Impressive Grade II listed five storey four bedroom townhouse and one bedroom self contained apartment with rich Georgian history on sale for £800,000 in Southsea
Jubilee House has a lot to offer with 2577 square feet of living space spread over five floors, the property is unique in many ways with an interesting history dating back to its beginnings in 1809.
The £800,000 property has been used as a bed and breakfast, public house and restaurant for centuries, but now forms a stunning home with an immense amount of character created by the current owners.
Features include an industrial warehouse-style bathroom as well as two en-suite bathrooms, a walk-in closet, four bedrooms, two living rooms with three-way floor-to-ceiling windows and a fitted kitchen/breakfast room.
The property has floor coverings throughout, gas central heating and plans to build a one and a half storey extension including a garage and seating area for alfresco dining.
Attached to the main house is a fully independent one bedroom apartment in the basement with living room, fitted kitchen, bedroom and shower room. The apartment has its own central heating system and is an excellent opportunity for versatile living or a home with income potential.
The property is located in one of Southsea’s oldest conservation areas, yet with easy access to the Victorian promenade, recreation grounds, historic harbor entrance, local shops, restaurants and public houses .
This property is not to be missed with many character features, the central Georgian staircase rising to all floors as well as a rooftop balcony with open views.
“It’s a fascinating house with so much to recommend,” said Colin Shairp, of Fine and Country Southern Hampshire.
“The current owners even had the foresight to secure planning permission for an extension that included a garage and al fresco dining seating area. Obtaining the classified building permit is not always easy and future owners may appreciate that the hard work is done for them.
‘This 1805 Georgian house is ideally located in one of the best and most historic parts of Southsea, away from the Victorian enclave that later developed. It is literally meters from the wide open seafront green spaces that stretch from the Royal Garrison Church and ancient defensive walls to Southsea Castle. Henry VIII knew it well – maybe it’s time you knew it too.
The indicative price is £800,000. For more information contact Fine and Country Southern Hampshire on 023 93 277 277 or email [email protected]
