The i newsletter cut through the noise

This striking and quite beautiful Victorian residence has been owned by the current inhabitants for the last 40 years and has unfortunately now in need of complete renovation, having slipped to a poor state of repair. The house sits on a remarkable corner plot measuring approximately 0.193 acres and could therefore be prime for alternative development subject to the relevant planning permissions and consents. Pearsons understand there are three trees within the boundary, which have a protected status and may therefore limit the size and scope of the new development but there is likely enough unencumbered space for a scheme. They have also been made aware by the vendor that the existing roof of the building has been condemned and will need replacement if the house was to be kept. Pearsons have arranged for a new survey of the roof and the results will be available at Pearsons' office on demand. A completely unique opportunity and plot rarely found in the city. Buyers will likely have differing ideals for the plot’s future and an early inspection is recommended.Pearsons, 023 9273 5558£799,950View full listing here

Hilsea, Portsmouth

The main building is a striking period property

A substantial detached property, currently ran as a residential care home with seven bedrooms, the majority of which have ensuite facilities plus common rooms, kitchens, office space and storage. The versatile building could be appropriate for a range of residential or commercial opportunities subject to relevant planning consents. The main building is a striking period property with two double bays to front with parapet tops and the internal accommodation offers high ceilings and period features including a grand stairway from the entrance hall. A series of single storey extensions at the rear increases the footprint of the building significantly.

Oyster Street, Old Portsmouth

This purpose built apartment enjoys a central Old Portsmouth location

With fantastic views over Portsmouth Cathedral and the Cathedral green from the front and with a view into the Camber and of the Spinnaker Tower of the rear, this purpose built apartment enjoys a central Old Portsmouth location. The apartment has undergone an extensive refurbishment by the current owners with only the original kitchen now left to be replaced after a change of circumstances has brought about the sale. Formally four bedrooms, a wall removed between two rooms now provides a much larger master bedroom with views towards the camber and with an open shower area separated from the room with a glass block wall. There are two further bedrooms, one currently being used as a study. The main living room enjoys views over the Cathedral and has ample space for a dining area. The contemporary three piece bathroom suite is in addition to a separate cloakroom. The kitchen leads to a part enclosed balcony with views into the Camber. With new heating and electrical systems, new carpets where there is not original parquet flooring and a fresh and tasteful decor this lovely apartment now only requires a new kitchen to finish a superb renovation.Pearsons, 023 9273 5558 £375,000View full listing here
