Best choice in the best place to live

Winchester is a frequent winner to top ranking place in surveys of the best places to live in Britain – and for the best choice among rental properties the current selection from Carter Jonas will be hard to beat.

Offering a good choice of styles and sizes, all below a monthly rent of £1,600, there is something to appeal to a wide variety of occupants.

In the city centre, a characterful two bed terraced house in Wharf Hill (£1,200 per month, EPC Band tbc) offers a great base with a south-facing garden and immaculately presented accommodation.

For those who want to go up in the world, a penthouse in Little Minster Street (£1,500 EPC C) has a roof terrace with wonderful Cathedral views accessed via French windows from its living space. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms emphasise that this is a home with a practical nature, too, while the modern kitchen has built-in appliances.

Spruced up and on parade at The Kings House in the former Peninsula Barracks is a spacious first floor flat (£1,595 EPC E) with a refurbished kitchen / dining room that makes this a real stand-out home when compared with its peers. There is a large central living room with an en-suite bedroom to one side. The second bedroom is served by a family bathroom and there is the valuable extra of two allocated parking spaces plus visitor parking.

All these city centre homes are within easy reach of the shopping centre and restaurants as well as the railway station and River Park Leisure Centre. Families happy to live slightly away from the centre, while still enjoying a good choice of schools, can opt for either of two homes.

In Olivers Battery Road North is a detached house (£1,500 EPC E) offering four bedrooms and superb living space as well as a large garden. It’s newly decorated, will have a new bathroom installed before tenants move in, and is within a short walk of St Peter’s Catholic Primary School and Kings’

School. In Priors Dean Road (£1,100 EPC) is a well presented three bedroom house with an eat-in kitchen and large lounge diner within the catchment for Henry Beaufort School.
