Were delighted to be able to add this beautifully presented two-bedroom, mid-terrace property within a short distance of the centre of Portsmouth to our portfolio along the south coast. With neutral decor throughout, the property presents few challenges for a new owner.
Alver Road is just a little north-east of the city centre but still within an approximate 15-20 minute walk from the main shopping precincts, however, buses run regularly along neighbouring Fratton Road. Fratton Community Centre is just around the corner as well as a post office, The Trafalgar Arms pub, The Carnegie Library, a pharmacy, a couple of convenience stores, a Chinese takeaway and fish and chip shop. An Asda superstore is just a little further while parents with young children may like to know the Bunny Warren Pre-School Nursery is close by. The Portsmouth Academy is also within a short distance, while Southsea Beach, Fratton Park – home to Portsmouth FC, Fratton Railway Station and ferries to the continent are a short drive away.
The property fronts onto Alver Road but there is a well maintained, enclosed garden to the rear. A patio that is accessed through French doors from the kitchen leads to a lawn surrounded by flower beds. A stepping-stone path leads across the grass to the larger-than-average detached single garage equipped with light, power, shelving space and a handy work bench.
The house is equipped with double glazing with warmth and hot water provided mainly by a programmable gas-fired central heating system with thermostatically-controlled valves fitted to all radiators. The front door opens immediately into the lounge area featuring stripped wood floors, a fireplace with living gas flame fire and open stairs with rails and a bannister rising to the first floor. An internal door then leads into the open-plan kitchen/diner. The dining room space boasts two in-built storage cupboards and leads on to the modern fitted kitchen with a range of wall and base units with wood work surfaces complemented by pine storage shelves and white splashback tiles. A modern electric hob and oven with extractor over, a stainless steel sink with drainer and space for a fridge and dishwasher are incorporated into the galley-style design. A separate utility room offers additional space for a washing machine and tumble drier and leads to a downstairs WC with pedestal wash hand basin. The far end of the kitchen also incorporates a seating area beneath an opaque roof, double French doors open onto the rear garden. The stairs to the first floor lead to one double bedroom and a good sized single both with built-in wardrobes as well as the modern part-tiled house bathroom, equipped with a matching low level WC, wash hand basin set within a vanity unit and a bath with shower over, there is also a chrome heated towel rail.
In our opinion this is a home best suited to a couple working in the city. The second bedroom could easily be adapted as a nursery with the pleasant rear garden offering space and security for a small child and with suitable amenities conveniently located nearby. However, the property may also appeal to a buy-to-let investor. Whichever, wed thoroughly recommend a viewing to appreciate both the high standard of the accommodation on offer and the handy location.
