An exquisite and meticulously restored 4-bedroom period home benefitting from a central location within St Cross, charming gardens and private off-street parking for 2 vehicles.
An exceptional example of a period property that has been restored with great care and attention to detail that is rarely seen in Winchester. This beautiful and historic family home is thought to date back to circa. 1600 and has undergone an extensive course of renovation and restoration by the current owner producing a notable St. Cross address.
The unassuming main entrance immediately welcomes you and sets the tone for the quality and character contained within. Upon entering, it is instantly evident the lengths the current owners have gone in order to restore, reveal and accentuate the period features once hidden, whilst ensuring modern family life is catered for. There is an elegant reception room to the front of the property with high ceilings and a beautiful original bay window; the room makes for an ideal evening sitting room or an all-day family space. A particular highlight of the ground floor is the luxuriously equipped kitchen with underfloor heating, range cooker, wine cooler and built in appliances. There is a notable blend of modern luxury entwined with original features, exposed beams and a truly unique opening between beams to the drawing room. The generous proportions of the drawing room invite one to what is clearly the heart of the home, enjoying direct access to the paved terrace and mature gardens, whilst connecting beautifully back to the kitchen making for a brilliant entertaining space.
Venturing to the first floor via a wide and sweeping staircase that is bathed in natural light, there is a guest bedroom with a family bathroom accessible via a few stops off the main staircase. There are two further very impressive bedrooms and the primary suite at the rear of the property. Enjoying views over chimney pots of Canon Street and on to the Chapel of Winchester College, the room has a stunning vaulted ceiling, generous en suite shower room and unique character that has been enhanced by clever design and faultless workmanship.
Notable in such a central location is the private off-street parking spaces for two cars, with a path leading to the attractive rear gardens. Containing mature trees, shrubs and planting that create an extremely pleasant environment, there are also thoughtfully positioned seating areas to enjoy throughout the day. Designed to capture the best of the
sunshine, a particular favourite of the current owners is the midterrace, which enjoys a westerly aspect and the late evening sun with a view back to the highly attractive rear elevation with hung tiles. There is a very useful lower ground storage room that with some work could represent an opportunity for further accommodation in the form of a hobby room, gymnasium or additional storage.
