The Old Bakery is situated on the southern edge of Otterbourne, moments from the Common. The location combines ease of access into the City of Winchester with proximity to the countryside and riverside walks. The property, built in 1908 as a separate residence and bakery, has been skilfully linked by a very attractive garden room. Together with the former coach house and stable, the buildings border two sides of a large courtyard to the rear, with an attractive secluded garden that backs onto woodland beyond. It is within catchment of the renowned Kings and Thornden secondary schools, and Peter Symonds sixth form college.
