Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An extremely fine period village house within a mature garden with excellent amenities close at hand.

This delightful family home is understood to date
back to the late 17th century, and, as its name
implies, it was formerly a cottage which was
substantially enlarged on the south side in 1850
by Alderman Binney, sometime Lord Mayor of
Winchester. It is understood that Mr Binney
left money to the Cathedral architect who, it
is thought, was very influential in the design of
the extension.

Constructed of whitened brick elevations,
incorporating window shutters to two sides,
beneath a tiled roof, with a single storey slate
roofed extension at the rear, The Cottage has
been well maintained by the present owners
over the last 25 years. The comfortably
proportioned and light and airy accommodation
which is based on three floors with the
added benefit of good cellarage, is ideally
suited for family occupation, with good ceiling
heights throughout.

The Cottage forms part of the Conservation Area
within the older part of the village of Kings
Worthy, which lies just to the north east of the
Cathedral City of Winchester, with good
amenities close at hand within the village
including a Post Office/store, church, primary
school, Tesco Metro and two public houses.
There is also a first class farm shop, which
includes a general store, very good butcher, café
and garden centre. The Cathedral City centre is
within a short drive, although there is a regular
local bus service between the village and the
city, and offers a comprehensive range of
amenities including a pedestrianised shopping
precinct, cultural and recreational facilities,
together with a mainline railway station (London
Waterloo).

There are excellent schools for all ages within
the City and the surrounding area, including St
Swithun’s for Girls and Winchester College, as
well as the well known Sixth Form College, Peter
Symonds. Just beyond the eastern and
southern outskirts of Winchester there is
an access onto the M3 Motorway together with
the A34, which connects the South Coast with
the Midlands.

The property is approached from the road
through a pair of white ornamental wrought iron
gates over a tarmacadam drive up to a parking
and turning area, flanked on one side by a good
size area of lawn with a number of specimen
trees, shrubs, and a rose bed with a stone
retaining wall. Along the southern boundary
there is a mature conifer hedge. The
tarmacadam drive continues round to a
courtyard where there is further parking, a paved
sitting out area approached off the kitchen, and
an area of lawn which extends round the rear of
the garage block to the pool area, containing a
heated swimming pool with paved surround,
providing good sitting out areas. There are well
stocked shrub and flower borders. Along the
rear of the outbuildings is a pergola with
climbing roses.

Garage Block
Rendered and colour-washed elevations
beneath a slate roof, which incorporates solar
panels for the heating of the swimming pool.

Outbuildings
A range of whitened brick beneath a slate roof
comprising a workshop, store and outside WC.
