Situated within a conservation area, a prestigious and highly desirable Grade II listed Victorian villa offering nearly 7000 square feet of exquisite accommodation with an abundance of character features throughout and set in glorious gardens approaching half of an acre and benefiting from extensive parking.

Very rarely does an opportunity arise to acquire such an impressive residence, originally built in 1843 by Thomas Ellis Owen, a renowned English architect and developer who was responsible for many of the buildings that still exist in Southsea today. The property is truly stunning with both the exterior elevation and interior structure being quite striking. My clients have resided at the property for 8 years; it has the hallmarks of quality throughout, exuding charm with gloriously high ceilings and skirtings, ornate cornicing, original doors and ample fireplaces amongst well planned and proportioned accommodation situated over 4 floors. Upon entering it is immediately apparent of how impressive this residence is with its stunning original wide staircase and roof lantern pouring light into the property. There are four reception rooms on the ground floor; the Sitting Room in particular is magnificent, triple aspect with French doors leading to the delightful gardens and centring on a marble fireplace with log burning stove. The live in kitchen/breakfast room is situated on the lower ground floor and, like the Sitting Room, is some 45ft in length with extensive painted cupboards and integral appliances and connects to the wine and coal cellars. There are two ensuite bedrooms on this floor, which could be converted into an annexe if needed, currently utilised as an AirBnB for additional income, with doors leading to outside. Excluding the lower ground floor bedrooms, there are five bedrooms situated over two floors, all of double proportions with three bathrooms. The triple aspect master bedroom suite is truly impressive being of grand proportions and benefits from a large dressing room and ensuite bathroom.

Outside, the beautiful walled gardens extend to approximately half an acre, reputedly one of Southsea’s largest gardens. The property also benefits from extensive parking for approximately 10 cars.

The property is situated within a conservation area, a short walk from the seafront itself and local amenities including supermarkets and department stores. A good choice of local private schools, including Portsmouth Grammar School, Portsmouth High School for Girls, St John’s & Mayville are all within walking distance. Southsea is very accessible from the A/M27 motorways and there are several train stations nearby with excellent links to London Waterloo.
