Property description

Tenure: Freehold

PROPERTY SUMMARY Terminology like deceptive, spacious or 'tardis' are often mistakenly used to describe properties, however in this particular case all three could easily be used to portray this four storey townhouse which is situated within the heart of the historical conservation area of Old Portsmouth and within 200 yards of the harbour entrance and the oldest part of the city. From the first floor level and above there are views towards the Camber Dock, the BAR Headquarters, Spinnaker Tower and Gunwharf Quays. To the rear is an enclosed garden, accessible from the sun lounge and ideal for 'al fresco' dining. Within close proximity are a selection of restaurants, public houses and the Gunwharf Quays retail and social entertaining areas, there is also easy access to Portsmouth Harbour railway station which provides commutable links to London Waterloo as well as Commercial Road shopping area. Referred to by many as a 'village' type environment within a city, the house is ideally situated for the Sailing Club, fish market and the old fishing harbour. The accommodation provides 1743 sq ft of living space arranged over four floors and comprises; porch, hallway, utility room, cloakroom, kitchen / dining room and conservatory on the ground floor with living room, two bedrooms (study), one having an en-suite shower room on the first floor, a further two bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor and an 'L' shaped bedroom on the top floor.
