PROPERTY SUMMARY An excellent opportunity to acquire an impressive Grade II* listed Regency townhouse within the iconic Crescent, in one of Hampshire's foremost historical addresses which has far reaching views towards Stokes Bay, the Solent and Osborne House (former residence of Queen Victoria), on the Isle of Wight. When you purchase a property of this historical interest you are buying more than just a family home in an enviable position, you are also preserving a little slice of history for the next generation. No.18 has over 3,520 sq ft of living accommodation arranged over five floors and comprises; hallway, feature dining room with curved internal wall, a kitchen and utility room on the reception level with the formal drawing room and balcony, shower room and sitting room on the first floor level with two bedrooms both with en-suite facilities on the second floor and three further bedrooms and bathroom on the top floor. The lower ground floor is currently used as music studio with a home office/study and a variety of workshops/store rooms. A great deal of care and attention has been put into designing the front and rear gardens with the rear garden walls dating back to 1829. To the rear, accessible from Anglesey Arms Road and under the adjacent coach house is a garage and car hardstanding area. From the drawing and bedrooms above there are outstanding views towards Stokes Bay and the Isle of Wight beyond, over the English Heritage Gardens, to the rear overlooking the 92' rear garden are views over rooftops towards Portsdown Hill in the distance.
The property has a great deal of charm and character with stripped floor boards, sash style windows, high skirting boards, panelled doors and coving. Alverstoke itself has the feeling of a village within a city, with local shopping amenities, pubs, tearooms and a church. For commuters this aesthetically pleasing Crescent is situated under eight miles from the A/M27, whilst the passenger ferry providing access to Portsmouth with the mainline rail links to London Waterloo in approximately 1hr and 45 minutes as well as Portsmouth Grammar School, Gunwharf Quays retail and restaurants and Victorian waterfront city of Southsea, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
