A perfectly positioned and beautifully presented period cottage in the very heart of the City Centre, overlooking the 12th Century Wolvesey Castle. Internally the property is impeccably presented, having been comprehensively modernised by the current owners in recent years, Improvements include an extension to the rear, replacement kitchen and bathroom, refurbishment to the sash windows and extensive internal decoration. A beautiful landscaped garden lies to the rear of the property facing dew south as is overlooked by Wolvesey Castle and the original flint wall that surrounds it. We also understand there to be scope to convert the loft space to create a bedroom and en-suite, within Permitted Development Rights.
Colebrook Street is positioned right in the heart of the City Centre, just to the east of Winchester Cathedral and with immediate access onto the High Street and Cathedral grounds.
The agents have sought advice from the Planning Office of Winchester City Council who confirmed on Monday 16th April 2018 that a loft conversion would fall within the Permitted Development Rights afforded to this property. Should the scope of the desired works by a purchaser exceed that of a simple conversion (extension or addition of dormer window, for instance) planning permission may be required and as such we would advise them to seek separate advice from the local authority.
