WATERSIDE - We are delighted to be able to offer this stunning Edwardian residence to the market for the first time since 1975. The property is believed to originate from 1910 and we understand was built by a local architect for himself. Little surprise then that it is perfectly orientated to capture the widest
possible view of The Solent. The house boasts exceptional proportions and tall ceilings throughout. The sense of space and scale is immediately evident upon entering the elegant
entrance hall either side of which are the two principal reception rooms. The formal drawing room features a box bay window offering sea views and an attractive working fireplace with open fire creating a focal point for the room whilst the
sitting room also benefits from a bow bay window with sea views and shelving either side of the chimney breast. To the rear of the house there is an impressive formal dining room which gives access on to the generous kitchen equipped with wooden units and integrated appliances. The kitchen is complimented by a useful utility area and also gives access to the conservatory from where one gets wonderful views over the fabulous rear garden. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation and an internal door gives access to the 26ft garage with wine cellar/store. On the first floor there are two substantial bedrooms to the front of the house which mirror the proportions of the principal reception rooms below and both
offer the most outstanding elevated water views and a good range of built in storage. There are two further bedrooms on this level and two separate bathrooms. On the top floor there are three further generous bedrooms which could serve a variety
of different purposes such as teenage den area, studio, or study depending on the buyer’s specific needs. There is also a separate w/c on this level.
This property is featured by our Waterside department.
The property occupies an outstanding and prominent position on Cliff Road with steps opposite the property leading down to Hill Head beach. Hill Head itself is an extremely desirable
location set on The Solent with its world renowned sailing facilities. The hamlet boasts a public house, tea room, picturesque harbour, sailing club and is home to Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve, thus ensuring its appeal to sailing enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Day to day shopping facilities can be found nearby in the historic village of Titchfield (3.2 miles) and Stubbington (1.5 miles). For commuters the (A27/M27/M3) provides access for journeys further afield, whilst mainline railway links to London are available from Fareham and Southampton Parkway Stations, the latter being
adjacent to Southampton International Airport which offers domestic and international flights. The area is also well served for schools with Meon Cross, Boundary Oak, West Hill Park, Portsmouth Grammar School and King Edward VI School.
The garden is a particular feature of this property, the house is situated towards the front of its 0.45 acre plot giving a generous rear garden which is principally laid to lawn with well stocked curved borders that provide interest and colour throughout the seasons. Beyond the lawn area is a lovely secluded orchard area planted with a variety of fruit trees. The garden is edged all round
