This exceptional Southsea property for sale really is one of a kind, bringing modern luxury living to a historic building


Situated in the perfect location, this exceptional property is less than a 5 minute walk across the common to the beach, a 15 minute walk to Gunwharf Quays (a great place to watch the yachts pull into harbour from one of the many restaurants and bars) and with good transport links to London. The new state of the art Ravelin Sports Centre with pool, climbing wall and ski simulator opens this autumn and is just a five minute walk from the house.

Castle Road is one of the most sought after streets in Southsea having a rich history and real sense of community, with three antique shops to while away an hour or two and the famous Pie & Vinyl Cafe. In the middle of this eclectic street you will find Post Office House, a pretty green property with flower filled wrought iron window boxes designed by Peter Clutterbuck. The quiet facia belies the surprisingly large house and exotic garden.

The owners bought the property as the former post office and have transformed it back to a beautiful residence discovering and retaining many period features. The property has been refurbished to a high standard from top to bottom and provides a flexible approach to living over three floors.

The main open plan living room is situated on the ground floor and is 11 meters long by 5 meters wide with light that floods in through the bifold garden doors, with beautiful parquet oak floors and a traditional wood burner. The kitchen adjoins this room and looks directly onto the garden, perfect for entertaining.

Currently the accommodation comprises three bedrooms that are all generous doubles with a large walk-in wardrobe off the master bedroom and large bathrooms on both the second and third floors.

On the third floor there is access to a roof terrace with views of the Spinnaker Tower, Southsea common and seafront, it provides the perfect sun trap to sit and watch the world go by with a Gin & Tonic in hand. Adjoining this room is a second lounge area that offers the flexibility to be used as a fourth bedroom or a master suite.

The incredible walled garden (15 meters by 5 meters) has a distinct Mediterranean feel, looks stunning all year round with little maintenance and is completely private and secure, safe for children and pets; it is the perfect peaceful escape from the world.

“We have loved living here, Post Office House is a wonderful home and the location is ideal for walking the dogs on the expanse of common or carrying our paddleboards down to the beach at high tide”. Amanda & David
