4 Bedroom Town House For Sale in Old Portsmouth, Hampshire

4 2

In 1842, according to the ‘Charpentier’ guide to Portsmouth this section of High Street comprised three houses and a piece of waste ground. Of the three properties, Bellerophon, No 130 has been completely rebuilt since that time, No. 131 has survived largely intact and No. 132, is intact but later incorporated the waste ground as 132½ (132a, b and c in 2011), also known as Cambridge House. All of the properties would have been primarily residential accommodation throughout their existences but also at times offices for professional services such as solicitors and dentists. No 131 has a strong resemblance to the No. 130 shown in the Charpentier drawings fo that time, the evidence we have uncovered suggests that this is the building that stood here in 1860. The whole, or part, of the facade may have been rebuilt at some stage, confirmation for the proposal that the render is a late addition comes from the pillars either side of the door.

PROPERTY SUMMARY In 1842, according to the 'Charpentier' guide to Portsmouth this section of High Street comprised three houses and a piece of waste ground. Of the three properties, Bellerophon, No 130 has been completely rebuilt since that time, No. 131 has survived largely intact and No. 132, is intact but later incorporated the waste ground as 132½ (132a, b and c in 2011), also known as Cambridge House. All of the properties would have been primarily residential accommodation throughout their existences but also at times offices for professional services such as solicitors and dentists. No 131 has a strong resemblance to the No. 130 shown in the Charpentier drawings fo that time, the evidence we have uncovered suggests that this is the building that stood here in 1860. The whole, or part, of the facade may have been rebuilt at some stage, confirmation for the proposal that the render is a late addition comes from the pillars either side of the door which are partially buried in the render whereas one might assume they originally stood proud of the brick face. Today, and after many improvements the property offers 2671 sq ft of living space living space arranged over five floors including a two room basement and two loft rooms. On the reception level is a long hallway running to the rear of the property with a sitting room, cloakroom, dining room, kitchen and orangery, on the first floor is the drawing room / bedroom with twin windows to the front, a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a separate utility room / shower room, on the second floor are two further double bedrooms and shower room. To the rear of the property is an enclosed courtyard with flagstones and decking.
The property is deceptive with light and spacious rooms, some exposed brick fireplaces, wooden panelling and cast iron fire surrounds, this property represents a rare opportunity to purchase a unique and historic Grade II Listed townhouse which dates back to at least the late 18th century. The house is named after Bellerophon a hero in Greek mythology, one of the ships in the line of the Battle of Trafalgar and the ship aboard which Napoleon Bonaparte surrendered. It sits within walking distance of the historic maritime harbour of Old Portsmouth an area best described as a 'village within a City' with the Sailing Club, Camber Dock, many restaurants and public houses as well as the fortified Napoleonic sea defences, the highly regarded schools including The Portsmouth Grammar School and the Portsmouth High School are both nearby, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
