Whether you’re thinking of moving or altering and updating your present home, there are ideas and inspiration for you.

We feature interesting and unusual properties on the market in the Portsmouth area, plus offer suggestions on how you can make the most of your existing space.

In the fourth issue we show you around an Edwardian family home in Waterlooville, on the market at £1.195m.

There’s a fascinating look inside a £275,000, three-bed terrace in Copnor.

We also feature plush new apartments at the former Royal Hospital Haslar in Gosport and focus on Swanwick, its history and some of the properties for sale there.

We take a look at six homes in the Portsmouth area with at least four bedrooms and give you some top interior design tips for renovating a bathroom.

In the gardening section there’s advice on enhancing your outside space for winter with some seasonal plants.

Finally, if you’re looking for a new-build we put the focus on the Berewood Green development in Waterlooville.

We’re delighted that we have Fareham firm Giganet on board as sponsor of Home.

The company is at the forefront of high speed broadband installation that will transform our digital experience - from home working to gaming and streaming.

Giganet is connecting Portsmouth to the fastest broadband, with speeds up to 900Mb/s. Giganet’s Chief Customer Officer Rob Baynes says: ‘We’re so pleased to be connecting Pompey to full fibre broadband, which is so much faster and more reliable than what was available before.

‘The feedback we’ve had from local customers has been fantastic and we’re pleased to be the only provider offering one-month contracts and the best value in the city.’

Home also has the support of the Portsmouth Property Association. The PPA will be contributing a monthly column that offers expert insight into the local housing market.

We hope you enjoy reading Home - every Friday in The News or here at
