The property is enviably positioned in the south-west corner of the city, offering superb, easy access to the heart of the city centre itself. Internally, the property is in need of modernisation throughout, however there are delights at every turn, with an excellent array of reception spaces, bedrooms and ancillary accommodation totaling over 3750 square feet.
The house has the added attraction of lying approx. 0.5 miles to the mainline railway station for commuters to London and elsewhere and being surrounded by excellent local private and state schools for children of all ages.

This spacious property boasts many rooms with attractive period features such as picture rails, deep skirting boards and fireplaces. The principal receptions radiate from a central hall with stairs leading to the first floor. The reception rooms include a large drawing room with super bay window overlooking the front garden, and fireplace as the main centerpiece of the room. The dining room is also at the front of the house and has a door directly to the kitchen as one would hope, but also a door out to the garden. At the rear of the property is a large family room, brightly coloured with fireplace and views over the rear garden.

Practical needs are admirably catered for, thanks to an array of rooms including large utility, store/boot room and W.C. From the utility room, stairs lead down to a most useful cellar.

Additionally, access from the utility room, is the ground floor of the ancillary accommodation which could be used as a self contained annexe. This includes, kitchen/dining room, garden room and bathroom. From the utility room are stairs to the first-floor accommodation and annexed bedroom/s.

In all, there are an impressive six double bedrooms contained within the first floor, as well as a bathroom. Of particular note, is the size of bedrooms one, two and three, all with fireplaces and lovely outward views. At the opposite end of the house, there are three double bedrooms that can equally be used as part of the main house, or as part of a self-contained annexe.

The mature south-west facing partially walled garden, is a super feature of the lovely property. With lawned area, beautiful beds which are well-stocked with flowers, shrubs, pear and apple trees. The rear façade is very handsome indeed and enhanced by the visual impact of the original brick and flint construction and the later tile hung extension. The whole garden is serene and private, thanks to mature landscaping and enjoys two good size useful storerooms as well as a coal/wood store. Round at the front of the house there is a driveway, flanked by well-tended shrub beds, and a detached garage.

Directions
From the Winkworth office proceed south along Southgate Street, taking the first right into St James Lane. Take the third left into Christchurch Road and the property is the first house on the right-hand side, situated on the corner, just before the church.

Location
Christchurch Road is one of the most desirable roads in Winchester, being positioned within the St Cross area of the city, famed for its grand period houses. It is also home to Winchester College, and offers easy access to the mainline railway station (links to London Waterloo in approximately 60 minutes), and a level walk into the City with its High Street shops, boutiques, library, coffee shops, public houses, restaurants, theatre, cinema, museums and, of course, the City's historic Cathedral. The house is situated close to good local state and private schools, and the lovely water meadows offer pretty walks nearby.
