Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This splendid hidden gem is beautifully positioned in the heart of Winchester - moments away from the the high street shops, boutiques and of course the beautiful historic cathedral. The property has a rich and colourful history, variously used as a private home, Bed and Breakfast, and even a dance studio.

Handsome from the outside with the original red brick elevations, arched doors and traditional sash windows. Internally the elegant décor charms and fascinates as one moves from room to room. The balance of space is just right with three reception rooms on the ground floor and 5 en-suite bedrooms on the upper floors. There is a great deal of flexibility on offer with a self-contained annexe which includes two of the bedrooms, two bathrooms a kitchen/breakfast room and family room.

Each room has been lovingly crafted and cared for by the owner designed to make the most of the large open space. The property offers over 3000 square feet of accommodation and feels every bit of that, with grand ceiling heights adding to the impression of light and space throughout. At the same time the rooms manage to feel homely and intimate.

Ground floor rooms are centred around a spacious dining hall. An impressive archway leads through to the lounge, which features a duel fuel burning stove, built in shelving surrounding the archway, and French doors leading out onto the south facing courtyard. The kitchen/ breakfast room occupies one end of this impressive open-plan space. The room could easily be reconnected through to the original kitchen (now the kitchen for the annexe) which is alongside. This lovely room features marble worktops, a large central island, traditional butler sink and a large larder. The washing machine and tumble dryer are housed in the utility room, which also has extra storage and a downstairs WC. The annexe also benefits from its own cosy family room. The whole ground floor has under floor heating beneath the cement flooring.

The first floor has a spacious hallway enhanced by high ceilings accessed by a natural oak staircase. Three double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and mezzanine areas are individually and tastefully designed. There are two further en-suite bedrooms on the first floor accessed by a separate staircase within the annexe. One of these bedrooms boasts a large dressing room and storage area. Beautiful oak flooring runs throughout.

Outside, the traditional English south-facing courtyard is the perfect place to relax. The property also comes with two parking spaces, one of which is next to the house and one a couple of minutes walk away.

Parchment Street is superbly positioned for easy access to the mainline railway station (links to London Waterloo in approx 55 minutes), and city with its high street shops,
boutiques, Discovery Centre, coffee shops, public houses, restaurants, theatre, cinema, museums and of course the city’s historic cathedral. The property benefits from being in the St Bede and Westgate schooling catchments.

Leaving on foot from the Winkworth office in Winchester, proceed to the end of Southgate Street and turn right onto the High Street. Follow the road round to the left onto Jewry Street and take the first right onto St Georges Street. Parchment Street is the second road on the left,
and the property can be found tucked away in courtyard on the left hand side.
