Flat, Bath Square
SUMMARY DESCRIPTION Sarah Oliver @ NEXA is proud to welcome this cosy and quaint apartment on the cobbled streets of Bath Square, Old Portsmouth which is one of the most desirable addresses on the Portsea Island. Steeped in history, this area of Portsmouth dates back over 200 years and ‘Spice Island’ as it’s now known got it’s name from being the point spice merchants and their goods entered England. Many of Portsmouth’s signature landmarks are within a few hundred yards of the property including the Round Tower, Statue of Trafalgar and The Hot Walls which have been transformed in the last few years into creative studios and waterfront dining space in ‘The Canteen’. The property itself is just a matter of steps from Spice Island and the stunning views it provides, which are best spent whilst enjoying a drink or coffee from the pubs and taverns in Old Portsmouth.
The apartment comprises two bedrooms, a lounge with bay window and seat with views of the Solent, shower room, kitchen and shared roof terrace. It is a first floor property, access via one flight of stairs in the communal hallway, with just a garage under the apartment itself. The vendor is only selling her beloved apartment due to needing a bigger property within the same area, and therefore she would consider a part-exchange of a 3 or 4 bedroom property should you need to sell your home.
INTERNAL WALK-THROUGH Entering via the front door, you arrive in the entrance hallway. This has doors to all rooms.
The lounge is at the front of the property and has tonnes of character with the exposed brick wall and bay window, which has been turned into a wonderful place to sit with a book or coffee and watch the world go by. The views of the mouth of the harbour mean you get a first class seat to watch the Navy ships leaving or returning, plus all of the other marine traffic. There is a further window to the side elevation, TV and telephone points and a wall-mounted radiator.
The two bedrooms are next off the hallway. Both have a double glazed window to the side elevation. Both rooms could fit double beds in, however one is more comfortable as a study or space for a pull-out day bed.
The kitchen overlooks the rear of the property and is fitted with a range of wall and base units with work surfaces and inset sink over, plus tiled splashbacks. There is a freestanding fridge freezer in the pantry/larder alcove and further space for freestanding appliances.
The shower room has a double walk-in shower and has tiled walls and floor. There is a low-level flush WC and vanity sink.
EXTERNALLY The roof terrace, which is accessed via the stairs in the communal hallway has breath-taking panoramic views of the Solent, Old Portsmouth shoreline and rest of the City. It is an ideal spot to sit out with a coffee.
