38 Nightingale Road, Southsea, Hampshire, PO5 3JN
Sold £497,999

The mouth of Nightingale Road fronts the Queens Hotel, the famous Southsea landmark which in turn fronts the common with the beach and seafront beyond. This five-storey building is offered as something of a rarity in this day and age, being the freehold of the whole building with most of the other similar buildings in the street having been converted into multiple dwellings in recent years.

It is considered that the building may offer scope and potential for a number of future uses, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable, including for conversion into apartments or perhaps for use as a splendid single family dwelling. The lower ground floor is at present arranged as a two-bedroom flat.
