A truly exceptional RETIREMENT opportunity: enjoying a prime front-line SEAFRONT position, this VERY SPACIOUS TWO BEDROOM 6th FLOOR APARTMENT commands quite breathtaking and delightful PANORAMIC VIEWS of The Solent, Harbour approaches, and The Isle of Wight. Constructed in 1987 by the specialist national company McCarthy Stone, "Homeheights" is a superior high-rise development tailored specifically to the needs of retired persons - the minimum age for occupancy being 60 years, or 55 and 60 in the case of a couple. The building stands in a prominent position directly opposite The Common, close to the junction of Clarence Parade with Osborne Road, and a level walk of some 350 yards only from Southsea Town Centre (Palmerston Road Shopping Precinct). Amenities, both for the apartment and the building as a whole, are wide-ranging, to include: twin lifts, house manager, residents'' lounge, guest suite, games rooms, observation room and terrace, laundry, electric heating, secure entry, and communal grounds with non-allocated parking. An example of the building''s premier "Mountbatten" apartments (just one per floor), Flat 49 offers significantly more generous living space than is the norm (both among Homeheights and its peers), including: a 20ft Living Room, 18ft Principal Bedroom, and a separate Study which has the potential to be incorporated into the adjacent kitchen to provide a Breakfast/Dining Area.

The outlook is outstanding, an array of no less than 11 windows granting wonderful panoramic views to the east, west & south, taking in The Ladies Mile and Southsea Common, approaches to Portsmouth Harbour, Gilkicker Point, The Solent, and The Isle of Wight. The interior would now reward refurbishment, presenting a blank canvas for a buyer to implement their own tastes and ideas, and to create a desirable home with much to commend it.
