Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This imposing double fronted property was built in 1928 and is approached via a large driveway with a storm porch leading to the front door. As you enter the home, you are welcomed by the impressive entrance hall which grants access to the first floor, the kitchen/breakfast room and both the family and dining rooms. The dining room effortlessly flows through to the sitting area and has a gorgeous multi-fuel burner as the centre piece for both rooms, combined with high ceilings and two sets of sliding doors leading out to the patio. The kitchen/breakfast room is situated to the rear of the property and features a pantry as well as a large extended utility room which has sliding doors out to the garden. The downstairs accommodation is completed with a boot room, which has a shower and W.C. The first floor boasts the property's primary bedroom with a bay window to the front aspect, an array of wardrobe space as well as a fantastic four-piece en-suite. Three further large double-bedrooms are situated along the landing with the four-piece family bathroom. The internal accommodation is completed by the light and airy attic conversion which the current owners use as a home office and occasional bedroom. The eaves storage is continuous throughout the space, including a large walk-in area and strategically placed cupboard door access points. Along with the expansive driveway, there is a four-car detached garage with electric up and over front door, as well as a courtesy door. Mature trees and hedges surround the perimeter of the entire plot which spans 0.44 acres making the estate incredibly private. The rear garden has a large stone patio, but is mainly laid to lawn with a vegetable patch and summer house, which could be used as an additional office or children’s playroom.

A little something from the owners:

“Highmead really is the property that keeps giving. We have lived here since 1992 and during that time, our needs have changed from a couple, to a family of five and now a household of four adults, and the property has morphed and accommodated everyone's needs during that time. Every year we have enjoyed a good crop of home-grown vegetables, apples, blackberries, cherries and used the garden both for socialising and solace. Since lockdown three of us have been video conference working at the same time from home and Highmead has easily accommodated this without us feeling on top of each other. We have enjoyed the excellent position of the property with easy access to the New Forest, Sailing and shopping. Even the dogs have a choice of walking areas without the need to use the car. Highmead still has more to give and we hope you will enjoy what the property offers as much as we have.”

Situated in the highly requested area of Southampton, located in-between West End and Burlsedon, the area benefits from popular schooling, mainline transport links and superstore shopping facilities. For the sailing enthusiast the River Hamble is a short distance away and further benefits include a David Lloyd health and fitness facility, the Ageas Bowl and easy access to the motorway.

The catchment schools for the property are Shamblehurst Primary and Wildern Secondary School, both of which have excellent reputations.

The city centre of Southampton offers an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities ranging from small boutique outlets to major department stores including the landmark West Quay shopping mall. Restaurants, bars and cafes cater for every taste and the Cinema de lux offers the finest film viewing experience. Numerous pleasant parks, together with The Common, city golf course and sports centre offer a wide range of leisure opportunities with hundreds of acres of green open space. Premier league football is played at St Marys and the Ageas Bowl is the home of Hampshire cricket hosting domestic and international matches together with live music events. The Guildhall, Mayflower and Nuffield theatres host a wide and eclectic range of plays, opera, ballet and musicals and the public art gallery in the civic centre has a famous and acclaimed collection.
