Leaders are delighted to offer for sale this " SUPERB ONE OF A KIND 4 BEDROOM HOUSE WITH VERY FLEXIBLE LIVING ACCOMMODATION" Located in the heart of Castle Road, which is known for its variety of independent cafes, antique shops and boutiques. If you are seeking a city living property, but also within minutes of the beach then this could just be the ideal home for you.
Built in 1916 as a pair of character cottages on the site of a former brewery, this stunning and unique property has had various incarnations, such as a cafe and a guest house, as well as having been converted and joined, to offer a large single property. Prior to the current owners buying the house, it was owned by a professional couple who with their children, used the upper floors as a maisonette, allowing the entire ground floor level to become a self-contained `Granny flat'. The current owners bought the property in 1983 and have lovingly and carefully renovated the property. Major changes that have significantly enhanced the property, such as converting a very large stairwell that ran through all floors of the house into a room (currently used as a study) on the first floor level and a bathroom on the second floor, continue to provide a uniqueness and charm that is now rarely found. The current garden, large for Southsea and originally an open area of rubble, is now fully walled. A railing now fronts the first floor patio and stairs now lead from that external space to a ground level courtyard garden and then through a gate, into the main garden. From here, a door allows rear access to the garage and separate off-road parking and a gate provides useful access from the rear of the property for pedestrians and cycles, to the road. Yet further enhancements make this deceptively large property a MUST SEE!
