Property description

Enjoying a highly sought-after location immediately off the seafront, this purpose-built two double bedroom second floor apartment benefits from private garage, lift service, gas central heating, secure entry, and replacement double-glazing. It is very keenly priced to reflect the need for modest refurbishment. Built around 1971, 'Chacksfield Court' is an attractive six-storey development comprising twenty apartments. Set well back from the road behind its own garden forecourt, the building stands on the east side of Craneswater Park close to the junction with St Helens Parade. This prime residential address is a level walk of just a few minutes from The Seafront, Canoe Lake and open beach, whilst also some three-quarters of a mile only from Southsea Town Centre (Palmerston Road Shopping Precinct) with its wide range of public amenities. Available to the open market with the further asset of no onward chain, Flat 8 is presented in reasonable order throughout and with a number of improvements made to its original specification. We think it fair to observe that it would reward an element of up-dating and attention to decor, now offering a desirable blank canvas opportunity for incoming owners to implement their own tastes and ideas.
