A FORMER student accommodation building in Winchester has been put up for sale for potential redevelopment.

Chilbolton Court, on the corner Romsey Road and Chilbolton Avenue, is currently in a state of disrepair with internal damage due to damp issues.

The two-storey building, accessed from Marnhull Rise, was used as accommodation for the University of Winchester and is about a mile-and-a-half from the city centre.

It's being sold by estate agents Savills as a residential development opportunity, subject to planning.

The site is likely to be keenly eyed by housing developers.
