About this property

  • Upon entering, the property immediately reveals itself and exceeds all expectations, with a perfect blend of charming characterful features that have been cleverly entwined with modern and luxurious fixtures and fittings throughout the property.

    The versatile reception room at the front of the property is currently utilised as a snug/sitting room but equally could act as an occasional ground floor bedroom. A particularly highlight is the fabulous open plan kitchen/living room featuring bi-folding doors to a courtyard garden. The fully fitted kitchen features high quality built in appliances and a Miele oven and hob. The space has been expertly configured to maximise storage, allow for plenty of work top space on the centre island and create a social entertaining hub for when guests visit. There is cloakroom and WC that completes the ground floor. The principal bedroom occupies the front of the property and contains two built in cupboards and attractive views towards Winchester cathedral. There is a further, surprisingly spacious bedroom and a beautifully fully fitted family bathroom with an abundance of natural light from a skylight.

    Venturing to the second floor where the views of Winchester cathedral are some of the best, there is a third double bedroom with space plenty of eave storage. The room is bright, spacious and feels luxurious as a result of the clever use of materials such as oak and high quality carpeting throughout.

    Accessed from the bi-folding doors there is a south facing courtyard garden, ideal for potted plants and trees. With plenty of space to dine al fresco, this additional reception space could be utilised all year round.
