    About this property

    • Built circa.1820 this charming family home sits alongside similar historic buildings and within the most attractive of streets scenes opposite the Cathedral wall. Upon arrival there is a very practical entrance hall with built in storage areas and plenty of space for a desk. Leading from the hall there is a wonderful, newly fitted kitchen with range cooker, feature lighting and high quality built-in appliances. The kitchen leads through to a characterful dining room which opens on to the most attractive of drawing rooms, a particular highlight of the property. This wonderful main reception room is well-proportioned and benefits from a wood burning stove and double doors leading to a paved sun terrace and the very pretty south facing garden. Completing the ground floor is a downstairs WC and utility room.

      Moving to the first floor, one starts to see glimpses of Winchester Cathedral and the chimney pots of the surrounding Cathedral streets to the south. The primary suite to the rear of the property features plenty of built in storage and an impressive en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a stylish family bathroom. The cleverly designed top floor delivers a fantastic fourth bedroom and bathroom. Featuring one of the finest views of Winchester Cathedral, the second floor makes for a wonderful guest bedroom, yet also a practical work from home space due to the well-thought-out work station, smartly tucked away on the landing.

      Overall the property provides period features and genuine comfort that is perfectly entwined with modern luxuries and practicalities all set within a quintessentially Winchester location.

      Venturing outside there is a notable sense of peace and tranquillity that is synonymous of the area, yet rare to find in a property so centrally located. From the drawing room there is a paved terrace where the historic city wall is still visible and provides an extremely pleasant place to relax due to the southerly aspect and privacy from the mature trees and planting contained within the garden. There is an area of manicured lawns, a variety of raised beds, fruit trees and a modest water feature. Tucked in a corner of the garden is a potting shed and a storage room, ideal for bikes, garden tools or other leisure equipment.

    Should you find yourself short of a pint of milk for breakfast, or a bottle of Bordeaux to accompany supper, a gem of a local store, Kingsgate Wine & Provisions is but a two minute walk from the front door.
