Prospect Cottage Prospect Cottage is Listed, Grade II and this historic home provides hugely characterful accommodation over three storeys, all of which benefit from sea views. The property is complemented by a mature rear garden in addition to a large, first floor balcony, which provides a great entertaining space and vantage point with panoramic views of the Hampshire Coast and harbour entrance. There are a host of period features, ranging from fireplaces to the elegant staircase. Large sash windows combine with a series of French doors to the rear elevation and provide light accommodation which makes the most of the views to the rear.

The house would benefit from some modernisation but provides a rare opportunity to acquire a landmark property within this quiet, sought-after part of the town, also designated a Conservation Area. It’s situated in an elevated position with Northwood Park and its tennis courts only a short walk away, as are the principal yacht clubs and other amenities of the town including a good range of restaurants and shops. The high speed Red Jet foot passenger ferry service provides regular sailings to Southampton with onward connections to rail services.

Offered as a separate lot is a single garage off Bars Hill with storage above.
