PROPERTY SUMMARY This substantial detached family home sits in a popular residential area and offers flexible, modern accommodation to suit any growing family. It's been extended and decorated throughout by the current owners, resulting in a light, bright family home that's great for young or older children and also has great proximity to parks, Portsdown Hill, the South Coast and motorways for commuting. Keen gardeners will be happy to take on this 92' tiered garden, with plenty of space for all the family to have their own areas, and those who just want to enjoy the secluded outdoor space will be equally happy to sit back and simply enjoy the different patios, following the sun around all day. "It's been a wonderful family home and our children have been so happy here," says the current owner. "It's a lovely quiet close, that's made for a safe, secure family home and as the garden is so large, the children have been able to have their trampoline here and a swimming pool put up in the summer, without encroaching on our eating and entertaining areas at all." The garden is a great additional room, with its tiers and three separate patios, one for each meal as you track the sun throughout the day. "In summer, we're out in the garden at 8am for morning coffee, and still there finishing a glass of wine at 10pm. My favourite space is under the pergola, which is draped by a vine.

It's a very peaceful garden, and feels so secluded from the neighbouring properties, so it's an outdoor space we have really used." In addition to the grape vine, the garden also has fruit trees and blackberries, providing some fun instant produce gardening for adults and children alike. At the front of the property there is a young cherry tree, and also a gravelled drive, with space to park up to 4 cars off the street and a garage. "I love my front door - it's reclaimed and is an unusual arched shape like a church door, and has stained glass panelling, which throws beautiful colours onto the hallway when then sun shines." Inside the front door is a fairly large hallway, and three separate living spaces. The main sitting room has a coal burning fire and provides a welcoming and cosy alternative to the garden for the winter. It leads onto the dining room, which the current owners use as a private sitting area and music room, which has double glazed doors onto the garden. It would also be an ideal playroom, keeping the sitting room clear of clutter for the adults, or could house a piano or make a good space for hobbies such as sewing as it gets the light from the garden and a side window. There's also a separate study, located at the front of the house, tucked away from the family areas for maximum peace and quiet. "My favourite room is the kitchen / breakfast room," says the current owner, and it's easy to see why. It's a wonderfully light and spacious room, with plenty of space for a table - hence why the current owners didn't feel the need to use the separate dining room. "Our table extends to seat 10 and that's still comfortable for family parties. It's great to be able to chat to your guests while you cook, and we have a television in here too, so we spend a lot of time here in the evenings and when the children come in from school it's where they do homework as I prepare the meal."
The kitchen has been thoughtfully decorated, in a fresh Shaker-style, that's modern but with leanings towards the traditional. There's a large range-style cooker, an original Butler-style sink and old mixer tap and a solid oak worktop. Yet the modern conveniences we all want are here too - there's space for an American-style fridge freezer for example. What will draw you to this room though is its atmosphere. You can see the garden from here, which is great for watching the children at play or just calming your mind throughout the day. Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, three of them doubles, and the master has an en-suite dressing room and shower room and family feature bathroom. There's also planning permission in place for a large conservatory to the rear of the property, if you want another project.
The house is a great place for any family, but its location is what makes this property so wonderful for all ages. There's a golf course a short stroll away, which you can actually see from the front bedroom. You can walk out to several parks for children to play or to walk dogs and also to Portsdown Hill, which offers wonderful views of the Solent. You can also walk to local shops and pubs. The local school, Purbrook Park, received good and outstanding in all categories in its latest Ofsted report. For commuters, the M3 and M27 motorways can be reached in 5 minutes, giving you access to Portsmouth for work and the cross-channel ferries, or Chichester for interesting shopping and the theatre. Teens will love to shop at Gunwharf Quays and Port Solent provides entertainment for all the family. In the summer, you're very close to some of the South's best beaches at Wittering, Southsea and Hayling Island. All round, it's a fantastic family home in a great location.
