It may have already been posted but Countrywide Property Auctions (.co.uk) have some reasonable looking period flats in Southsea up soon with an estimate of £40-45k. I don't know the area too well (aside a few gigs at the Pyramids, just round the corner) but these are pretty close to the sea and look nice from the outside shots. I think there are about 4 flats in the same house some maybe a BTLetter gone down the pan?

They are lots of Bargains now in Southsea, the auctions are showing some real discounts from peak too!

As for Alverstoke (Gosport), it's no good if you work outside the area. Traffic is terrible at that time of day... It takes me 20mins to get out of Portsmouth in the mornings!

What does everyone think of the Anchorage Park estate?

Hello Jason,

I've got a feeling the Anchorage Park estate is built on a landfill site so that would probably put me off. Not heard of any problems there in terms of reputation/residents though and think it probably falls into the catchment area for ALN school if that was one of your priorities.

Hi Completelyspent,

No children, so the ALN school is not an issue. What attracts me is that I like newer/modern type properties and the fact that it's easy to get out of the city while still being in Portsmouth.

I've heard of the land-fill, and know it was once an airport. But I can't find any problems with it anywhere, I even emailed a surveyor who lives there and he said there was no problem (although he did live there).

The height compared to sea level causes concern (3meters above record high tide), but then again if that's an issue then all of Portsmouth will be wiped out.

I don't know of any problems-it certainly doesn't have a reputation in terms of area and even though it may not be a selling point for you, the good catchment area will make it re-saleable.

If you are looking for newer properties then obviously you will be limited for choice in Portsmouth/Southsea-you could try looking a little further out in the surrounding areas.

What was the Casino and Time nightclub, plot up for sale. Looks like development aborted?

£4M.

I believe Harry Redknapp has a stake here - land opposite the Pier.

It has been up for sale a long time. Price has dropped from £6m; not sure how much Harry paid for it. Hope they eventually do something nice there as it is a bit of a dump where the pier is despite being nice 50m either side.
