Lot 105


Solent House, Harbour Road, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 1BG
Withdrawn After

Solent House comprises the majority of the former Clarence Square School, a short distance from the boatyards and marinas at Portsmouth Harbour, Gosport town centre and the ferry pontoon with its links to Portsmouth.

This part of Gosport has recently been transformed with several attractive residential developments in the immediate area, including an adjacent block of retirement flats which is under construction.

The building, extending close to 460 sq.m. (5,000 sq.ft.), has previously been in use to provide a mix of retail and office accommodation, and is considered ideal for continued use in this vein.

Alternatively, prospective bidders may wish to consider other uses, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable. Interested applicants are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority, the Gosport Borough Council. Tel: 023 9258 4242. Website: gosport.gov.uk.


The ground and first floors are at present divided to provide a range of office suites and retail space with supporting staff facilities, including cloakrooms.

Energy Performance Certificate

The unit has an EPC rating of 134 (Band F).
