Property description

A rare and hugely desirable blank canvas opportunity enjoying a highly sought-after cul-de-sac location on the southern slope of Portsdown Hill - set in generous gardens with off-street parking, this four bedroom semi-detached family house is available to the open market for the first time in 60 years; now requiring general modernisation, it is keenly priced and offers considerable potential for incoming owners to create a home of quality and distinction. Within the much-favoured "Welsh Avenues" enclave, tree-lined Brecon Avenue lies to the north of the main Havant Road, approached via Penarth Avenue. This exceptionally convenient, yet tucked away residential address is some three-quarters of a mile only from Cosham Town Centre and convenient to a wide range of public amenities. Dating from around 1930, the house itself features brick and rendered elevations under a tiled main roof, the double-fronted facade incorporating recessed porch flanked by bay windows. It stands well back from the road behind a planted forecourt which affords a double-length car hardstand, whilst to the rear is a delightful garden, some 68ft in length, with sunny, westerly aspect. Available with the further asset of no onward chain, full particulars of this appealing property are given as follows and early enquiry is urged:
