A superbly presented five bedroom detached contemporary designed family home offering a real lifestyle opportunity within a prime location on the outskirts of Winchester.
Mark Two was built in 1969/70. It was designed by local architect, Charles Burford, for his daughter. At the time it was built it was definitely state of the art'. The architect had spent time in the USA and was incorporating their most modern design features in the homes he had built around Winchester. The current owners have enhanced the features of the property further creating some fabulous living spaces. The kitchen was renovated in 2019 with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units with cupboard and drawer sections with work surfaces over. A central island with breakfast bar provides further preparation area and the vaulted ceilings make for a particularly light and bright living space.
The formal reception areas are superb in the way they interlink with one another, the lower sitting room with its central log burner creates a very welcoming feel with great ceiling heights and open plan with steps up to the dining area. This arrangement is perfect for everyday living and entertaining, it is also gives a great feeling of space. The upper sitting room offers great dimensions and with a bank of bi-fold doors onto a large balcony is a real feature room with lots of light. Looking out from this vantage point there is a great view out over the ornamental gardens to the front and a real feeling of seclusion. There is a total of five bedrooms, although one at ground floor would also work well as a study/home office. All the shower/bathrooms have been completely renovated with under floor heating in all three and Aqualisa showers in two.
Inside this home offers a contemporary lifestyle, open plan with lots of light and a feeling of great calm, a rare opportunity so close to Winchester
