Property description

Tenure: Freehold


Grade II Listed detached city house, formerly the Guard House for The Peninsula Barracks and built in a pleasing Georgian Revival style.

This unique property was originally constructed to control entry to the Barracks and was used to detain soldiers at stages during its rich operational history and was converted into this unique city dwelling in circa 1996. Entry to the property is through the wrought iron gates on Archery Lane, where there is parking to the front and access to the garage, with a glazed veranda which sits on iron posts and extends along the front elevation. It was converted in a Georgian Revival style of red brick with terracotta dressings, inset sash windows under a slate roof, and a veranda on iron posts extends along the front. The rooms are full of character and beautifully proportioned. Most of the internal doors are panelled stripped pine and other internal features include authentic fireplaces, oak flooring and tall ceilings. The kitchen has painted shaker style units and various modern appliances. There is a charming drawing room with an original ‘guard room’ cell window. Additionally there is a large study/bedroom 4 and a ground floor shower room. To the side, by way of an extension to the accommodation, there is an artist’s studio or additional small reception room depending on the requirement of the purchaser. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom.

Pleasant, fairly low maintenance gardens surround the property and there is a private walled courtyard garden (previously the prisoners’ exercise yard) accessed from the drawing room/family room and garage. The courtyard has a tiled floor with raised beds. Additionally, there is an attached garage with double entrance doors providing useful storage, and at the end of the garage there is a utility area and a shelved larder/storage cupboard. There is off road parking in front of the garage.

Conveniently set within the city centre and a short walk to the railway station. There is a range of shops, fine restaurants and contemporary bars in Winchester as well as the famous Cathedral and beautiful Water Meadows. The surrounding countryside has a network of footpaths and bridleways for walking and riding. Connections are excellent as the railway station, M3, A31, A34 and M27 are within easy reach.
