    About this property

    • The property is an exceptional Grade II Listed 19th century
      Georgian style property, arguably one of Winchester's finest
      private residences and located in an enviable quiet position. The property has tremendous views of the western facade of
      the Cathedral and is literally yards from the Cathedral Close its
      grounds and the High Street of Winchester.

      The house offers beautifully proportioned balanced
      accommodation with the classical features so typical of a property of this era, with large sash windows, beautiful high
      ceilings, feature fireplaces, ornate ceiling cornicing and of course a classical Georgian style reception hall, which runs the length of the property. Houses of this calibre rarely come to the market.

      The property is approached through an attractive pillared portico leading to an entrance lobby, which in turn leads on to the incredible reception hall. The reception hall provides access to the principal reception rooms and opens up to the fine turned staircase which leads to the first floor accommodation. The drawing room is a superb room overlooking the south-facing garden with feature fireplace, high ceiling and ceiling cornicing. Double doors lead from the drawing room into the equally impressive dining room. There is an excellent study which sits to the front of the property close to the front door, a separate sitting room, conservatory and a small office. There is a large kitchen/breakfast room, separate utility/boot room, ground floor cloakroom and a rear lobby which provides access to the secure parking area on the northern side of the house, next to the garaging. There are steps down from the rear lobby to the cellars, which are of a very good size and could be utilised for any number of purposes. There is also a back staircase leading to the first floor.

      On the first floor there is a large master bedroom suite
      overlooking the south-facing gardens and providing a wonderful view over this part of Winchester. The master bedroom benefits from an adjoining bathroom. There are five further excellent bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room.

      OUTSIDE
      On the northern side of the property electric gates open into
      a secure parking and turning area adjacent to the garaging.
      Access can be gained around the side of the house leading on to the south-facing rear gardens. The gardens are beautifully maintained, walled on three sides, providing an idyllic location in the heart of the city. Views of the cathedral can be seen from the gardens, and there is an excellent entertaining space immediately adjacent to the conservatory area.

      OUTBUILDINGS
      Detached double garage with adjoining single garage and
      workshop, behind the garage is a neatly arranged enclosed kitchen garden. There is also a Summer house.
