About this property

It was converted into five dwellings in 1981 and is situated in a superb elevated position on St. Giles Hill. The current owners of no. 5 added an extension in 2012 designed by Winchester architect Huw Thomas and the property offers versatile family accommodation over three floors with a large and welcoming reception hall, good sized drawing room, large kitchen/dining room with bi-fold doors opening out on to the rear garden, a separate sitting room again with bi-fold doors, a utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

Local information

  • The house is located on St. Giles Hill adjacent to the park, on the corner of Baring Road and Northbrook Avenue, a wonderful tree lined avenue on St. Giles Hill. The historic open green park space provides an ideal area for families and dog walkers, with panoramic views across the City and to the South. The road itself is well maintained and yet unadopted, with an active residents association covering all the houses surrounding the five unadopted roads upon the hill.
  • The vibrant cathedral city is within close proximity and viable walking distance or even a regular bus route. Communications from St. Giles Hill are excellent, with access to junctions 9 and 10 of the M3 which in turn connects to either the A34 or M27. For the commuter there is a fast rail service connecting London Waterloo within the hour.
  • Schooling in the area is typically highly regarded with either a broad selection of private or comprehensive education, including St. Swithuns, Winchester College, Pilgrims and Peter Symonds.
  • Overall, St. Giles Hill has long been favoured for its established leafy environment.

Additional information
