Exquisite detached family home in a private setting in the heart of the Southdowns estate in Shawford. Designed and constructed as part of a small, select development less than 5 years ago, this property boasts opulent and well-balanced accommodation behind a traditional double-fronted façade. Behind the handsome exterior, arguably the most impressive feature is the magnificent entrance hall with a central split staircase rising to the first floor. The kitchen/dining room is located to the rear of the property; a light open space equipped with an extensive range of contemporary units around a large central island and appliances including twin ovens, induction hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and wine fridge. This provides access into the garden via the beautiful orangery.
The sitting room boasts impressive proportions around a central wood burning stove. The family room and study complete the extensive reception accommodation to the ground floor. To the back of the property a large utility room is accompanied by a ground floor shower room; perfect for families with children or pets.
The principal bedroom is an impressive space with a range of fitted wardrobes, a dressing room, and a luxury five-piece en-suite with twin basins. The two guest rooms are each partnered with beautifully appointed en-suite shower rooms, whilst bedrooms four and five are located beside the four-piece family bathroom.
Outside the private driveway is secured by a remote-operated sliding gate and offers parking for numerous vehicles. The double garage has twin doors, loft storage and a car-port beside. The plot in its entirety extends to in excess of one third of an acre, with the majority lying to the rear; a wide south facing expanse mostly laid to lawn, with a large paved patio area, brick planters and mature shrub borders.
Shawford lies approximately two miles to the south of Winchester, and the village is synonymous with substantial properties, gardens and impressive countryside views. The M3 motorway is easily accessed, and Shawford is blessed with a mainline rail station serving both London Waterloo, and Southampton airport and central stations, whilst Shawford Down is adjacent for stunning walks. Amenities in nearby Compton Street comprise a Church and a Church of England primary school. On Compton Down there is a first-class recreation area with pavilion, tennis courts and football and cricket pitches. In the nearby village of Twyford there is the well-known Twyford Preparatory School and local Church of England primary school. There is also a very good Post Office/store with restaurant, a doctors' surgery with pharmacy, two public houses and a large recreation area.
