A fine Victorian family home in the heart of St Cross

Location

Christchurch Road is situated in the heart of St Cross, a Conservation Area to the south of the city centre of Winchester. The area, renowned for its high quality Victorian housing stock, is situated conveniently for the pedestrian shopping centre in the High Street with access to the wealth of shops, restaurants and recreational facilities including the Theatre Royal and local cinema. Winchester College and the water meadows of St Cross, which stretch along the banks of the River Itchen, are nearby. There are splendid walks through the historic cathedral streets, the water meadows and on to St Catherine's Hill. Winchester is approximately 57 minutes by train from London Waterloo. The M3 motorway (J9, 10 and 11) is within easy reach, making both London and Southampton readily accessible. The interconnection with the M27 makes Southampton International Airport easily commutable and also opens up the South Coast and New Forest. The A24 to the north provides access to Oxford, the Midlands, the A303 and the West Country.

Description

Believed to have been built circa 1870, this substantial Victorian property is built of brick under a slate roof and benefits from the character features and proportions for which this era is best known. Indeed many of the character features remain at the property, including the superb highly decorative and ornate ceiling cornicing and central ceiling roses in the principal reception rooms, the large sash windows and generous 11 ft ceiling heights. The large drawing room is particularly stunning with its feature fireplace and aspect down the garden with doors leading out onto the garden terrace. The dining room is an equally attractive room, as is the small sitting room which completes the reception accommodation on the ground floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is a very good size, measuring 25'4 x 12'8, with a fitted kitchen comprising a range of pine units with granite work surfaces over. To the side of the property is a lobby area which in turn leads through to the rear gardens, the utility room, and from there the cloakroom and storeroom.

On the 1st floor there are 4 excellent double bedrooms including the master bedroom suite with adjoining shower room. There is a separate family bathroom and cloakroom.

On the 2nd floor there are 4 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The property also has the benefit of an excellent cellar.

Outside
The property is approached over a gravel driveway leading to a large parking and turning area to the front of the property, the front door and access to the side. There is a small area of lawned garden to the front interspersed with mature trees and shrubs. To the rear the terrace lies adjacent to the drawing room at the back of the house. From here lawned gardens extend to approximately 140 feet facing west and being walled on the southern side; to the rear end of the garden a large apple tree dominates. The gardens continue beyond the apple tree, where paved paths on either side lead to a former vegetable garden.

Square Footage: 4,060 sq ft
