Sitting in a large garden in a quiet road in St Cross, one of Winchester’s most sought-after locations, Barnes Close is a handsome detached Edwardian family house. In the same family ownership for over 60 years the sale is a once in a generation opportunity. Set back from the road behind a private driveway with ample parking space the house has attractive verandas. The extensive accommodation and plot size are as shown on the floorplan and site plan. The principal entrance to the house is from the west side porch. The front door opens into the large reception hall with its oak block floor and impressive staircase. This excellent space links all the principal reception rooms of the house and there is a guest w/c shower room. The impressive drawing room and adjoining sitting room have a southerly aspect and French doors out to the garden. An excellent family room (also with doors out) is adjacent to the kitchen with a separate dining room overlooking the front drive. There is a utility room, cellar, and a boiler room off the kitchen porch. The impressive first floor landing leads to 4 large double bedrooms (2 en suite), bathroom and single bedroom/dressing room. On the top floor are 2 further double bedrooms (one en suite) which offers access to the eave’s storage areas.
The house is set back from the road behind a generous private driveway which provides ample off-street parking. There is a single garage which was extended in 2000 to provide additional self-contained studio/office accommodation with w/c and kitchenette. The large and well-tended rear garden is an outstanding and rarely available feature in a street close to the city centre. Secure gates to either side of the house allow access to the garden which gently rises away from the house. It is over 60 meters long and 25 meters wide. There are large areas of lawn with mature beds and thanks to the trees it offers plenty of scope to create a superb play area for children. To the west of the house is a lean-to car port. There is a shed.
