Full description

Tenure: Freehold

With an abundance of off-road parking and living accommodation spread out over 1750 sq ft, this freehold semi-detached house in the secluded 'Oyster Mews' in French Street boasts everything you are looking for in your new property; including three double bedrooms and en-suite to master bedroom.

The quirks and character are noticeable right from the moment you step down Oyster Mews and approach the iron gate, which is handmade by a local blacksmith and provides secure access to your front door and high wall enclosed courtyard garden which is a true sun-trap. The entrance hall to this home immediately opens into the unique curved staircase rising to all floors which is a personal favourite feature of this property for Fox & Sons. Often in Old Portsmouth a single garage is offered as a parking solution, or a smaller hard standing, but this property proudly boasts a double garage with electric roller doors and a driveway with parking for a further two cars. This even gives flexibility to any bold new owner who may be consider turning the considerably sized garage (18"03 x 16"07) in to another bedroom, additional study or reception room as parking will never be a problem and this conversion could easily be done, as the double garage is connected integrally on the ground floor. The potential for extension or conversions continue on the second floor, with scope to be able to build over the kitchen on the first floor, subject to necessary permissions. The existing property however we feel will be suitable for a growing family, with a wealth of living accommodation including a 17 ft living room with access to the aforementioned sunny balcony, and a ground floor shower room which is in addition to the family bathroom and en-suite to master.
