There’s a real fishing village feel about the Camber Dock in Portsmouth – rigging clinking against masts in the sailing club, boats bringing their catch to the fish market, and pubs close by.

Yet this is all within the heart of a bustling city, bringing the best of both worlds to those who live a cosmopolitan lifestyle but wishing they could escape it in their leisure time.

With a home in Camber Dock there’s no need to rush away for the weekend to escape the bustle although the area is well connected by road and rail links for those unavoidable times when there’s a need to be somewhere else, either in the UK or across the sea.

Fresh on the market is the aptly-named Camber View in Captains Row, Old Portsmouth, a three-storey modern townhouse with the perfect window on the older part of Portsmouth.

It makes the most of its setting by having its drawing room, which incorporates separate living and seating areas, the latter with outstanding views across the Camber Dock towards the Spinnaker Tower and Portsmouth Harbour.

To the side is a feature bay window overlooking the central square, communal gardens, Camber Dock, and Millennium Walkway to Old Portsmouth.

To cap it all, the house has a curved roof terrace on the top floor that takes in views of the sea defences from the Napoleonic era (sadly for the Emperor he never got to see this delightful place) with the Isle of Wight in the distance.

The house has an integral garage, additional parking, and a patio area which wraps around the house, enclosed by trellis, and leading to the communal square for the private use of residents.

There is ready access to road and rail links plus ferries to the Isle of Wight and the Continent.

Guide price is £550,000.
