A wonderful detached family home with secondary detached accommodation. Located in a beautiful Winchester village offering a convenient proximity to the City and excellent local schools.
Monks Rest is an exceptional Grade II listed Medieval Hall House, with some wonderful late 15th century origins and later sympathetic Victorian additions. It features in The Pevsner Architectural Guides (a renowned series of guide books to the architecture of Great Britain and Ireland), as well as other architectural books about houses of significant historical interest. The current owners, who have owned the property since 2006, have joyfully remarked about how well the property has served as a superb family home. They have presented the property in excellent overall decorative order and upon viewing you'll note beautiful presentation, retained character and overall abundance of charm. Key period features include, flagstone flooring, exposed beams and working fireplaces.
The accommodation is one which is both versatile and truly spacious. From an impressive entrance reception hall, the ground floor has two separate reception rooms and stunning kitchen and dining room which features a dramatic vaulted
ceiling. The ground floor also has a useful amount of storage, a utility boot room with WC and access to a generous sized cellar storage area.
From a delightful first floor galleried landing, there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main bedroom features an attractive open-plan bathroom with separate door to a WC. The loft space is accessible and is insulated.
Uniquely, there is a useful detached secondary accommodation ideally suited to guest lodging or a work from home studio in a lovely country setting, with a kitchen/ living room, bedroom and shower room.
The garden of Monks Rest is absolutely delightful, with both a formal and informal landscaping, which incorporates well stocked flower beds, winding paths, lawn areas, a vegetable and fruit garden and of course the family area. Parking is very practical, with space alongside the property or off road to a private gravelled area at the rear. This gravelled area was granted planning permission in May 2009 for a garage and carport (09/00507/FUL).
