Set behind a wonderful period façade the current owners have created a wonderful family house, with a fantastic open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room which is over 40' in length and is flooded with an abundance of natural light from two large roof light windows and bi-fold doors onto the west facing terrace. The kitchen is from 'Roundhouse' and incorporates an island unit with breakfast bar and induction hob, which neatly delineates the dining area. There are two dishwashers and two ovens and space for a large American style fridge/freezer. The entire space has a resin floor with underfloor heating, the sitting area enjoying a glass fronted real fire. There is a separate family room with a wood-burning stove and a beautiful bay window, which could also become a formal drawing room. The separate utility room houses the boiler. There is a downstairs cloakroom and deep under-stairs storage cupboard which will facilitate buggy, bike and scooter storage.
The first floor has three double bedrooms; the largest to the front with large windows flooding the room with the morning sun, fitted wardrobes, a grey marble fire surround and French doors that open to a balcony. The two other bedrooms on this floor look over the rear garden and sedum roof of the ground floor kitchen extension. These rooms are served by a wet room and bathroom. The second floor has two additional double bedrooms served by a bathroom with separate shower and a large landing accommodating space for a washing machine and dryer. The bathrooms are from 'Fired Earth'. The property has had new plumbing/electrics throughout. There is also planning permission to convert the loft into another bedroom and to build a smart garage at the end of the garden with a flat below.
The garden is currently being landscaped by 'The Marylebone Garden Company', creating a patio area at the bottom with built-in seating, steps to a lawn with flower beds either side and a new timber staircase on the left-hand side at the back. At present our clients plan to install high quality imitation grass but would happily use turf if a prospective buyer prefers. The temporary wooden fence at back is being replaced with a smarter fence with planting at the top.
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. The city centre and its amenities offer first class shopping, a varied range of restaurants, cinema, theatre and sports centre. 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 VI Form College and St. Swithun's School about two miles away.
Proceed in a southerly direction from the city centre along Southgate Street which becomes St. Cross Road. Turn right into Ranelagh Road and first left into Edgar Road. The parking for the property can be found on the left-hand side, identified by our 'For Sale' board. The parking space steps down into the garden and leads to the house.
