Rose Villa in Waverley Road is a four bedroom detached house with a prominent gabled frontage and tall chimneys.

Colin Shairp of Fine and Country Southern Hampshire said: ‘This property is unique in many ways with ornate ceiling cornices, stripped and stained floors, architraves, ceiling roses and fireplaces, archways and a staircase to balustrade.

‘Soon this will be even more of a standout home if the next owners continue with the construction of a north side extension which will create another family room, hallway, office and two more en-suite bedrooms, as well as a roof terrace”.

The foundations for the extension are already in place, so there is no rush to start keeping the planning permission up to date.

In its current format, the house offers a choice of three or four bedrooms depending on whether or not one is used as an office.

Colin added: ‘It’s already a very attractive home, but some buyers wanting a wider family base might well appreciate the opportunity to build the extension while adding features that will enhance their own particular ideas.

‘It’s rare to find a period property with enough space for such an ambitious project, but Rose Villa has enough land to achieve this whilst retaining off road parking and the rear garden so amenities are not lost.

“Its location is close to the seafront as well as schools and the inspiring mix of local businesses, especially those offering the finer things in life such as restaurants and culture. Rose Villa is a bud waiting to bloom in the lives of its next owners.

Guide price is £800,000 (EPC Band E).
