Woodfield Avenue, Farlington

Whether you are buying or selling a property, it pays to talk to an estate agent with a good knowledge of the area you prefer.

And when it comes to Woodfield Avenue in Farlington, Colin Shairp, of Town and Country Southern estate agents, is on top of the topic – just as the road itself is on top of the area because it sits just under the crown of Portsdown Hill.

Having sold three properties in the Avenue during 2017, Colin is kicking off the 2018 season with another home there, this time a well-presented four-bedroom property commanding fine views across the city of Portsmouth and Langstone Harbour to the front and onto the grassy hill slopes at the rear.With its double height tile-hung gable at the front, the house has real kerb appeal from the outset.But step through the front porch into the entrance hall and you’ll be entranced by what you find.Traditional it may appear from the outside but the interior has benefitted from a modern makeover that has created a huge kitchen / dining room at the rear with triple skylights helping flood it with natural light and bi-fold doors across the rear on to a terrace surrounded by retaining walls. But the house has not been entirely sacrificed to the modern desire for open plan living because the separate sitting room has been retained at the front to give a quiet area behind that front bay – now re-glazed but with the curved profile of the original suntrap windows.

The first floor is home to three very well- proportioned bedrooms, while the family bathroom has both a bath and a shaped walk-in shower area.The central stairwell continues to the master suite on the second floor, arranged to really exploit the views while still having good wardrobe space and access to eaves storage.

The house is set back behind hardstanding for several cars while a long driveway leads to the garage at the rear, positioned alongside the terrace.Steps beside the garage rise to two areas of lawn at slightly different levels with each featuring shrub borders and evergreens. The garden backs on to grazing land on the hill slopes.
