Portsmouth has just been named the second best place to live and with properties like this for sale, it's not hard to see why.

Coming second to just London, Portsmouth has been highlighted as one of the best places to live by the website Nomad Nation. 

With Gunwharf Quays for brand shopping, Southsea with its quirky independents and restaurants as well as the Historic Dockyard with the transformed Mary Rose at its heart, it's no wonder people are flocking to the city by the sea.

From the 500-year-old imported oak floors and carved 18th century internal door frames to the Pininfarina Italian designed Snaidero Acropolis concentric kitchen which featured in the Thunderbirds film, the interiors will certainly be a talking point. At over 4,000 sq.ft spanning four floors, the contemporary open plan layout features an imposing 31ft reception hall with lift to all floors, a steel spiral staircase and a glass floor overlooking the aquatic fitness and hydrotherapy pool on the lower ground floor.
