Exceptionally well positioned in the heart of southsea town centre, this very spacious purpose-built 3 double bedroom duplex penthouse offers some 1300 sq. Ft. Of living space whilst also boasting a generous roof terrace, secure underground parking space, replacement double-glazing, gas central heating, and panoramic views. Tower House is the principal, eleven-storey, part of a mid-1960s' complex occupying a prominent location at the junction of Clarendon Road with Malvern Road - a level walk of around 500 yards only from Palmerston Road Shopping Precinct and a similar distance from The Common and Seafront. This very convenient position places the wide-ranging public amenities of Central Southsea and historic Old Portsmouth within a radius of some one mile. One of just three individually designed penthouses within the building, 1003 is available now to the open market for the first time in 38 years. Its extensive accommodation sets it apart from most of its competitors, whilst the outlook is, given the non-Seafront address, both a surprise and a huge asset - all main rooms taking in the city's skyline, those with windows to the south and east ranging further afield towards The Solent, with its many passing vessels and leisure craft, also Hayling Island, and The Isle of Wight.
