The Property:
A fine example of a classic Victorian villa with yellow brick elevations under a clay tiled roof with inset sash windows, detailed bargeboards, ridge tiles and flared arched lintels, home to some internal character features including original mahogany shutters inside the splendid front door, which is flanked by stained glass windows.

The property had work carried out to it around fifteen years ago, and had several improvements and additions, including a new roof to the main house, but more notably the construction of the family room which has blended in very well with the original building, providing additional reception space linked to the kitchen/breakfast room by a hallway. The triple garage was also constructed at the time and has three sets of doors, providing ample garaging with parking for three cars in front. Above the garage is a self-contained apartment which would make excellent ancillary accommodation for a granny or nanny, although the property is currently let on an assured short hold tenancy at £795pcm.

The ground floor has four reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room, two cloakrooms and access to the cellar. To the first floor are four generous bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms, and two served by a family bathroom. The second floor has two bedrooms, a study, bathroom and a hobbies or play room and would also work as a separate apartment.

Outside, the front garden is planted and screened with mature trees and shrubs, and a pedestrian gate opens to the front porch and rear hall.

The rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect and is laid to lawn with flower and shrub border and has access to the garage flat and a pedestrian gate to the drive, parking and garage.

The property is now in need of improvement and once restored will make an excellent family home in this sought-after spot.

The Location:
'Rosenheim' is situated in St. Cross which is among one of the most desirable positions within Winchester. Just to the south of the City and located within minutes of the City Centre, St. Cross is particularly well known for its access to the Water Meadows and the pleasant walks they afford into the City Centre, through the ancient part of the City, the College and the Cathedral.

Communications are excellent, with the mainline railway station running a service to London Waterloo (approximately 60 minutes) and the M3, A34, A303 and M27 all easily accessible. Schools in Winchester are first class, with St. Faith's primary school nearby being highly sought after. There is a wide variety of further state and private schools in the area including Pilgrims & Winchester College a short walk away, Twyford School, Peter Symonds Sixth Form College in Fulflood and St. Swithun's School about two miles away.
