Asking price- O/O £650,000
Viewings-by appointment through are delighted to welcome to the market this spacious, full of character, immaculately presented and recently refurbished 3 bedroom semi-detached property. There is also additional room for development by converting garage space to accommodation at minimal expense (with quote available). The property has an ideal location, situated in the historic Camber area of Old Portsmouth, adjacent to the natural harbour entrance and Camber dock, the Napoleonic waterfront nearby, and recently tastefully renovated 'Hot Walls with local artists boutiques installed in the arches providing additional charm and interest. The plethera of additional amenities include Portsmouth Cathedral, Garrison Church, highly regarded schools including Portsmouth Grammar School, excellent shops, Gun Wharf retail outlet, many restaurants and pubs and extensive transport links all within close walking distance.

The accomodation is beautifully tucked away at the end of French Street which is a small spur off White Hart Road. The driveway with space for 2 cars (a rarity in Old Portsmouth) is wonderfully private and not overlooked. Access to the front door is via the hand made iron gate which completes the sense of character and security.

The accommodation consists of, on the ground floor, an entrance hallway, integral garage with ground floor access, utility room, bedroom, and shower room. On the first floor there is a spacious living room with balcony views overlooking the harbour on one side and the Cathedral on the other. Also on the first floor is the well-appointed modern kitchen/diner. On the second floor there is a master bedroom with en-suite facilities, a second additional bedroom, and a bathroom. The property has a pre-installed alarm system, and gas central heating provided by a recently installed high efficiency Vaillant combi boiler, double glazed windows (still under guarantee) throughout and cavity wall insulation. Externally, in addition to the large driveway there is a private, spacious, non overlooked and secure south facing suntrap rear garden.

We believe this stylish and modern home is a fantastic and unique opportunity in this truly wonderful historic location. It offers the best of both worlds, for anyone seeking a well presented and attractive property, but also additional development opportunities (adding a 4th or even 5th bedroom whilst still retaining good parking, extending the balcony etc as to individual preferences. Early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to fully appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
