The Property:

A fine example of a classic early Victorian villa, believed to date from the 1860's, and home to some magnificent character features; including stripped and polished floorboards, high ceilings, ceiling cornice and large windows. The property offers spacious accommodation behind a most attractive classic façade, under a slate roof with inset windows and sash openers and is offered for sale in excellent order. The centralised entrance porch opens into an entrance hall, with staircase to the upper floors and cellar. The sitting room is double aspect with two large windows to the front and one to the side. Across the hall a well-proportioned dining room leads into the kitchen, which in turn opens into a garden room with roof lantern and French doors out to the south facing terrace. The first floor has a stunning drawing room again with a double aspect and a large bedroom with adjacent bathroom. Stairs rise to the second floor which facilitates a bedroom en-suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom three is a large double bedroom in the attic. The cellar is very dry and has a chamber which is currently used as a wine cellar, whilst the other portion houses the 'Megaflow' hot water cylinder and the gas fired boiler. Outside to the front is a raised lawn behind a low-level colour washed wall. Hedging provides privacy from the road and a large gravelled driveway which sits in front of the double garage. The private rear garden faces west and is walled and well-screened with mature hedging. The garden is laid to lawn with a raised sun terrace by the side of the property which is open to the south. Raised beds flanking the lawn are well stocked and provide a sea of colour. There is an additional terrace to the lower level and an original tool shed. The detached double garage has an electrically operated roller door and is currently partitioned to create a small store to the front with a stud work wall, the space behind is currently used as a home office.

The Location:

Situated in St. Cross which is among one of the most desirable positions within Winchester. Just to the south of the city and located within minutes of the city centre, St. Cross is particularly well-known for its access to The Water Meadows and the pleasant walks they afford into the city centre, through the ancient part of the city, the college and the Cathedral. The city centre and its amenities offer first class shopping, a varied range of restaurants, cinema, theatre and sports centre. Communications are excellent, with the mainline railway station running a service to London Waterloo (approximately 60 minutes) and the M3, A34, A303 and M27 all easily accessible. Schools in Winchester are first class, with St. Faith's Primary School nearby being highly sought after. There is a wide variety of further state and private schools in the area including Pilgrims & Winchester College a short walk away, Twyford School, Peter Symonds VI Form College and St. Swithun's School about two miles away.

Directions:

From the city centre proceed in a southerly direction along Southgate Street, which becomes St. Cross Road. Take the third right onto St. James Lane and then the fourth left onto Christchurch Road. The property will be found on the right-hand side, identified by our 'For Sale' Board.
