A superb Grade II listed Georgian town house with a stunning Southwest facing view across River Itchen to the Cathedral.
This wonderful early 19th Century Georgian town house with its elegant façade offers a versatile accommodation of around 3181 sq. ft. across four floors and has come to the market for the first time in a generation. The classically styled property with many period features is within close proximity of Winchester city centre. It also has lovely views towards the Cathedral and the Guildhall from the rear of the property.
The entrance is from a flight of stone and railed steps to an attractive front door, opening into an impressive hallway, which showcases the high ceilings then evident throughout the property. There is an elegant staircase that sweeps up to the second floor landing with a fabulous glass lantern roof which allows for an abundance of natural light. Each of the principal rooms are of excellent proportions, with classic period features including fireplace and tall sash windows providing a light interior and stunning views to the rear. The lower ground floor, which then allows for access on to rear garden, has the potential for reconfiguration (subject to usual consents), of then the existing kitchen/breakfast room and separate dining room. The property has been well-maintained and provides an opportunity for the next owner to modernise to their own style (subject to usual consents).
At the front of the property, there is a second staircase that accesses the lower ground floor via the kitchen lobby, as well as a useful spacious storage area, suitable for bike storage etc. The beautiful rear walled garden is accessed via the lower ground floor hallway, to a paved terrace that extends via a pathway through the established rear garden to a gated shared access to the river's edge. The garden has a shed and WC.
