The ground floor provides a first-class floorplan for family living and entertaining alike, and has an open plan 'live in' style kitchen/dining room with sleek grey aluminium sliders that open into the west facing rear garden. The kitchen is fitted to one end with white high gloss units, stone work surfaces and an island that neatly delineates the dining and sitting space from the kitchen. Behind this space is a separate sitting room which has a fitted wood burning stove and provides a cosy space. To the front of the ground floor is a study and a family room, which would also work as a fifth bedroom. A separate utility room keeps appliances out of the way and this is next to the cloakroom. The master bedroom has a large window overlooking the garden and has plenty of fitted wardrobe space and an en-suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and an eaves storage cupboard on this level. Externally there is a driveway for up to four cars and a separate garage, whilst the garden to the rear has a terrace directly behind the house which graduates onto the lawn beyond which is a raised garden with the studio/home office.
Whiteshute Lane is a quiet leafy lane within sought after St. Cross which is among one of the most desirable positions in central Winchester. Just to the south of the city, St. Cross is particularly well-known for its access to The Water Meadows and the pleasant walks both the city and country alike, encompassing the ancient parts of the city, the college and Cathedral. The property itself is in a very private position with no houses visible to either the front or the rear. The city centre and its amenities offer first class shopping, a varied range of restaurants, cinema, theatre and sports centre. Communications are excellent, with the mainline railway station running a service to London Waterloo (approximately 60 minutes) and the M3, A34, A303 and M27 all easily accessible. Schools in Winchester are first class, with St. Faith's primary school nearby being highly sought after. There is a wide variety of further state and private schools in the area including Pilgrims and Winchester College a short walk away, Twyford School, Peter Symonds Sixth Form College in Fulflood and St. Swithun's School about two miles away.
Proceed in a southerly direction from the city centre along Southgate Street which becomes St. Cross Road. Turn right into Lower Stanmore Lane and Whiteshute Lane will be found second turning on the left and the property will be found on the right-hand side.
