A charming period cottage on a sought-after location close to the centre of Winchester, available to the market for the first time in over 45 years. This sweet Victorian property has been a delightful family home and offers excellent scope for modernization for the new owner.
Though the property offers much character and is in a good state of repair, it is dated internally and would benefit from some updates to the décor. With good size rooms on the ground floor and four bedrooms and a family bathroom and in addtion there is a box room and a loft space with integrated drop down ladder. The property is ideal for families and downsizers seeking a central base.
On the ground floor, the property comprises a 21ft double aspect sitting room and a separate kitchen with space for a dining table. An entrance hallway has a staircase to the first floor, where there are four bedrooms. In addition there is a family bathroom and a storage cupboard.
Middle Road is an extremely desirable road and yet within easy reach of the station, city centre and Oram's Arbour. The Fulflood area of Winchester has a superb selection of shops and pubs, while the wider city of Winchester is popular for its many coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, theatre, cinema and historic cathedral. Nearby green spaces include the water meadows alongside the river Itchen, with plenty of footpaths nearby within the South Downs National Park. The M3 offers excellent road access to London and the national motorway network, with the mainline train station (0.5 miles) serving London Waterloo in around 55 minutes. There are many outstanding schooling options in and around Winchester including Princes Mead, Winchester College and St Swithun’s School, with Peter Symonds Sixth Form College within easy reach.
The rear garden is deceptively spacious, hidden behind a high fence and a pedestrian side gate. To one side of the property there is a good size paved patio ideal for alfresco dining, with a parcel of lawn to the rear up a short flight of brick steps and a second larger lawn area on the other side of the house. There is ample mature planting and a selection of borders, with established trees affording a feeling of privacy. The property also features an integral single garage. Residents' parking permits are available at an extra cost for on-street parking.
