The Property:

A fine example of a late Victorian villa, and home to some magnificent character features including high ceilings, ceiling cornice, fireplaces and large windows. The footprint has been extended significantly to the ground floor creating the family room and dining room and above on the first floor which facilitates the principal bedroom. The property offers spacious accommodation behind a most attractive classic red brick façade with contrasting buff quoining, under a slate roof with inset windows and sash openers and is offered for sale in excellent order. A welcoming entrance hall has a turning staircase rising to the upper floors with a polished mahogany handrail. The drawing room sits to the front of the house with an imposing marble fireplace flanked by low level fitted cupboards, with doors that open into the sitting room again with a marble fireplace, stripped and polished floorboards. The dining room has French doors opening onto a West facing terrace and provides a convivial space for dining and neatly links both the sitting room and family room. To the back of the house is the family room which is triple aspect and has French doors opening into the rear garden and a contemporary wood burning stove, which leads into the kitchen, fitted with a range of modern units underneath sleek granite worksurfaces. The first floor has a principal bedroom to the back of the property which is triple aspect including an interesting circular window to the side; this has an en suite with a bath and separate shower and a dressing room. The second bedroom is situated to the front and has an en suite shower room. The third double bedroom is dual aspect with an interesting arched window to the side and is served by a separate shower room. The second floor has the fourth double bedroom with a dressing room which could also be an additional box room or even another shower room. The basement houses the utility room and a store. Externally the gardens wrap around the front, side and rear. The front has a pedestrian entrance, whilst the side garden is a lovely space and features raised vegetable planters, a terrace and opens to the rear garden which has a terrace immediately behind the house and a centralised lawn flanked by flowerbeds either side. There is a summer house with a store to the side. To the rear of the garden is off road parking behind a pair of gates, accessed from Christchurch Road.

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 to the high street, 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.


Proceed in a southerly direction from the city centre along Southgate Street which becomes St. Cross Road. Continue taking the third turning on the right into Ranelagh Road, proceed for a short distance where the property will be found on the right-hand side, identified by our 'For Sale' board.
