Built in circa 1895, this handsome home has an abundance of character and is presented beautifully throughout. From the gravel driveway a pathway leads you past an array of mature shrubs and borders to the front door, and into the spacious entrance hall. From here you can access the drawing room which was an addition in 1971 and offers a peaceful retreat with a beautiful aspect over the lawned side garden. The hallway continues along past the study and into the garden room which enjoys French doors out onto the private enclosed garden. The formal dining room would equally make a great guest bedroom should you wish. Bedroom two is located on the ground floor with en-suite shower room. To the eastern side of this substantial home you will find the kitchen/breakfast room which homes a range of base and eye level units, wood block worksurfaces and ample space for a dining table. A utility room is located just off the kitchen. The family room is a particular feature of this home with a wonderful high vaulted ceiling, creating a superb place for entertaining. Above the garage is the former hay loft, which is a little secret of this property and could be used as an office. Stairs rise to the first floor which boasts three double bedrooms, with the master benefiting from an en-suite shower room and dressing area. An additional bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms and completes the first-floor accommodation
Four sections of garden wrap round the property, capturing sunshine all day. The gardens host a beautiful selection of fruit trees, climbers, mature flowering shrubs and roses to name a few. The front garden is pretty and creates the perfect approach to the property with trellis and archway with flowering climbers
The current owners have transformed the home since their purchase in 2006, thoughtfully extending, refurbishing and re-modelling the property to create a splendid characterful family home.
Families are particularly drawn to this area which has been regarded a top location within Winchester for some years, largely due to good schooling at Weeke Primary and Henry Beaufort Secondary and with Peter Symonds VI Form College very close by. Excellent shopping facilities exist at Stoney Lane where there are Waitrose and Aldi stores, as well as smaller retailers and Friarsgate Doctors' Surgery. There are also excellent transport links to London by train (the station being a 20-minute walk) or road and Southampton International Airport, the South Coast for sailing and the New Forest for walking and riding are all within an easy drive.
Exit the City via Andover Road. Proceed down the hill passing Stoney Lane on the left-hand side and continue along for a short distance. Turn left into Grove Place and the property will be found at the end of the road.
