Full description

Windrose House is an exceptional, contemporary, architect-designed house in most sought after private road of Sleepers Hill, Winchester. This highly individual house has been designed to maximise the impact of the natural light and space to produce a spacious, flexible living environment. The house has been built to an exacting standard with close attention to detail, the highest quality fixtures and fittings and many state-of-the-art features. From the roadside the house is an attractive fusion of traditional brick elevations with timber detailing and contemporary clean lines. From the rear the modern contemporary credentials are strikingly apparent with an attractive blend of brick, render, timber and zinc detailing.

The house has been designed and constructed to embrace and take advantage of the prime hillside location, displaying an appealing and more understated frontage which belies the excellent 5500 square feet of space within.

Windrose House was conceived by the current owners to create a superb living space for their family, with plenty of thought to providing practical areas to support hectic, modern family life. The property consists of many stand out features that include: triple glazed windows, underfloor heating to ground and lower floors plus master bedroom and all bathrooms and cat 5e LAN cabled to all principle rooms.

From the entrance hall to the upper bedrooms, each room has been designed to make the most of the available space. The property offers over 5500 square feet of accommodation and feels every bit of that, with grand, vaulted ceiling heights adding to the impression of light and space throughout. At the same time the rooms manage to feel homely and intimate, and there are plenty of them; in total the house boasts six reception rooms, five bedrooms and five bathrooms or shower rooms, as well as a play room, utility room, drying room, boiler room, walk-in larder, W.C., plenty of storage space and an integral double garage with electric door.

The ground floor has been designed around a very large sitting room which is a striking galleried space which draws the eye to three areas where it connects down to the lower ground floor reception area. This floor also incorporates a music room, a well-appointed double office at the front, a cloakroom and a very pleasant guest bedroom with dressing area and en-suite bathroom. A door from the main hallway leads through to the integral double garage. Both the principal staircase and a secondary staircase lead down to the super lower-ground floor accommodation. The open plan kitchen/dining/family room is simply stunning, with the family area centred around a contemporary log-burner, and with those vaulted areas up to the ground floor and three separate doors out to the gardens. The beautifully fitted, Uber kitchen is arranged around a large island with corian worktops, and includes 2 ovens, a steamer, coffee maker, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and Grohe hot tap.

There is a TV room on this level enjoying a 65 inch wall-mounted TV and the Sonos sound system which also features in other living spaces. Practical areas on this level include a large utility room/preparation kitchen, a shower room, a boiler room, drying room and walk-in larder.

The first floor has a very spacious landing which is galleried above the ground floor hall and leads to four double bedrooms and a useful linen store cupboard. The master bedroom is a wonderful large room at the rear with private balcony enjoying lovely views East to St Catherine’s Hill and even as far as South to the Isle of White. There is also an en-suite shower room, W.C and built in wardrobes. Bedroom two is another large room with striking balcony, and an en-suite shower room, while both bedrooms two and three have wardrobes and staircases up to mezzanine levels above them.

The mezzanine deck level above the two bedrooms both have doors through to a playroom between them, a room which can also be access via the main staircase.

To the front of the house there is ample parking on the block-brick driveway next to a landscaped front garden, which is separated from Sleepers Hill by electric, wooden gates complete with video intercom. The rear garden is also beautifully landscaped with a large raised patio stretching across the entire width of the plot, and offering plenty of different areas to sit and enjoy the outlook. From here steps lead down passed a small pond to the mature, lawned rear garden which is beautifully stocked with specimen shrubs and small trees.
