The Property:
'White Lodge' probably dates back to the 1960's and is a well-proportioned detached property with almost 1,500 ft² of accommodation over a single level. The property has bright and spacious accommodation and now lends itself to upgrading and improvement or redevelopment. The gardens extend to .94 acre and wrap neatly around the property. Enclosed to the front behind a post and rail fence and five bar gate with a driveway that accesses the spacious detached double garage, which sits to the southern side of the plot. The rear gardens gently rise to the east allowing excellent views over the whole plot to the neighbouring valley and ensuring excellent sunsets from the west.

The Location:
Owslebury is a delightful Hampshire village which falls to the south east of Winchester, an approximate 12-minute drive away, and is within the South Downs National Park completely surrounded by glorious open countryside. Within the village is a local primary school, St. Andrew's Church, a village hall (which runs a part-time post office service), as well as the popular Ship Inn public house and a cricket ground that has been in use for approximately 150 years. There is also a vibrant community association and several parish clubs and groups. Winchester is a splendid historical Cathedral City with much character, yet with a modern cosmopolitan feel. As well as national retail chains, Winchester is home to an array of independent boutique shops, fine restaurants, contemporary bars and an impressive farmers market. Schooling is typically outstanding, with the local catchment schools being Owslebury Primary School, The Westgate 'through' School and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College. Independent schools include The Pilgrims' School, St. Swithun's School and Winchester College. Princes Mead and Twyford School are also a short drive away.
