The Property:
The property is a particularly fine Grade II listed Regency style villa, built mid-19th century with an attractive street scene of a series of semi-detached villas. The house is stuccoed and colour washed white with inset sash and casement windows under a slate roof; it offers charm and character both internally and externally. The ground floor has a welcoming hallway with a traditional door and fanlight, cloakroom, a dual aspect drawing room with original ceiling cornicing and an open fireplace with 'Jetmaster' fire. The dining room opens into the refitted kitchen and study, both of which have doors that open into the garden. The first floor has a spacious landing with three bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and a box room/dressing room off bedroom two which could create an excellent en suite (subject to any necessary consents). A bathroom completes this floor. The lower ground floor has a sitting room with a window, radiator and good ceiling height; this could be used as an occasional bedroom. Both the front and rear gardens have been landscaped providing attractive outside space. The driveway accommodates off road parking for two vehicles and residents are able to apply for on street residents parking permits.

The Location:
The house lies in the heart of the city between St. James Lane and Compton Road on the western side of the northern end of the St. Cross Road. The house is therefore within walking distance of the High Street, a varied range of restaurants, the theatre, cinema, and there are wonderful walks around the Cathedral, the College, and the Water Meadows along the banks of the River Itchen. There is a shortcut to the station via Peninsula Barracks. It provides a fast commuter service to London Waterloo (circa one hour).

Directions:
From the centre of Winchester proceed in a Southerly direction along Southgate Street, which becomes St. Cross Road. Turn right after the pedestrian crossing into St. James Lane, proceed for a short distance and St. James Villas are found at the second turning on the left-hand side. The property will be found on the left-hand side identified by our 'For Sale' board.
