The Property:

The property is a particularly fine Grade II listed Regency style villa, built mid-19th century with an attractive street scene of a series of semi-detached villas and located on the favoured Western side of the street. The house is stuccoed, and colour washed white with inset sash and casement windows under a slate roof, providing a delightful aesthetic as well as plenty of character internally. A traditional panelled door opens into the spacious and welcoming entrance hall which has a polished floor and a front aspect window. The drawing room is positioned to the front of the house and is a double aspect room with a traditional fireplace, inset gas fire, flanked by bespoke bookcases with cupboards below. The kitchen was refitted in 2017 with an elegant 'John Lewis of Hungerford' in-frame base and eye level units with stone worktops, double ovens, gas hob and water filter tap as well as an island unit. The wooden floor runs seamlessly into the sitting room, which has a window to the rear aspect and a 'Clearview' fitted woodburning stove. This room could also be used as a dining area. A delightful garden room provides ample space for a good dining table or sitting area and is a bright and spacious area with a roof lantern and French doors into the garden; there is also plenty of fitted cupboards to one end with additional appliance space. A turning staircase rises to the first floor to a bright landing, with access to three double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom. Two further bedrooms both have fitted wardrobes, with the rear facing bedrooms looking towards Christ Church. The first-floor accommodation is completed by a separate shower room. Externally the property is approached over a granite sett driveway which facilitates two off road parking spaces with a front garden behind a mature hedge. Residents can also apply for on street residents parking permits. The enclosed rear garden is walled and laid to terrace for ease of maintenance with deep raised beds, a pergola and garden tool shed. There is also a rear garden irrigation system.

The Location:

The house lies in the heart of the city between St. James Lane and Compton Road on the western side of the northern end of the St. Cross Road. The house is therefore within walking distance of the High Street, a varied range of restaurants, the theatre, cinema, and there are wonderful walks around the Cathedral, the College, and the Water Meadows along the banks of the river Itchen. There is a shortcut to the station via Peninsula Barracks. It provides a fast commuter service to London Waterloo (circa one hour).


From the centre of Winchester proceed in a Southerly direction along Southgate Street, which becomes St. Cross Road. Turn right after the pedestrian crossing into St. James Lane and proceed for a short distance. St. James Villas are found at the second turning on the left-hand side. The property will be found on the right-hand side identified by our 'For Sale' board.
