About this property

  • A Grade II Listed, predominantly Georgian, family house of 17th Century origin, is one of Winchester's finest private residences. It's located in the heart of the city with magnificent views of the eastern facade of the cathedral. Mulberry House is believed to have been named after a Mulberry Tree that was planted in the rear garden by Charles II. Sadly the tree no longer remains. The property, which has been substantially extended and meticulously renovated by the current owners, is offered in first class condition both internally and externally, with bespoke finishes of a quality rarely seen outside London. Perhaps the most impressive element of the house is the magnificent ‘orangery style' kitchen extension, which allows greater enjoyment of the garden and cathedral view. The extensive accommodation is arranged over three floors with the additional benefit of a large cellar. There is a one bedroom, integral, attached cottage, which could be utilised for staff or accommodation for dependant relatives.

    The rear gardens to the property have been designed by garden designers Hilliers of Romsey, gold medal winners at Chelsea Flower Show. An impressive terrace extends from the rear of the house, surrounded and interspersed with beautifully stocked and tended shrub and flower beds. This leads on to a pergola covered barbecue and Jacuzzi area, incorporating a fire pit and American stainless steel barbecue. The lawn is bordered by sumptuous flower beds. There is a delightful summerhouse and the gardens are walled with substantial Grade II Listed brick walls which add to the privacy, security and charm of the setting. From the terrace a pathway leads through a large hedgerow to a substantial parking and turning area with adjacent triple garage and security gates leading out onto Symonds Street. The gardens are automatically irrigated and there is a sophisticated garden lighting scheme.
