Property Description

PROPERTY SUMMARY \'Gainsborough House\' is a prime example of a period property which retains many of its character features yet has been sensitively restored by the current owners over the last ten years. The preserving of the internal wooden panelling, sash style windows and replacement of feature fire surrounds form part of the character of this Grade II Listed four storey town house. The painted façade leads to a very traditional layout with central wood panelled staircase rising to all floors. The accommodation comprises; living room, kitchen / breakfast room and cloakroom on the ground floor with two bedrooms on the first floor and a further bedroom and feature bathroom on the top floor. The lower ground floor has been converted to form an entertainment room incorporating bar, breakfast room, utility and shower rooms. Set in the heart of the oldest conservation area of Old Portsmouth, with its well-proportioned rooms the house is within easy access of local amenities including the Napoleonic sea defences, the harbour entrance, Camber Dock and a variety of public houses and restaurants. The nationally acclaimed Portsmouth Grammar School is nearby as well as commutable links from Portsmouth Harbour railway station to London Waterloo (in approximately 1½ hours), the Victorian seafront of Southsea and the Continental Ferry Port are all within easy reach. Having a courtyard style rear garden with roof top terrace and garage as well as no forward chain, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
