Sold STC £900,000
Full descriptionThis substantial and beautifully presented family property offers everything a discerning family expects, plus a good deal more. There are plenty of receptions, allowing for sociable family living in the more open-plan spaces, but also rooms which cater admirably for the need for privacy on occasion. There is a real flexibility to the accommodation with three large first floor bedrooms, plus a fourth double on the ground floor which could be used as a reception if so desired.
The extensive, well maintained gardens are ideal for those who love to garden, or who have children who will make full use of large, level areas of lawn.
The house is immensely bright internally, with large windows maximizing the amount of natural light on offer courtesy of its south-facing position. The layout and finish is perfectly suited for the rigours of family life with all the receptions radiating from an impressive central hallway. A beautiful hardwood floor is shared by the hall and all of the reception rooms.
A useful study is situated adjacent to a downstairs shower room to one side of the hall. On the other side of the hall, there is a good sized bedroom - perfectly placed to use the shower room opposite. Beyond the hallway lies a welcoming sitting room with feature fireplace and sliding doors to the garden, and access through to both the kitchen and to a super family room which also has its own door directly out to the rear garden.
At the very rear of the house is a highly attractive and practical cottage-style kitchen with wooden floor, ample units and space for all the essential appliances. This large, bright room makes for an appealing family space as it has room for a large table and doors out to a large conservatory beyond.
On the first floor are three excellent bedrooms, all of which have built in wardobes. The master bedroom in particular is very impressive, with a vaulted ceiling, an array of built in cupboards, a Juliette style balcony and a dressing area. The remaining two bedrooms on this floor share a very spacious family bathroom.
Nicely set back from the road beyond mature shrubs and trees, the house creates an appealing first impression. There is ample parking on the gravel driveway in front of the house and the detached garage which lies to one side of it. There is side access down both sides of the house leading to the rear garden.
At the rear of the garage lies a useful utility room and store, and beyond this is a lovely raised deck with pergola - a perfect place to catch the shade on a sunny summer's day. A second pergola with deck lies between the kitchen and the family room.
The wonderful gardens extend to almost a third of an acre, with a large rear lawn beyond an extensive patio area to the rear of the house. The garden is surrounded by mature hedgerow borders, and there are two sheds and a greenhouse towards the bottom of the garden.
Harestock Road is situated on the northern fringes of Winchester, ideally placed to give easy access to the mainline railway station and local shops on Stoney Lane and Priors Dean Road. The city centre is within easy reach, with its high street shops, boutiques, library, coffee shops, public houses, restaurants, theatre, cinema, museums and the city's historic cathedral. The M3 motorway, A34 and A303 are also easily accessible from this location. The property is close to and in catchment for good local schools, including Harestock Primary school and Henry Beaufort secondary school. Peter Symonds Sixth Form College is also nearby and is recognised for its outstanding results for pre-university education.
