An elegant Grade II listed Georgian townhouse in the heart of Wallingford.
Built, it is believed, in 1835 Winterbrook Close is a fine example of a double fronted Georgian townhouse with elegant proportions and brick elevations under a slate tiled roof. It has been lovingly restored by the present owners who have maintained many of the original features including fireplaces, cornices, windows and shutters. It now offers a beautiful family home taking full advantage of the Georgian architecture and character with a stylish and contemporary feel.
The magnificent portico entrance opens to a light reception hall off which are the main reception rooms. To the right is a charming sitting room overlooking the front garden with an original fireplace. The spacious drawing room is double aspect with high ceilings, open fireplace housing a log burning stove and beautiful French windows to the south facing garden terrace. The dining room is charming, also with an open fireplace and wood burner, stripped wood floor and French windows to the garden. The beautiful Barr kitchen has been cleverly designed to take the main features of the large window, high ceilings and original slate floor and add a traditional feeling kitchen with a bespoke open shelved dresser, range of floor standing cabinets and window seat which are hand painted in a stunning shade of green offset by a yellow Esse. The result is a warm, light space which is very much the heart of the home. Further practical additions are a large pantry and boot room which are accessed from the kitchen and garden. Off the pantry is self-contained annexe accommodation comprising a sitting room and bedroom with en suite shower room. Tucked neatly from the boot room is a gym with roof skylight and door opening to the greenhouse
To the first floor the principal bedroom is double aspect with a bay window overlooking the garden. Across the corridor is bedroom 4 which is currently used as a dressing room. There are two further double bedrooms, both with built-in cupboards and there is a large family bathroom with a shower and original clawfoot bath. There is also a separate WC with handbasin. The second floor has bedroom 5/study with en suite bathroom, storeroom and eaves storage.
Winterbrook Close is approached from the road via a gravel drive which opens to a large parking area to the front and side of the property. The front garden has a pretty parterre section planted around two mature trees, a high mature hedge to one side and a wall along the opposite and to the front of the house.
The rear garden has a magnificent Victorian greenhouse running in excess of 50 feet along the south facing wall. There is a long-established vine (believed to have come from Hampton Court) enjoying this productive space which is ideal for a keen gardener. Further along the wall the situation is perfect for the heated, resistance pool with deck surround.
From the main reception rooms the French windows open to a south facing terrace and the garden beyond. This area is edged with borders surrounded by low hedges and mature shrubs running along the length of the garden to one side and then opening to the large area of lawn. The garden is sunny and private benefitting from mature trees and shrubs along the north and east boundaries providing the perfect backdrop to this beautiful property.
