'Moreton House' was designed by renowned Winchester architect Huw Thomas, and constructed in 1998 by reputable local developer Neil Briercliffe Developments. The property draws on classical influences and the well-proportioned accommodation is laid out over three floors, sitting behind a traditional brick façade with inset sash and casement windows under a clay and slate tiled roof. The circulation space has solid oak flooring and an oak staircase, whilst the drawing room has a vaulted ceiling and fitted wood burning stove. In the middle of the property is an ingenious internal courtyard, which brings the hallway alive with natural light. The first and second floor landings have plenty of glass, which provides a bright and airy feeling and in turn floods the floor below with an abundance of light. The property sits opposite the outer wall of the Cathedral and is within moments of Kingsgate Arch and the tiny church of St. Swithun-upon-Kingsgate. Winchester College, the Pilgrims' Preparatory School and the Wykeham Arms are within a stone's throw.
