Full description

Bernards Southsea are delighted to welcome to the market a little bit of Southsea's heritage and the opportunity to acquire an original Thomas Ellis Owen property. Designed by the revered architect and positioned in a prime and central location, this is a very rare occurrence and Merton House offers an impressive and imposing residence. Tucked away in a very sought after location, this property is situated within walking distance to the local shopping centre, bars, restaurants, amenities and the sea front.

This two bedroom apartment is what you would describe as a quintessential Southsea property and offers visions of a bygone era as you step up and take in the stunning exterior. Internal viewing offers Victorian features throughout including tall ceilings, ornate feature coving as well as ceiling roses to name a few. The property is a spacious, light and airy apartment which really does have that welcoming feel. The property offers a spacious entrance hallway, two double bedrooms, bathroom, separate kitchen and a 20ft lounge, which we believe you will immediately fall in love with. This lovely apartment is offered with the huge added bonus of a sunny aspect conservatory to enjoy those bright afternoons with a cup of tea or something a little stronger.

An allocated parking space is a rare occurrence in Southsea but this property not only has allocated parking but visitors' parking too. If you are not already taken with this quite stunning property, throw in the further advantage of having a share of the freehold and this really does set it apart from the rest. An early viewing is advised to avoid missing out on securing this wonderful home.

Offer Check Procedure - - If you are considering making an offer for this or any other property we are marketing, please make early contact with your local office to enable us to verify your buying position. Our Sellers expect us to report on a Buyer's proceedability whenever we submit an offer. Thank you.

Solicitor - Choosing the right conveyancing solicitor is extremely important to ensure that you obtain an effective yet cost-efficient solution. The lure of supposedly cheaper on-line "conveyancing warehouse" style services can be very difficult to ignore but this is a route fraught with problems that we strongly urge you to avoid. A local, established and experienced conveyancer will safeguard your interests and get the job done in a timely manner. Bernards can recommend several local firms of solicitors who have the necessary local knowledge and will provide a personable service. Please ask a member of our sales team for further details.

Removal Quotes - As part of our drive to assist clients with all aspects of the moving process, we have sourced a reputable removal company. Please ask a member of our sales team for further details and a quotation.
