A lovely example of a character Arts & Crafts family home. Wychbury House has that 'feel' people search for but can't quite explain in a home. The house is filled with period features, great natural light and enjoys wonderful views. An impressive reception hall leads to all principal reception rooms including the fabulous open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room. It really is the hub of the house with French doors onto the terrace and with views to the gardens and South Downs beyond. There are two further reception rooms, one being a more formal drawing room with open fire and a family/games room, both again looking out to the rear gardens. Practicalities have also been thought of with a utility room, pantry, cloakroom and rear entrance hall. Cellarage to the ground floor offers a very useful storage space. The sweeping staircase to the first floor gives way to a sizeable master suite with newly refurbished en-suite bathroom and a range of fitted wardrobes. There is a guest room with-ensuite bathroom and three further double bedrooms and family bathroom. The first floor has another bedroom and bathroom which the current owners use as separate annex style accommodation, but that can be flexible in its uses depending on a purchasers needs.
The property is situated on Quarry Road in the popular residential area of St Giles Hill and is within walking distance of the cathedral city of Winchester (0.6 mile), with its excellent range of shops, restaurants, cultural and leisure facilities. There is an extensive range of both state and private schools for all ages in the area, including Winchester College, St Swithun’s, Pilgrims and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College. The mainline railway station (1.3 miles) offers access to London Waterloo (about one hour) and Junction 11 of the M3 provides access to London (about 70 miles) and the south coast. The countryside surrounding Winchester is well served with footpaths and bridle paths, including the South Downs Way.
The gardens at Wychbury House are one of its many jewels. The house is approached via a sweeping drive with parking for several cars and is set back from the road and well screened with hedging, trees and mature plants.
The principal rear gardens are separated into tiered level lawns with wonderful walled boarders filled with established plants. A central brick pathway runs down the garden giving access to the various areas.
Like the house itself, the gardens enjoy lovely south easterly views towards the South Downs.
The terrace to the top of the gardens is accessible from the house and makes for both a beautiful suntrap and spot for outside dining.
