A rare opportunity to rent an impressive and beautiful ground floor apartment of this historic building. The rooms are well proportioned, with excellent ceiling heights, and there are many features resplendent of the period. The property is accessed off Canon Street by its own traditional painted front door. There is a bespoke 'Searle & Taylor' oak kitchen with marble work surfaces and integrated stainless steel appliances, including fridge, washer/dryer, dishwasher, electric hob and oven. This in turn opens into a wonderful panelled dining room fitted with bookshelves and cupboards, oak flooring and French doors that open into the garden. There is a trap door from the kitchen to a dry cellar, which offers excellent storage space. The wood panelled drawing room has an ornamental fireplace and shutters to the large sash windows. There are two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes and one with an en-suite bathroom, the other served by a separate shower room. On the south-western side is a charming walled garden paved in flagstones and enclosed by brick walls with well stocked herbaceous and shrub borders and climbers including wisteria and roses. Double gates lead into this area from Culver Road, providing secure parking for up to 2 cars, although residents may wish to apply for on-street parking from Winchester City Council. Hamilton House is located within the ancient heart of Winchester, close to the cathedral and the College, in a Conservation Area known for its narrow streets and just a short distance from walks along the nearby Water Meadows. Winchester has become renowned for its excellent shops and restaurants, including the Hotel du Vin, The Black Rat and The Chesil Rectory, to name but a few. The mainline railway station is just over half a mile from the property, and provides a service to London Waterloo in approximately 58 minutes. Road links in the area are superb, with the M3 providing a fast link to London (55 miles) and southbound joining the M27, providing access to the South Coast and the New Forest. Southampton International Airport is approximately 7 miles away. Both Winchester College and The Pilgrims' School are within a 'stone's throw', as is the Wykeham Arms.
