The Property:

This delightful Victorian house provides a gravelled driveway behind a gated frontage with a traditional front door that opens into a welcoming entrance hall which provides a cloak cupboard and a cloakroom with a door that opens into an inner hallway with a sweeping staircase that rises to the first floor. A drawing room sits to the front of the house with a box bay window, an imposing fireplace is flanked by bespoke fitted cupboards with shelving above. The formal dining room is a spacious room, again with fitted cabinetry and a bay window to the side aspect. The beautifully refitted kitchen comprises a comprehensive range of white fronted shaker style units with a pantry cupboard, wine fridge, double ovens and a deep warming drawer, also an integrated dishwasher and pan drawers. The centralised island is topped with a riven granite countertop with an induction hob and extractor and has a breakfast bar to one end with space for a breakfast table in front of a pair of French doors that open onto the spacious side terrace. The kitchen opens into the garden room which was designed by renowned architects Chaplin Farrant Wiltshire and added in 2015, when the whole property was renovated and refurbished. This creates a fantastic space with the back wall completely glazed with contemporary grey sliders that open onto the terrace. To the other side is a glazed corner window which looks over and opens to the side garden. The whole of the ground floor is fitted with a dark oak flooring, with under floor heating in the garden room. The utility/plant room is situated in the cellar. The first floor has a principal bedroom suite with a pair of French doors that open to an east facing balcony, ideal for a morning cup of coffee, there are fitted wardrobes and a dual aspect en suite shower room. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both double bedrooms and are served by a shower room. A double aspect study area provides further space with stairs that rise to the guest bedroom suite, again dual aspect with a freestanding bath, washbasin, and WC to one end and a spacious bedroom the other which opens into a large storage area. Externally the property offers gated parking to the front with parking for several vehicles. A pedestrian gate opens into the side garden which is terraced and most private with an array of mature shrubs providing excellent sheltered space for a good dining table adjacent to the French doors to the kitchen. This leads to the west facing garden which were both designed by Susan Ashton, a member of Society of Garden Designers and transformed in 2016/2017 with a terrace directly behind the house and steps that graduate onto a centralised lawn with a path that neatly wraps around the perimeter, the garden is well stocked with flower and shrub borders with a lower-level terrace and a garden shed.

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 turning left onto Christchurch Road, proceed through where the road narrows and down and then up the road where the property will be found on the right-hand side.
