Set back from the road behind a 45ft driveway and large walled garden, "Woodend" is a fine example of the work of Thomas Ellis Owen, the architect and developer responsible for much of Southsea's early-Victorian heart. Built in 1847 to an Italianate double-fronted design, the house features rendered elevations under a pitched, slated roof. The Main House is arranged over three floors and affords 3 bedrooms plus 4 reception rooms. The attached, also three-storied, Annex contains a further living room, en-suite bedroom and kitchen. Consent (recently lapsed) has been granted for the Annex to be enlarged by some 50% through a forward extension. Renewal of permission may be possible, interested parties being advised to make their own enquiries in this respect. 'Woodend' now presents a truly 1st class opportunity for a discerning buyer to adapt and refurbish a classic period residence, creating a superior and stylish home, ideal for a large or mixed-generational family. Full particulars are given as follow and early enquiry is invited:
