PROPERTY SUMMARY 'Garrison View' is a Victorian semi-detached property which is set back behind a 120' driveway and front garden, backing onto the former 'Victoria' barracks. The barracks provided living accommodation for infantry units during the late Victorian period, the central tower was hit by a bomb and seriously damaged during the Second World War, after the war the barracks were taken over by the Royal Navy and eventually demolished in 1967, the site was subsequently developed for residential use and is now known as Pembroke Park. This impressive home is unusual in so many ways, having a large deep fronted garden with driveway, car parking and a rear enclosed garden wrapping behind the adjacent property. The accommodation has been updated and improved with the benefits of a recently replaced bathroom, a fitted kitchen, sash style double glazed windows and central heating. The accommodation provides 1873 sq ft of living space over two primary floors and comprises; hallway, cloakroom, utility room, kitchen/breakfast room, open plan dining and living room as well as a conservatory on the ground floor with three bedrooms, one currently arranged as a home office/study with fitted units, an en-suite shower room and family bathroom on the first floor. Being located within a short distance of the Napoleonic Sea defences, the Harbour entrance, Royal Garrison Church as well as Portsmouth Grammar School, St. Jude's primary and junior schools, this location is described by many as being a village within a city. There are a number of highly regarded pubs and restaurants, a fish market, sailing club and Portsmouth Cathedral all within a few minutes' walk. Having no forward chain, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
