Fry & Kent has pleasure in marketing for sale this UNIQUE detached property located in the heart of Old Portsmouth adjacent to the Round Tower and Hot Walls whilst enjoying fine PANORAMIC views across the harbour entrance, The Solent and Isle of Wight beyond. The Cathedral City of Old Portsmouth is steeped in history and within this small conservation area lays Spice Island, a small peninsular between Portsmouth harbour and the fishing port of Camber Dock. There are a number of bars, restaurants and cafes as well as art studios and the Millennium Walk which leads to the fashionable marina development of Gunwharf Quays plus the Historic Dockyard, main line railway station to London (Waterloo) and ferry services to the Isle of Wight. An ICONIC stone arch over the entrance welcomes you to Capstan House which once gave way to the studios of W.H. Whyllie, the renowned marine artist and although the original building was destroyed in WW2, the unique Latitude & Longitude inscription remained intact and recently refurbished by the present owner. Currently arranged as two maisonettes under separate titles and leases, Capstan House has plans for a relatively straightforward CONVERSION into a single dwelling subject to the normal permissions. Approaching 3,500 sq. ft (325 sq.) in total over four floors, the VERSITILE layout provides up to five bedrooms with four benefiting from en-suite bath and shower rooms. On the first floor there is an impressive open plan living room with access onto a full width balcony enjoying uninterrupted SOUTH WESTERLY views over the harbour entrance. On the same floor you will find a fitted kitchen, utility room, cloakroom and conservatory which leads onto a large ROOF TERRACE, perfect for entertaining or Al Fresco dining. With further bedrooms on the third floor, the top floor consists of a second and very IMPRESSIVE open plan living room and fitted kitchen off which there are three balconies with far reaching views of the harbour, the Solent and Isle of Wight. Externally, a large garage can be approached from Broad street together with a large workshop, two outside storerooms, a small courtyard and two adjoining parking bays off Tower Street. Without doubt, Capstan House offers a unique opportunity to purchase a detached residence located in an ENVIABLE setting with outstanding views and only a few yards of the foreshore. Please inspect the floor plan and photos for further details.
