Of Georgian origin Battery House was completely renovated in 2007, to create a luxury house of 4 double bedrooms, 3 en-suite and a top floor living area with roof terrace, all rooms offering views of either Portsmouth Harbour entrance and The Solent or down the English Channel. Situated in Old Portsmouth, on the corner of Battery Row and Grand Parade, Battery house is located in an area steeped in maritime history. Admiral Lord Nelson (England's most famous sea captain - whose ship HMS Victory is located in the historic Portsmouth Dockyard) takes pride of place in the centre of Grand Parade. From the front windows the ruined Garrison church (where King Charles II married in 1662) can be seen along with Lord Nelson's statue.
Battery House is a four bedroom Townhouse built over four floors, three of the bedrooms all with en-suites, you benefit from open plan living and dining accommodation on the top floor, with a further floor for the roof terrace. There is an open plan kitchen area within the living accommodation. Extra accommodation included a study and large basement.
The birds-eye view offered from the living area or roof terrace ensures that all the activities on The Solent, world famous for sailing and the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour, which is home to the British Navy are readily observed. Frigates; aircraft carriers; submarines; ferries; cruise ships; container ships and yachts of all sizes regularly pass by the windows. Within walking distance are many museums; including the Historic Dockyard where Nelson's ship HMS Victory is displayed and D-Day Museum. Further afield within Portsmouth is the birthplace of author Charles Dickens.
Southsea, with its beaches and Clarence Pier funfair are easily accessible on foot. Only a short stroll away, The Spinnaker Tower, located at the shopping and entertainment centre at Gunwharf Quays, offers spectacular vies across the whole of The Solent region from its sky top viewing platform. The Isle of Wight, clearly visible from Battery House, features many historic locations and sights of interest is a short ferry or hovercraft ride away (this is world's longest operating hovercraft route and one of the few remaining in the world), whilst Roman and medieval cities (Salisbury, Chichester and Winchester) are nearby, accessible by train or road together with two national parks (New Forest and South Downs) and some of the most beautiful landscapes in England. While also only being 90 minutes by train into central London, making trips to the capital easy and hassle free.
Offered with NO CHAIN, this really is a must view!
