The third reception room is currently a study but would make an ideal family room. Enjoying the front aspect is the kitchen/breakfast room, which accommodates a table and accesses the utility room and sun room. The first floor is home to five bedrooms with the principal featuring an en-suite bathroom, whilst another bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms. The house has been well maintained over the years, however new owners may wish to remodel and improve. Approached over a gravelled driveway which provides plenty of parking and access to the double garage, the rest of the front garden is laid to lawn with shrub borders. The garden to the rear has a terrace directly behind the house that graduates onto a lawn, with an additional patio to one corner and well-stocked shrub borders which provide excellent privacy. There is also garden to the side of the house which will undoubtedly provide interest for children to play and has shrubs and trees, with a gate which provides access to the front garden.
The property lies in a private road to the east of the city centre which has for many years been a most sought-after position due to the individual properties. Many residents commute to London taking advantage of the scenic route over St. Giles's Hill to the mainline station in a little over a mile. The city can be approached via the same attractive wooded pathway which takes you to the base of St. Giles's Hill where there are quality restaurants including The Chesil Rectory and Kyoto Kitchen. Similarly, within minutes you can be on the South Downs Way, St. Catherine's Hill, or The Water Meadows.
From King Alfred statue at the bottom of the High Street exit the city over the river and turn right into Chesil Street. At the brow of the hill turn left into East Hill and at the fork in the road turn left into Quarry Road. Take the second left onto Northbrook Avenue and then the first right into Northbrook Close, where the property will be found in the left-hand corner.
