An elegant Victorian town house, you will find it in a prominent position within the conservation area of the highly regarded High Street at Fareham.

The building is currently run as a successful bed and breakfast and, subject to planning permission, could easily be converted back to a stunning family home.

The house possesses enormous character in the form of high ceilings, sash windows and a host of marble fireplaces.

On the ground floor is a grand reception hall, drawing room, dining room, fitted kitchen, study/office, sitting room, two shower rooms and one bathroom.

On the first floor there is a large split-level gallery landing giving access to six bedrooms each with its own en-suite facilities.

And on the top floor, there is a self-contained apartment which can also be accessed by its own entrance/staircase. The apartment includes two double bedrooms, lounge/diner, kitchen and bathroom.

There is also a substantial cellar providing excellent storage and potential for further development, subject to planning permission.

Outside is an attractive formal rear garden which leads on to an extensive 14-space car park.

High Street, Fareham, was described by Pevsner’s The Buildings of England – Hampshire as ‘one of the best country town streets in the south of England’ which ‘narrows, climbs and curves gracefully out of sight’.

The High Street was designated a conservation area in 1969 and is now a highly desirable location within the town centre. A wide variety of shops, restaurants and amenities are within a short walk while the motorway at junction 11 and the mainline railway station are also easily accessible.

The popular primary school at Harrison Road is curriculum linked to Cams Hill Secondary School.

The property is on the market for £999,500. For more information contact Pearsons.
