The house is adjacent to Portsmouth Cathedral and a only a short walk from the Camber (where the fishing boats and fishmongers frequent), Gunwharf Quays and the Ferry port to the Isle of Wight. Old Portsmouth has some of the oldest existing buildings in Portsmouth and Southsea with the Hot Walls craft centre, Round and Square towers that formed part of the original fortifications for the City. Spice Island is where the pubs are that overlook the Harbour and Gunwharf Quays. Historically, the property, amongst other uses was formerly an ale-house known as 'The Ruby' which dated back to the 16th century with Tudor features in the cellar. but the existing house dates back to the mid to late 17th Century. The unusual Dutch Gables are possibly due to Dutch Engineers who added the top floor of the property. The stucco plasterwork outside was a later addition. The accommodation comprises a split level entrance hall, 'L' shaped living room with double aspect sash windows, various cupboards, a downstairs cloakroom, and an 'L' shaped modern kitchen/diner with built-in appliances and direct access to a very small courtyard area. Stairs from the hall lead down to the original cellar (with restricted head height) that would have been the beer cellar for the pub. The first floor has the main bedroom, fitted wardrobe cupboards to the landing and access to the sunny terrace which sits over the kitchen, Stairs then lead up to the top floor where there is a main shower room and a second bedroom with en-suite shower room.
