PROPERTY SUMMARY 'Woodend' is a rather grand substantial family home, although it is tucked away in a private lane which makes it feel rural and even peaceful once you are within the walls of the surprisingly large garden and car parking area. It is a flexible home with plenty of space for a large family or those who need plenty of space for entertaining and putting up guests with scope to house an elderly relative, staff or a growing family in the annexe. On the reception and lower grounds floors the sheer number of rooms makes it easy to work from home, to indulge in hobbies that need space or just find your own peace. Located right at the heart of Southsea in walking distance from the shops, highly regarded schools including Portsmouth High School, St. Johns College, The Grammar School and the Victorian waterfront, it is a perfect home for all generations with many different structures. We understand from the current owners that there is potential to extend further with planning consent granted for an addition to the annexe wing. This Grade II Listed symmetrical style property has the main accommodation arranged over three primary floors, the reception level opens to a large hallway with living rooms to either side and a staircase leading down to the rear wing and kitchen / breakfast room, on the upper floor there are three double bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate cloakroom, on the lower ground floor are store rooms and two further rooms, one currently arranged as a bedroom the other as a studio. To the eastern side of the house, accessed from the reception level and lower ground floor is a three storey annexe wing with its own separate entrance, kitchen and cloakroom on the lower ground floor with a living room on the first floor and bedroom with en-suite on the top floor. Located in one of Southsea's oldest conservation areas, this imposing family dwelling has a number of original period features including fire surrounds, stripped and stained architraves, panelled doors and floor boards, within the grounds is a double garage, extensive car parking and a detached octagonal conservatory, set back from the road in a backwater location, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
