Description

Commanding truly breathtaking PANORAMIC VIEWS and boasting a PRIME SEAFRONT POSITION, this unique and spacious 3 DOUBLE BEDROOM UPPER DUPLEX CHARACTER APARTMENT also offers the considerable benefits of a LARGE SINGLE GARAGE and a GENEROUS PRIVATE GARDEN. It is now IN NEED OF GENERAL MODERNISATION and holds considerable potential.Forming part of the historic Seafront Conservation Area, and standing directly opposite The Common, Clarence Parade runs between Osborne Road (The Queens Hotel) and Lennox Road South, No. 18 being positioned a short distance from the junction with Palmerston Road - a level walk of just a few minutes from Southsea Town Centre and within comfortable reach of a wide range of public amenities including the many attractions of maritime Old Portsmouth. The apartment itself is one of just two units within an impressive and attractive four-storey mid-Victorian residence having rendered facade under a slate roof. Spread over the building''s 1st and 2nd floors (with intermediate half landings), the apartment provides well-proportioned and generous living space (with further scope to expand into the loft area, subject to consent) with its principal rooms (the Study also having window to the sea) enjoying fascinating, ever-changing, panoramic views encompassing The Ladies Mile and Common, the approaches to Portsmouth Harbour, and The Solent and Isle of Wight beyond.

The large garage is a valuable asset as is the rarely encountered private rear garden which extends to over 30ft. As stated, the apartment will now reward a comprehensive programme of refurbishment, presenting itself as a project with enormous potential for an incoming owner to be free with their own tastes and ideas. Its convenience of location, wonderful outlook, expansive accommodation, garaging and garden all contribute to an opportunity which will appeal to the discerning buyer seeking a home of genuine distinction and quality.
