The Summer House is a handsome period home, situated in a prime position on the seafront, with panoramic Solent views and a south-facing garden.

Believed to have been built in the 1860s, this substantial semi-detached period home was significantly remodelled in 1998 with a rear extension in around 2006.

It retains an array of period features while providing characterful, light accommodation which makes the most of both the sea views to the front and the attractive rear garden.

The extensive refurbishment involved installation of new electric, plumbing and heating systems.

There is living accommodation and bedrooms on each floor with the more formal reception rooms located on the first floor, while the largely open-plan kitchen living room is on the ground floor opening to the gardens.

As well as parking for three cars, the house has unrivalled views across The Solent and direct access onto the seafront.
