Entrance Lobby, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Cloakroom, Cellar/Utility Room, Three Bedrooms, Bathroom, Courtyard Garden, Integral Store
Dating back to 1721, this property offers charm in abundance. Many of the traditional period details have been retained and restored, including fireplaces and original windows with sash openers. The ground floor enjoys a light and open feel, whilst having nicely defined spaces; the sitting room to the front has an exposed brick chimney breast housing a wood-burning stove. The dining room lies to the rear, adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fitted with range of painted shaker style units with marble worksurfaces and a Belfast sink. A particularly unique feature is the former side passage, which was converted many years ago and brought into the main property. Whilst adding valuable additional space to the ground and upper floors, it adds a real element of charm and intrigue. The spaces are slightly raised, with brick arches and brick barrel ceilings, and are independently lit to create cosy and atmospheric spaces, with one currently used as a study area, the other a wine store. A fixed staircase beneath the main stairs provides access to the cellar where the boiler, washing machine and tumble dryer are installed. The cellar also provides additional storage and a handy workshop area.
The first floor is home to two bedrooms, the master a wonderfully spacious room (benefitting from the extra width), and a newly replaced four-piece bathroom suite. The top floor has a large double bedroom with views to St. Catherine's Hill to the front and Winchester Cathedral to the rear.
The rear garden is fully enclosed by brick and flint walls and is a very low-maintenance outside space that has been paved in York stone with ample space for table and chairs.
From the city centre proceed in a southerly direction along Southgate Street; once through the pedestrian crossing turn left into Canon Street and the property will be identified on the left-hand side by our 'For Sale' board.
