The property is located in the prestigious Old Portsmouth location directly overlooking Portsmouth’s historic inner harbour which is now used both as a leisure marina and a lively working port. It is within a short distance of all of the other facilities Old Portsmouth and Southsea has to offer. These including the busy harbour entrance with its eclectic mix of properties, eating and drinking establishments where it is possible to have a meal whilst watching bustling life go by. Portsmouth Grammar School, Mayville High School, St Johns College and the well renowned Portsmouth University are all close by. The area has excellent transport links to not only to the Isle of Wight but continental Europe via the ferries and a short walk to Portsmouth Harbour station for rail links to London and the rest of the country. The property is offered with a share of the freehold and dedicated off street secure gated parking, all discreetly hidden behind an unobtrusive entrance opposite the vibrant Hotwalls art galleries. It is believed to be one of the larger apartments in the city and therefore properties of this scale and location very rarely come to the market. Personal viewings via Bushnell Porter are for serious prospective purchasers only.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT UNDER THE NEW REGULATIONS ON MONEY LAUNDERING, WE NOW REQUIRE PROOF OF ID AND CURRENT ADDRESS BEFORE A SALE CAN BE AGREED AND SOLICITORS INSTRUCTED. We are obliged to inform you that we intend offering to prospective purchasers financial assistance, assurance, insurance and estate agency services together with any other special offers which may be available from time to time from which we may receive additional commission or introductory fees. The information in these particulars is intended to help you decide whether you wish to view this property and to avoid wasting your time in viewing unsuitable properties. Any photographs used are reproduced for general information and it must not be inferred that any item is included for sale with the property. We have tried to make sure that these particulars are accurate, but to a large extent we have to rely on what the seller tells us about the property. We do not check every single piece of information ourselves as the cost of doing so would be prohibitive and we do not wish to unnecessarily add to the cost of moving house. Once you find the property you want to buy, you will need to carry out more investigations into the property that is practical or reasonable for an estate agent to do when preparing sales particulars. For example, we have not carried out any kind of survey of the property to look for structural defects and would advise any homebuyer to obtain a surveyors report before exchanging contracts. If you do not have your own surveyor, we would be pleased to recommend one. We have not checked whether any equipment in the property (such as central heating) is in working order and would advise homebuyers to check this. You should also instruct a solicitor to investigate all legal matters relating to the property (e.g. title, planning permission etc) as these are specialist matters in which estate agents are not qualified. Your solicitor will also agree with the seller what items (e.g. carpets, curtains etc) will be included in the sale. All details, descriptions, measurements, photographs and anything produced by Bushnell Porter with regard to the marketing of the property remains their copyright at all times and must not be reproduced, copied or shared in any way shape or form.
These particulars are believed to be correct but their accuracy is not guaranteed, nor do they constitute an offer or contract.
