Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fine late Victorian family house in an elevated position within this very popular Itchen Valley village in about a 1/3 of an acre mature garden.

The fine late Victorian family home is
constructed of brick elevations beneath a slate
roof. The accommodation is typical of this period
and is of generous proportions throughout,
as well as retaining all its inherent character and
charm including many features. It has been in
the same ownership since 1981 and during this
period a single storey outbuilding at the rear
has been incorporated into the main part of the
house, being linked with a new reception hall
and utility, now comprising the drawing room,
sitting room and bedroom three with a shower
cubicle. A superb conservatory has been added
off the kitchen/breakfast room providing a most
attractive focal point for the family.

Bourne Bank is in one of the most popular residential areas, within about 3 minutes walk of Twyford Preparatory School, in this largely unspoilt and very popular Itchen Valley village of Twyford, occupying an elevated position immediately to the north-east of the centre of the village.

Within the village there is an excellent range of
amenities, which includes a very good local shop/Post Office and adjoining cafe, plus a surgery and pharmacy, a vibrant church and also the very popular Bugle Inn which serves locally sourced ingredients. In addition, there is the Hunter Park recreation ground with its cricket and football pitches; tennis courts and children's play area.

The village is also well known for St Mary's
Church of England Primary School, as well
as the Twyford Preparatory School. There is a
mainline railway station (London Waterloo line) at
the nearby village of Shawford; many people walk to this.

The Cathedral City of Winchester lies just to
the north and offers more comprehensive
amenities including an excellent range of
shops and restaurants including Rick Stein, many cultural and recreational facilities, state
and private schools for all ages, including
Winchester College, St Swithun's School for
Girls and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College,
together with a mainline railway station
(London Waterloo - 1 hour).

To the south of Winchester lies the M3
motorway (junction 11), meaning that communications are excellent from this area of Hampshire providing easy access to all parts, including France. It is within 25 minutes of the south coast, including one of the UK's foremost sailing areas, the Hamble river and Southampton International Airport lies just to the south of Eastleigh.

From Bourne Lane, Bourne Bank is approached
over a gravel drive flanked by mature shrubs
and box edging and extends round the top of
the house to a good size parking area at the
rear, adjoining which there are brick steps and
terrace leading down to the front door, whilst
at the back door there is a small enclosed
paved area with room to store the wheelie bins.
The principal area of garden lies to the south
side with a large raised paved terrace, beyond
which there is a good size area of lawn with
numerous shrubs and, like the house, is ideally
suited for the family.
