'Red House' is an exceptionally well-presented detached house dating back to 1905. The property is built of brick elevations under a tiled roof and has two distinctive square bays to the front which add space and character to the sitting room and dining room on the ground floor and repeated in the two first floor front bedrooms. Other detailing reminiscent of the era include; a large welcoming reception hall with a galleried landing above, picture rails, ceiling cornice and a fitted open fire to the drawing room with traditional tiled surround. The reception hall has a fitted oak floor, as does the formal dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of cream shaker style fronted base and eye level units with solid beech worktops, integrated dishwasher, 'Bosch' day fridge, ceramic hob and double oven plus ample space for appliances. The family room is exceptionally spacious and has a fitted wood burning stove, as well as French doors opening into the garden. Ground floor accommodation is further enhanced by a utility room, cloakroom and two cellar rooms, ideal for wine storage. The first floor has two en-suite bedrooms, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, the rear gardens are defined into two sections, the main part being laid to lawn with mature shrub borders. The patio and lawn then open into a terrace with pergola creating a most private space for a BBQ and dining table. To the rear of the garden is a personnel gate that opens onto the block paved driveway, which sits to the front of a detached double garage.
Families are particularly drawn to Littleton and it has long been regarded as a top village location so close to Winchester. This is due to the thriving community and pretty Church, recreation centre with village hall, bowls, cricket, football and tennis clubs. The Running Horse Public House is situated a short walk away. Excellent shopping facilities exist on Stockbridge Road where there is a Waitrose store, as well as smaller retailers and Friarsgate Doctor's Surgery. Primary schooling at Sparsholt, Henry Beaufort & Westgate Secondary schools and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College are within easy reach. There are also excellent transport links to London by train (just an 8-minute drive to Winchester station) or road and Southampton International Airport, with the South Coast nearby for sailing, and excellent local access to open countryside for walking, cycling and riding. The house is situated next to the attractive village Church, which leads to a public footpath taking you through Littleton Stud and beyond.
Leave Winchester in a northerly direction along Stockbridge Road and continue through three roundabouts before turning right into Main Road. Bearing left, continue through the village passing the Running Horse public house on the right-hand side, dropping down the hill where 'Red House' will be found on the right-hand side.
