About this property

  • The property is an elegant Grade II Listed Georgian town house situated close to the City Centre and believed to have been built in circa 1840 as officers' accommodation for the Peninsula Barracks. The house offers extensive accommodation over three floors, extending in all to just under 2,000 sq ft. The property is approached via steps leading up to the front door, which opens into a large and welcoming reception hall typical of a house of this era, with a fine staircase leading to the first floor. The cloakroom lies off the reception hall. The principal reception room is on the ground floor with its beautiful ceiling heights, ceiling cornicing, stripped wood floor and beautiful feature fireplace with fitted wood burner and two full height double windows. The drawing room is an exceptionally elegant room, perfect for entertaining. Also on the ground floor is Bedroom three with its adjoining shower room. This room is equally elegant with ceiling cornicing, full height double window and stripped wood floor.

    The staircase leads down to the lower ground floor. On the lower ground floor is a further hallway with a door leading to outside. The hallway has a large under-stair storage area. There are two rooms on the lower ground floor: the living room and the kitchen. The living room is a very good size, double aspect with a feature open fireplace and stripped wood flooring. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted with a range of contemporary units with work surfaces over and fitted appliances, central work station and a feature fireplace with the original range. There are two large cupboards, one a pantry and the other a utility area. On the first floor the master bedroom is of an exceptionally good size. There is a second double bedroom and a beautifully fitted shower room, refitted in 2018.

    OUTSIDE
    The property is approached through a wide gate leading into the garden area of the property, where a shingle path provides access to the front door. On the southern side of the house is a well screened private area which has been laid to artificial grass, and steps lead up to a raised terraced area, ideal for entertaining. The gardens, which are secluded and protected from Romsey Road by a large brick and flint wall, are an extremely attractive feature of the property, having a sunny south and west aspect.

The house occupies a lovely secluded South to West garden, unique for a City townhouse. The interior of the house is exceptional, high ceilings and an abundance of natural light from the tall sash windows. A great City pad.
