Set in the picturesque grounds of Royal Victoria Country Park within a gated setting amongst well tended formal gardens, a stunning first floor three bedroom apartment extending to approximately 1600 square feet. The building is Grade II listed and is particularly attractive, constructed in C19th in Italianate style and was originally used as the officer’s mess. Nightingale Walk was were Royal Army medical corps officers lived and held official dinners in the banqueting hall behind. The building was then converted into apartments in two phases over a three-year period from 1987, and unlike many of the other apartments, my clients have owned No 10 from new. The accommodation is glorious with lovely high ceilings and large sash windows. There are some updating works to do internally but the space really is superb with an impressive main reception room overlooking the park to the front and the private courtyard area to the rear. There are three bedrooms, two of which are double proportions and two bathrooms. Outside, the apartments are approached via a gated entrance where there is ample parking, this leads in turn to the rear where the garages are situated. No 10 benefits from a double garage with power and light. There are glorious gardens to the rear within a courtyard setting with feature pond and seating areas.
The Royal Victoria Country Park is adjacent to Southampton Water. It comprises 200 acres of mature woodland and grassy parkland, as well as a small shingle beach and has a range of activities with a play area, BBQ areas, a café in addition to events held throughout the year in the Chapel. A short walk takes you to Netley Abbey Village where there are local shops and main bus routes or to Netley Railway station. Southampton Airport - Parkway Railway station with mainline connection to London Waterloo is 8.4 miles away.
