Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

PROPERTY SUMMARY Teapot Row is a landmark Grade II Listed building which forms part of the former Royal Marines Barracks and was once occupied by the General and his senior officers before being converted into twenty three apartments in 1995. We understand that No.9 was chosen as the show apartment because of its location and impressive water fronting views. The apartment is located on the reception level and provides 1656 sq ft of living space with the sitting room, bedroom one and en-suite bathroom all having large arched windows with original shutters to the front aspect and outstanding views towards the Solent. The apartment has a further bedroom, bathroom and 17' fitted kitchen. Investing in such an apartment, you are buying more than just a home in an enviable position and impressive building, you are also preserving a little slice of history for the next generation. Considered by many to one of the most sought after locations along the Victorian Promenade, the imposing five storey, extensive terrace is approached by via remote control gates leading to an impressive T shaped driveway which wraps around to the back of the building where there are allocated residents and guests parking bays and garaging. The primary rooms have a southerly facing aspect with tall arched windows, high ceilings providing an airy feel and natural light. Since this highly regarded conversion was completed there have been few of the apartments on the market, therefore this is an extremely rare opportunity for those looking for one level living. The apartment is offered with no forward chain, two allocated car parking spaces and a garage, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
