PROPERTY SUMMARY In 1884, a wealthy Dorset land owner purchased much of the land in the area and spent the next twenty five years investing in Lee-on-the-Solent, to develop the settlement into a 'watering spa'. The Victorian era saw expansion of Lee-on-the-Solent with building of grand houses, the pier and a branch railway. When the pier first opened in 1888 it provided a stopping point for paddle steamers which ran between Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. It is understood that No.19 was built in approximately 1898, in a time when there was great excitement as the area developed into a seaside resort, with a number of impressive, red brick villas being built. This family home which provides over 2,260 sq ft of living accommodation is likely to be one of the primary residences of that era. The accommodation is arranged over two primary floors and comprises; porch, living room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen, family room, two conservatories and a garage on the ground floor with four bedrooms, one having an en-suite shower room, family bathroom and separate cloakroom on the first floor. Within the grounds are a second garage and home office/studio, ideal for those looking to work from home, being in a sought after location within a stone's through from the beach and within level walking distance of Lee-on-the-Solent's range of amenities, close by is the renowned tennis club with squash courts, Portsmouth Naval Gliding club and Hampshire Aeroplane club, Lee-On-Solent sailing club and golf clubs, wind surfing amenities are close by, as well as local independent shops, restaurants and public houses. School catchment area for Lee-On-Solent Infant and Primary School, Bay House Secondary School and Sixth Form as well as Meoncross Private School. The property has been sympathetically restored, retaining a number of the original character features, however adding modern day facilities, an enclosed rear garden with feature areas, providing both security and privacy, early internal viewing of this impressive, detached family home is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
