5 bedroom terraced house for saleSussex Road, Southsea
A SPACIOUS, FLEXIBLE AND WELL-PROPORTIONED LAYOUT OF 4/5 BEDROOMS AND 3/4 LIVING ROOMS, THE CHARACTER OF A GRADE II LISTED BUILDING, GENEROUS GARDEN, AND OFF-STREET PARKING. COMBINE THESE ASSETS WITH A TUCKED AWAY, YET EXCEPTIONALLY CONVENIENT POSITION IN SOUTHSEA'S HISTORIC HEART AND THE RESULT IS A TRULY 1st CLASS FAMILY HOME.
Queens Terrace, as this elegant and stylish group was named when built between 1837 and 1840, is the work of Thomas Ellis Owen, the renowned architect and developer responsible for much of early-Victorian Southsea. Now a protected Conservation Area, the location is a short walk only from the Town Centre with its pedestrianised shopping precinct (Waitrose, Knight & Lee and Debenhams), range of schools (Mayville, St Johns College, and Portsmouth High School), and Seafront.
Wider public amenities are provided by Portsmouth City Centre (University Campus, main-line station, etc.), whilst nearby Old Portsmouth hosts Portsmouth Grammar School, The Cathedral of St Thomas, Historic Naval Dockyard, and the vibrant Gunwharf Quays retail and leisure complex with The Spinnaker Tower. This level of ready access to facilities is belied by the house's backwater setting, the terrace's shared garden forecourt affording very effective screening as well as off-street parking for the residents. All in all an opportunity of significant rarity and appeal, recommended strongly to discerning buyers.
