Situated in the desirable St Cross area of Winchester, just south of the city centre, is this generously proportioned family home. The detached property has been extensively modernised in recent years by the current owners, who have created a family room extension and utility room, as well as upgrading the bathrooms and the stylish kitchen. Totalling some 2154 sq ft, the house has a bright and spacious feel, accessed via a welcoming front porch leading to an inner entrance hall. From here, doors lead to the main reception rooms, which include a 24ft sitting room with bay window and double doors leading to the conservatory; an 18ft family room; and a study. The heart of the family home is most certainly the contemporary kitchen/breakfast room, which features a good selection of fitted wood wall and base units complemented by granite worktops, including a breakfast bar. There are a variety of integrated appliances, with further space available in the adjoining utility room.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms arranged around a galleried landing, including a master bedroom with en suite shower room. The three additional bedrooms share a recently refitted family bathroom.
Christchurch Road is approximately three-quarters of a mile south of Winchester city centre, where there is a wealth of cultural, leisure and shopping amenities, plus a vast selection of restaurants, cafes and a thriving theatre. Nearby are pleasant walks along the river Itchen and its neighbouring water meadows, which lead to the famous Cathedral Close and Winchester College. Train services are available from Winchester main line station, which has trains to London Waterloo in approx. 1 hour. Road communications are also excellent, with the M3 providing access to the south coast/M27 and London. Southampton International Airport is 10 miles away with European and domestic flights. Local schools include Prince’s Mead, Pilgrims and St Faith’s School.
Ample off-street parking is available on the gravel driveway, where there is a parking area for several cars screened from the road by established hedging. Leading to the rear is a side gate which opens to a part-walled, west-facing garden, where there is a generous lawn, stone-paved terrace and a selection of flowerbeds stocked with mature shrubs and bedding plants. To the rear, a series of evergreens provide screening to a number of timber sheds and add a feeling of seclusion.
