PROPERTY SUMMARY An outstanding link-detached family home with a separate self contained lower ground floor apartment. The accommodation provides generous proportioned rooms with plenty of living space, with a light and airy aspect. 'Hambledon House' sits in one of Southsea's most desirable and rather exclusive residential areas, which is tucked just off Eastern Parade and within easy access of Canoe Lake and the Historic Victorian waterfront. The accommodation has been sympathetically modernised and updated including recent internal and external redecoration to primary rooms and could be described as perfectly suited for family life and those who like to entertain as it has an extensive open plan kitchen leading to an impressive Orangery as well as two large reception rooms.
The accommodation is arranged over four floors, three of which are in the main house and offer; five bedrooms, the master with a large en-suite bathroom and separate shower room and a recently updated 'Romanesque' style feature bathroom. On the lower ground floor is a self contained three bedroom apartment with separate entrance, shower room, kitchen, separate heating and electrical system, providing potential for home and income or can be easily incorporated back into the main house.

The rear garden has mature trees and hedges which is accessible from both the Drawing Room and Orangery. To the front is a gated entrance with off road car parking and garage with decked terrace over. Retaining a number of original features including fire surrounds, high ceilings, ceiling covings and high skirting boards, 'Hambledon House' provides flexible accommodation for families, home workers or those who need space to entertain. Being within easy access of Eastern Parade, Canoe Lake, the boutique shops of both Marmion Road and Albert Road, and within walking distance of the bustling and entertaining area of Gunwharf Quays and the highly regarded 'Private' schools, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate what the accommodation and location have to offer.
