Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

PROPERTY SUMMARY Lake House is a landmark, seafront building which was rebuilt in 2014 replicating the previous imposing Victorian Villa that sat proudly in this Canoe Lake and sea facing position. The current owners took advantage of being one of the first purchasers and in doing so acquired not only Apartment 8 but also number 7, forming them together to create a substantial and impressive home which accommodates the whole of the fourth floor and provides 2540 sq ft of living space which inc. two garages. The apartment comprises; four bedrooms, three bathrooms/shower rooms, a cloakroom, three reception rooms, balcony, a quality fitted kitchen with high standard fitted appliances and a utility room. This apartment has a key operated lift service, two garages, good storage space, en-suite facilities, underfloor heating and double glazing throughout. The front of the property has a south-easterly aspect with large bay windows which take advantage of the panoramic view over Canoe Lake, the Solent and towards Selsey Bill in the distance. The building is perfectly suited for the demands of modern life, yet it retains the characteristics of the former Victorian Villa with beautifully proportioned rooms, yet with a contemporary feel which provides both sophistication and style with 21st Century facilities.

Lake House sits back from the road proudly elevated in, what can only be considered to be an exclusive residential area, being adjacent to Canoe Lake recreation area and only a short distance away from the boutique Albert Road shopping facilities, Palmerston Road and Gunwharf Quays retail and entertainment complex. From Portsmouth & Southsea railway station there are good commutable links to London Waterloo and the road links to the City of Portsmouth and the other primary south coast cities, Southampton Airport and the South Downs National Park.
