A substantial and elegant period house set in a prime location close to the seafront and offering great potential and Solent views
25 Castle Road This substantial period house forms the southern portion of a pair of 3 storey houses and provides well-proportioned and light accommodation with high ceilings, large sash windows and good sea views from the principal rooms. Reputedly designed by John Nash and built in around 1827. Various period features remain and all bedrooms have en-suite facilities and whilst the house would benefit from some modernisation and redecoration, it offers great potential. The property has an easily maintained garden mainly comprising stone terraces and an adjacent space on Grove Road.
The property is superbly located within the Old Town, designated as a Conservation Area and a short walk from The Parade, world-renowned sailing facilities and Yacht Clubs, shops, numerous restaurants and the high-speed passenger ferry service to Southampton. Nearby Northwood Park, accessed also has tennis courts.
