Full description

This hidden gem of a home will surely appeal to the most discerning of buyers! Behind the pretty white elevations you will find a home of genuine size and quality, offering spacious yet flexible accommodation combined with a generous plot, substantial garaging and a location in the heart of central Southsea. Internally you will find accommodation offering four reception rooms, kitchen, separate utility room, family bathroom, additional cloakroom, five impressive bedrooms (the master with a superb en-suite bathroom), cellar and a raised terrace. Upon arrival you will be struck by the vast frontage and two double iron gates allowing 'drive in, drive out' access, the grounds also offer a number of fine trees ensuring a leafy secluded feel. Our current owners have worked hard during their ownership to create a blend of character and contemporary, this is perfectly illustrated by the wonderful wooden shutters the home retains together with the high ceilings combining with many modern touches such as the independently controlled central heating system, ethernet cabling to principal rooms and striking master bedroom-suite. Inside the home is matched by its sizeable rooms, comfortable yet well laid out ensuring that a family large or small would utilise all the space without compromise.


Auckland Road East sits directly between Lennox Road South and Palmerston Road. Whilst being well off the beaten track it does benefit greatly from being only yards from Southsea beach, the Common and everything that the heart of Southsea has to offer!
