This impressive early Georgian Grade I Listed home, spanning 5000 square feet, commands a prominent position overlooking the former Officers Tennis Lawns, exuding the peace of its historic setting occasionally interrupted by the Dockyard clock chimes. Dating back to 1727, this Terrace of 12 properties was originally built by the Admiralty for the Dockyard's principal Officers. Recent owners have updated the property while preserving its character.

Internally, the residence is generously appointed over four floors with 6 bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms, and 4 reception rooms. The property retains striking evidence of its past, including stunning fireplaces, exposed timber floors, sash windows, and wood paneling.

A formal entrance leads to the lower ground floor with a reception room and cinema/music room with a wine cellar. Two staircases rise to the raised ground floor. A front sitting room offers views of the Dockyard Clock Tower, while the dining room overlooks the internal courtyard. The kitchen-breakfast room with an exposed brick floor is complemented by a separate boot room, cloakroom, and an external utility room.

A central staircase floods the house with light via a grand sash window. An internal staircase leads to a split-level first floor, offering access to a rear wing bedroom, study, and cloakroom. The other side features a principal bedroom with adjoining boutique hotel-style bathroom, another double bedroom currently arranged as a gym and a luxurious shower room. The second floor includes three more double bedrooms and a generously sized shower room.

An additional rear entrance provides access to parking and a garage. The property boasts a hidden 150-foot walled garden at the rear, ripe for transformation into a magnificent entertaining area.

Prepare to be bowled over by this unique home and we look forward to accompanying you on a tour.
