Originally forming part of Winchester College, number 23 and its immediate neighbours were sold off in 1962 and are all now owned as separate dwellings. This delightful home has well-proportioned accommodation over three floors having been beautifully refurbished by the current owner over the last five years. The ground floor has a drawing room to the front with a bay window, open fireplace flanked by bespoke bookcases and ceiling cornice. The well-proportioned sitting room sits behind and is open plan to the kitchen/dining room which has been beautifully extended into the side return and fitted with rooflights that provide a good level of natural light. The hand painted 'Neptune' kitchen and island unit have marble worktops over. The island unit has a fitted gas hob and breakfast bar, whilst the bank of units home the sink, oven and microwave. There is also a larder cupboard and space for an American style fridge/freezer. There is a pretty sash window and grey wood door that open into the garden. A downstairs cloakroom finishes off the ground floor offering. The first floor accommodates two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and refitted shower room. The top floor has a large double bedroom and a glimpse of St. Catherine's Hill. Outside there is a small garden and gate opening onto the front. The rear garden is enclosed to one side by a flint wall and the other side a brick wall. The garden is hard landscaped for ease of maintenance, and makes for a lovely space to enjoy a coffee or glass of wine with a covered pergola and a gate providing rear access.
This property is within a comfortable stroll of the High Street and station, and on the door step of the beautiful Water Meadows and St. Catherine's Hill. Winchester College and The Pilgrims School are a little more than a stone's throw away, as is The Wykeham Arms and Kingsgate Provisions.
Proceed in a southerly direction from the City Centre along Southgate Street, which becomes St Cross Road and the property will be found on the left-hand side.
