Detached family sized home neatly enclosed behind a Privet hedge and a pair of five bar gates that open onto an expansive gravelled driveway.

To the ground floor is a good triple aspect sitting room with sliding doors that open onto the sun terrace. A pair of doors open into the well-proportioned dining room which again opens onto the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is a double aspect room with plenty of space for everyday dining. There is a separate utility room with a door into the side garden. Upstairs, the principal bedroom has plenty of fitted wardrobes and a bath with a separate shower. The three further bedrooms are all doubles and have fitted wardrobes. The bathroom again has a bath and separate shower. A big feature of this property are the stunning gardens which wrap around the house with the driveway leading to the detached double garage. The rear garden has a large, shaped terrace directly behind the house, which graduates onto the lawn which is flanked by well-stocked flower and shrub borders and several mature trees including Apple and Willow.

The Location:
Shawford lies approximately two miles to the south of Winchester, a village which 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 a restaurant, a doctors' surgery with pharmacy, two public houses and a large recreation area.

Take the first right onto Fairfield Road and continue straight until to pass the left hand turn for Cross Way.
