SAILORS drop anchor off-shore, as you might expect, but landlubber families can drop anchor close to the coastline and enjoy the benefits without bobbing about in a storm.
Of course, a safe anchorage is always best and there can hardly be a safer one at the moment for a family seeking a good value home than a four bedroom detached house at Holdenby Court, Anchorage Park, Portsmouth, that comes complete with a large secure parking area behind double gates.
The property seems to present the best of all worlds.
It’s close to the shore, local shopping amenities and bus routes, and the roads network for those who want to travel further afield.
There are sailing clubs nearby, too, for those who fancy spending at least part of their time afloat.
The house has two well proportioned reception rooms topped up by a sun lounge/conservatory where you can top up on the sun’s rays while looking out across the attractive rear garden with its lawns and shrubs.
Many families tend to gravitate towards the kitchen and in this case the stylish and well equipped kitchen will be a joy for an enthusiastic chef.
There’s also a breakfast bar area for those who want to pause and even a slimline wine cooler for when it’s time to relax.
There are four bedrooms, the master with an en-suite shower room to complement the family bathroom, which has both a bath and a shower built into a recessed arch.
Two of the bedrooms have views across the Port Creek and Basin towards Portsdown Hill and the South Downs National Park and there’s a footpath from the front of the house to the Port Creek. The driveway has a large parking area as well as access to a detached double garage block.
Guide price is £350,000.
