PROPERTY SUMMARY Solent House has the best of two worlds, it is located in a popular established, residential location yet within minutes' walk of the Victorian promenade, Rose Gardens, Canoe Lake and the seafront.

There is 2780 sq ft of living space with five bedrooms, two bathrooms (one being an en-suite), three reception areas and a large 22 'L' shaped kitchen/breakfast room.
