Dating from the late 19th century, Grove House is an elegant detached property tucked away from Quarry Road and set in an elevated position on St Giles Hill in grounds of 0.49 acres offering wonderful views to the south. There is a most impressive entrance hall with the original tiled floor, oak staircase with a galleried landing and panelled ceiling which sets the tone for the rest of the house. The main rooms are of elegant proportions with high ceilings and original coving, arranged over three floors with a layout well suited for both comfortable family living and entertaining on a grand scale. The house is constructed with brick elevations under a tiled roof, cast iron guttering with gold painted lion details and has been carefully maintained to a high standard both internally and externally.
The Reception Hall leads to the principal ground floor rooms. The Drawing Room is a most comfortable room with open fireplace and double doors onto the rear garden and far-reaching

On the ground floor there is also a study, snug, cloakroom and utility room.
Stairs lead down to the cellar which houses the boiler and makes for good storage. The first floor comprises a master bedroom with a lovely bay
window showing beautiful views and ensuite bathroom, 3 further double bedrooms (one currently used as a study), a dressing room, single bedroom and family bathroom. A second staircase leads up to the top floor with a further four bedrooms , a tank room, bathroom and kitchen. This could be a separate flat if required.

There is an extensive range of both state and private schools for all ages in the area, including Winchester College, St Swithun's 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.

Attractively landscaped and well stocked with numerous shrubs, perennials and mature trees, the rear garden is arranged over terraces leading to a large formal area of lawn and down to a vegetable plot, shed and hose.
