Built around the turn of the 1920s into the 1930s, the house boasts the architectural features of the period that people love so much; the double height, tile hung bay at the front, the curved brick arch over the recessed front door, and even a decorative low garden wall at the front.

Set beside a tree-lined no-through-road, the house offers a quiet base for a family while the west-facing rear garden makes a great play or planting space, overlooked by a conservatory that’s a more modern addition and complete with a summer house to be enjoyed on warmer days.

Inside, the house has been carefully updated to preserve many original features, such as the arched brick open fireplace in the sitting room, which also benefits from the space-enhancing bay window and, like the dining room behind, has coved ceilings and picture rails.

Glazed doors in the dining room open into the conservatory, which also has another entrance via the kitchen, fitted with white units and with its original larder in the corner. The under-stairs space houses a cloakroom.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of them doubles with fitted wardrobes, including the master which also takes advantage of that front bay for extra space and light. The family bathroom has a bath and large shower cubicle.

Neighbouring properties have been extended into the roof space and should the new owners of this property wish to do the same, subject to necessary consents, the layout of the landing could accommodate additional stairs.

The house is a short distance from Cosham High Street shopping area, good schools, and major routes.
