An exceptional City residence, with parking, a garage and a stunning outlook.
This truly exquisite Grade II listed residence, which was converted in 1996 from a former late Victorian barracks block of the Royal Hampshire Regiment, has a superb interior offering both versatility and practicality to suit very well the demands of modern day living. The current owners have meticulously maintained the interior to a particularly high standard. There has been a wonderful update of the interior which compliments the existing period features which adorn throughout.
From the dramatic yet elegant façade, the welcoming entrance hall impresses with the height of the ceiling that then continues throughout the property. There is also an abundance of natural light gained from the tall sash windows. The accommodation comprises as follows: ground floor entrance hall with library shelving and space for a reception table, with a door leading through to an inner hallway accessing then a useful cloaks cupboard, utility/laundry room and the rear internal for the integral garage. The garage is of a generous size and has an additional storage cupboard to the rear. From the upper ground floor (garden level), the kitchen/dining room
overlooks the front of the property towards Serles House. The kitchen has been comprehensively fitted with a tastefully designed range of units and integrated high end' appliances. The kitchen is separated from the dining area with a movable island. There is a lovely informal living room/snug to the rear, with a view across the courtyard garden.
Stairs lead up to the first floor, whereby there is a classic formal drawing room with and outlook across the garden but also with a second southerly aspect view too. This floor also has two bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes and the use of a luxuriously appointed shower room suite. Up to the second floor, this could be considered as the primary accommodation, with three further bedrooms, which includes a principal bedroom suite and a further well appointed bathroom. Each of these bedrooms have the convenience of fitted wardrobes and delightful views of either the cathedral or the communal gardens and surrounding Peninsula Barracks.
