gosport.
The Hamble is a haven for maritime and wildlife enthusiasts, avid walkers, cyclists and ramblers. An ideal address for those looking for activities, and amenities, close to hand.
The property is a rare entry to the market having remained in the hands of the same occupant for many years. It holds a wealth of character and period charm, yet is set in the most convenient of locations, occupying a secluded and sizeable, sunny aspect, plot. It has a warm welcoming feel further enhanced by a good internal layout and has been meticulously cared for over the years with varnished tongue and groove pine flooring, hardy neutral carpeting and the addition of smart double glazed sash-and-tilt windows. The bedroom accommodation is well proportioned with large windows allowing the light to stream in, good storage with the original built-in wardrobes. Plus, there is a spacious bathroom.
However the ground floor is where days are spent. This is a really interesting and individual home, it has stylish flashes of continental, country and city influences. The fine grain of the pine, the robust Rayburn cooker, ceilings of a nice height, the sash windows and excellent storage make this a fantastic homestead and retreat, with scope to extend subject to planning. To complement; the garden is secluded and established, it's a cottage style with excellent parking to the front and a wide sideway. Borders are well stocked with ornate shrubbery, miniature trees and perennials offering bursts of colour throughout the seasons and a welcome habitat for foraging wildlife. There are secret hidden spaces ideal for storing boats and trailers. A log store, and sizeable wooden shed.
In summary, this is a well situated character home set in a good plot, in a quiet road, and in the most convenient of locations. It offers one a blank canvas upon which to create and extend. As it stands, it is a lovely individual property with excellent storage and well proportioned, versatile accommodation. An early inspection is highly recommended.
