PROPERTY SUMMARY During the early Victorian era, 'Thomas Ellis Owen' became prolific in building impressive, detached villas in the oldest part of Southsea (being the western side), as the city grew from its origins around the harbour entrance. Nowadays it is difficult to find an 'Owen' property that provides both 21st Century benefits but still retains a number of the character features of that period, however this recently sympathetically modernised and updated semi-detached home is just one of these properties. 'White Lodge' sits proudly behind a high retaining wall and gated entrance and provides off road car parking (again a rarity in the area), the modernisation has been extensive and provides over 1658 sq ft of living accommodation spread over two primary floors. From the entrance hall there is a cloakroom, a large 'L' shaped drawing room with feature twin doors both with original shutters leading to the front paved garden area, a breakfast room and fitted kitchen (and utility area) on the ground floor with three bedrooms, each having en-suite facilities and a small study landing area on the first floor. Being situated close to St. John's College, the Palmerston Road shopping facilities as well as the historic waterfront and Southsea Common, early internal viewing of this individual property is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
