The Property:

Situated behind imposing brick elevations with large inset sash windows and beautifully high ceilings, the accommodation of this town house is laid out over four floors and is presented to the highest standards. The front door from Gar Street opens into a spacious hallway with tiled floor and fitted library shelving, with a door to the garage, utility room and stairs that rise to the upper ground floor. This is a beautifully light space with double shutter doors and a glass door behind, which opens to the garden. On this floor there is a cosy sitting room, a refitted kitchen/dining room with granite worktops, a moveable island unit and integrated appliances and a cloakroom. The first floor accommodates the formal drawing room which is double aspect with views over the communal grounds, along with two front aspect bedrooms, both served by a refitted shower room. The top floor has the principal bedroom and a contemporary shower room en-suite, whilst the two remaining bedrooms are served by a modern bathroom. The floor plan offers flexibility, whilst the current owners currently accommodate two studies, some of the other properties along Gar Street have had the interiors completely remodelled to suit differing lifestyles. The views to the front of the property from the upper floors look towards the Cathedral and Downs beyond, whilst overlooking the communal garden square to the rear which is neatly enclosed by mature trees and provides an air of tranquillity, rare in such a central city location. There is a parking space to the front of the large garage and residents are also able to obtain two visitors parking spaces. The west facing private walled garden has been hard landscaped with well stocked raised beds, a pergola and an attractive brick herringbone path which leads to the gate, which opens onto the communal garden.

The Location:

Gar Street forms part of an imposing Grade II listed period building which forms part of the Lower Barracks of the Peninsula Barracks Development, converted from an 1870's military building in 1996. It lies in the very heart of the city off Southgate Street behind Searles House, which itself is one of the finest buildings in central Winchester and home to the Museum of the Royal Hampshire Regiment. It is beautifully tucked away, remarkably quiet, and yet is within walking distance of all the city's amenities as well as lovely walks beside the river through the water meadows, around the College and Cathedral Close. Communications are excellent with fast access on to the M3 north to London or south to the M27 coastal motorway. There is a mainline station to London Waterloo with a fast and regular commuter service, Southampton International Airport, and the European ferry port at Portsmouth. Schools in Winchester are first class, with St. Bede primary school nearby being highly sought after. There is a wide variety of further state and private schools in the area including Pilgrims and Winchester College a short walk away, Twyford School, Peter Symonds Sixth Form College and St. Swithun's School is just two miles out of the city.


From the city centre proceed in a southerly direction along Southgate Street and after passing Hotel du Vin, turn right into Archery Lane. Bear right at the top into Gar Street and this property will be found on the left-hand side.
