A charming detached cottage with parking and planning permission to extend, located in an idyllic location at the heart of St Cross.
Melrose Cottage is a charming detached 1830's cottage which has been beautifully restored by its current owners. It is situated in one of Winchesters most sought-after locations, just a short walk to the historic city centre.
The property has a wonderful open plan feel to the downstairs. A high ceiling hallway opens onto a cosy sitting room with open fireplace, leading through to a bright open plan dining area with French doors opening onto the picturesque cottage garden. The cottage kitchen is fitted to a fabulous modern standard with integrated white goods, a Rangemaster and Belfast sink. There is a separate utility area leading through to a bright downstairs shower room.
Upstairs the property benefits from two bright, double aspect bedrooms with views over St Catherine's Hill and feature fireplaces in each room. Additionally, the current owners have acquired the necessary planning permission and building regulations to extend the first floor accommodation, which would then add a further bedroom and upstairs bathroom - planning reference - 19/00846/HOU Designed by renowned local architect Huw Thomas.
An amazing addition to this property is the adjacent land which is currently used for a garage, parking and additional garden, however with much potential this space could be transformed into a home office, gym or overflow accommodation as well as parking for several vehicles (subject to necessary consents).
Beautiful inside and outside this property is a gem in the heart of St Cross.
