Property description

Prime location just off the seafront for this spacious, purpose-built three bedroom 3rd floor apartment benefitting from private garage, sun balcony, lift service, secure entry, communal central heating, and attractive outlook. One of Southsea's most prestigious and sought-after residential addresses, Craneswater Park is situated directly off St Helens Parade, moments only from The Seafront and open beach, and a level walk of only 3/4 mile from the Town Centre (Palmerston Road Shopping Precinct). This exceptionally convenient position places a wide range of public amenities within comfortable reach. Built in 1972, 'Charminster' is a superior and stylish six-storey development standing well back from the road behind its own lawned and tree-planted garden forecourt. Within the building's south wing, and enjoying sight of The Canoe Lake and Solent beyond from its generous balcony, Flat 8 itself is available now to the open market with the further asset of no onward chain. The apartment has been the subject of up-grading over past years, is presented in fair order, but would reward modest further refurbishment, offering now a blank canvas opportunity with considerable scope to create a quality home having much to commend it to discerning buyers.
