The living room and dining room are connected by French doors providing a complete walk around of the ground floor perfect for entertaining.
On the first floor two double bedrooms both have en-suite shower rooms and built-in wardrobes, while the other two single bedrooms one of which has built-in wardrobes, share a family bathroom. On the upper floor you will find the master bedroom with en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobes. There is a glimpse of Spinnaker Tower from the en-suite window. The final bedroom which again is a double with recess for wardrobes has access to the loft. This has been lagged and boarding and has light. It is a fantastic size and provides lots of potential.
Outside there is parking on block paving for three cars. The garage is double length with over head storage and door to garden. There is a path to front door and path to other side with a gate giving access to the rear garden.
The south facing garden is private and has a patio area, green house, raised borders for vegetables and herbs and finally a pond has been newly created.
The famous and now popular Priddy's Hard is home to impressive modern developments. Being close to the water these fortunate residents have a short walk to the waters edge to benefit stunning views towards Portsmouth and Gunwharf Quays with the Spinnaker Tower standing proudly guarding the city.
In 1750, by an Act of King George III, the Board of Ordnance purchased 40 acres of land and a boatyard, in Gosport, from Jane Priddy and a Fareham Vicar called the Reverend Thomas Missing. This was the beginning of Priddy's Hard Armament Depot and by 1757 the area was completely sealed off to the Public.
In Nelson's days, HMS Victory and the other vessels were also supplied from here; the Grand Magazine held no less than 4,500 barrels of gunpowder, each weighing around 45Kg. It was build using over 3 million bricks with walls eight feet thick. With easy access to Portsmouth Dockyard, a short distance across the harbour, Priddy's Hard was an ideal location for the magazine.
Weapons were made at Priddy's Hard until fairly recently but, with the advent of modern technology, the old buildings were not really up to the job and it was closed down. Thankfully some of its former glory is now preserved and it's been turned into the Museum of naval firepower called simply "Explosion".
Agent's Note: The property does require some modernisation but this is clearly reflected in the price.
