House is a beacon of excellence

UK ticket-holder wins £121.3 million EuroMillions jackpot

Have your say

A house for sale in Drayton is something of a beacon when it comes to its outlook. So perhaps its appropriate that it should be in Brecon Avenue, named after the Welsh town that gives its name to the high-rise Beacons area of the principality.

Set on the higher slopes of Portsdown Hill, the property is the last on the left hand side of the road and from the rear enjoys an outlook across the hill slopes as well as into the far distance across the higher reaches of Portsmouth Harbour.

But the house has many attractions apart from its views, not least its appeal as a family home thanks to the close proximity of good schools, local shopping, and access to the road and rail travel networks.

The 1930s bay-fronted house has been extended to increase the accommodation, now boasting three ample first floor bedrooms and another in the roofspace.

There is also a superb family bathroom with both a bath and large shower cubicle that’s complemented by the ground floor cloakroom / utility.

On the ground floor, the entrance hall extends back into the house with the integral garage on one side and the large drawing room, benefitting from the bay window, on the other.

Across the rear of the house are the large kitchen and dining room, both with doors from the hall and interconnecting via the conservatory which has patio doors to the terrace that opens on to the rear lawn.

At the front, the house benefits from a driveway and parking area in front of the garage with a lawn behind a low retaining wall to one side.

Guide price is £485,000 (EPC Band D). For more information, contact Town and Country Southern on (023) 9327 7288 or email
