About this property

  • Exquisitely presented and substantially designed townhouse, with an outstanding far reaching view over St Catherine's Hill and beyond. Situated in one of the most desired residential areas of St Giles Hill on the eastern edge of the City, this classically proportioned home blends a seamless level of luxury and style such is the expectation from the highest specification developed by renowned local developers, Millgate (Winchester) Limited. Behind the wonderful detail there is a sophisticated MVHR air filtration system which regulates air quality and maintains air temperature.

    The magnificent entrance hall on the ground floor, leads through to a stunning open plan kitchen/dining/family room which spans the full width of the house and has a superb range of Bulthaup kitchen units and integrated appliances; two pairs of French doors open onto the south facing terrace. There is also a good sized family room and cloakroom on this floor. The imposing solid oak two-turn staircase rises to the first floor where the main reception ‘drawing room' with twin French casement windows guide you to the views over the South Downs and St. Catherine's Hill. A guest suite and study with balcony complete the first floor accommodation. Up upon the second floor there is a glorious glass ceiling lantern that allows an abundance of natural light to flood through. There are a further three well- proportioned bedrooms and family bathroom which has a vaulted ceiling. The master bedroom suite has premium views of St. Catherine's Hill and the Chilcombe Downs. With an internal space of 2494 sq.ft, this marvellous townhouse is wonderfully spacious and versatile accommodation to suit the demands of everyday living.

    The garden is terraced and has been beautifully landscaped, creating a very pretty, well stocked yet low maintenance space. A short Indian sandstone staircase opens the levels; the upper level has shrubs and specimen trees and the lower garden has several seating areas looking over roses, lovely shrubs and climbers. Externally there is adequate storage, including a shed and garage with electric remote controlled sliding door, power and light. There is also an off road parking space in front of the garage.

  • The house is located on St. Giles Hill near to the park, along the southern side of 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 un-adopted, with an active residents association covering all the houses surrounding the five un-adopted roads upon the hill. There is an annual subscription which covers the road maintenance and public liability insurance.

For the commuter there is a fast rail service connecting London Waterloo within the hour. There are also some fabulous walking routes conveniently accessible.
  • 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.
