Approached via a long private drive the house is set discreetly back from the road and enveloped by beautifully mature gardens. It offers well balanced accommodation over two floors, with further scope for improvement and extension (subject to the necessary planning consents). The ground floor has well proportioned reception rooms and allows for a variety of uses depending on a purchaser's requirements. There are three principle reception rooms complimented by a kitchen/dining room with larder and utility room. There is also a pretty study with French doors to the garden ideal for those who spend some time working from home. The first floor has four sizeable bedrooms and two bathrooms with two further bedrooms currently utilised as children's bedrooms; you walk through one to reach the other.
Compton is considered to be one of the prime residential areas of Winchester, offering substantial properties in a desirable setting and yet it is within easy reach of Winchester city centre (1.5 miles) and the wide range of extensive amenities and excellent cultural and leisure facilities it has to offer.

The mainline railway station in Shawford (0.6 miles) offers direct rail access to London Waterloo (about one hour). Junction 11 of the M3 provides road access to London and the south coast and Southampton International Airport offers daily flights to a variety of domestic and European destinations
Approached via a gravelled drive and set well back from the road with mature hedge screening. The driveway provides parking for a number of cars and also leads on to the detached garage with carport built in 2002.
The gardens themselves are a delightful feature, primarily laid to lawn and interspersed with mature fruit and blossom trees with a small wooded area to the rear providing a wonderful spot for 'hide and seek'. A flagstone terrace wraps the rear and side of the house and is ideal for outside dining when the weather allows. The cottage garden to the south westerly aspect is screened from the main garden and is a wonderful spot for your fruit and vegetables.
The house sits next to Compton & Shawford recreation ground and enjoys far reaching views to one side with the added benefit of a gate straight into the ground allowing easy access to both the tennis club and park.
