Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This Grade II listed, double fronted Georgian terraced house is a striking example of the flair and style of the 'Father of Southsea', Thomas Ellis Owen, built circa 1837 and owned by his family right through to 1891. Having changed ownership only a handful of times since then, the property has remained predominantly in the possession of the current owner's family since 1921. With clean lines and symmetry typical of the age, arch topped picture windows and a grandness befitting its history, the property is nestled behind a boundary wall shared with six other properties (also known as 'Queen's Terrace'). The house enjoys an expansive garden, space for parking multiple vehicles and quiet seclusion not often found so close to the centre of Southsea. From 2007, the current owner undertook a complete renovation with a detailed and sympathetic schedule of works to shore up the property for the future whilst retaining the period charm. The roof structure was replaced with new Welsh slates on modern felt together with new leadwork. The party walls were repaired, the adjoining chimneys rebuilt, all floors boards and joists replaced with modern timber and new bespoke windows and frames made identical to the originals (with the exception of the two entrance level reception windows which remained). The electrical and plumbing systems were also replaced along with damp and water proofing to the lower levels. The exhaustive renovation was carried out to the standard of regulations of the time and in accordance with planning consents, building regulation and listed building consent. The internal accommodation comprises; from the front door, an entrance hall giving way to matching reception rooms on either side, versatile in their design and equally suitable for use as extra bedrooms. The lower ground floor is now an open plan space with a modern fitted kitchen and island plus ample space for dining, and a lounge area. This room also gives access to a small courtyard at the rear and doors leading to stairs at the front of the property, back to the patio and front garden. The former coal hole is now a utility space with W.C. The mezzanine level leading to the first floor holds a cloakroom and the first floor itself offers three double bedrooms and a spacious four-piece bathroom suite. With its character, history, location, land and parking, properties of this calibre are rare to the market and so an early inspection is recommended and offers invited circa £685,000.
