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 and intriguing initially, thanks to its beautiful red-brick elevations and combination of superb arched windows and doors on the ground floor and wooden sashes on the first floor, internally it is equally impressive thanks to its striking, elegant décor. The property charms and fascinates as one moves from elegant room to elegant room. The balance of accommodation is just right, with three reception spaces on the ground floor and five bedrooms on the upper floors each with their own bathrooms. There is a great deal of flexibility on offer, with two of the bedrooms connected to the ground floor by a separate staircase, allowing for ancillary accommodation, perhaps for relatives, if so desired.

Each room has been lovingly crafted by the owner, designed to make the most of the wonderful, original period features such as wooden beams.

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 cosy and intimate.

Ground floor rooms are centred around an elegant dining hall, accessed via a striking, arched front door. An impressive archway leads through to the sitting room, which features a working duel fuel burning stove, built in shelving surrounding the archway and two pairs of striking patio doors out onto the south-facing courtyard. A kitchen/breakfast room with magnificent island, large butler sink and marble worktops occupies the space on the other side of the hallway, whilst a utility room, downstairs WC, larder and family room all flow from here. The whole of the ground floor is served by underfloor heating beneath micro cement flooring, keeping it warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

The first floor has a spacious hallway enhanced by high ceilings and wonderfully crafted banisters. Three double bedrooms on this level are individually and tastefully designed and boast beautiful oak floorboards. All three bedrooms are complete with beautifully presented en-suite shower rooms and each has a mezzanine floor with either clawfoot bath or boxed in tiled bath.

There are a further two bedrooms connected to the first floor by a separate staircase both with high vaulted ceiling. Bedroom One is a double with a large area currently being used as a dressing room space, an en-suite shower and separate bath and mezzanine floor. The second bedroom is yet another double with en-suite shower room and mezzanine floor.

Outside, the beautifully tended, south-facing courtyard is a lovely place to relax and enjoy a variety of plants and hanging baskets.

The property also comes with a parking space directly next to the house and another parking space a couple of minutes walk away.

Location:
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.

Directions:
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.
