Detached family house an easy walk from the city centre

This immaculate detached family house sits in a carefully planned, mature garden and is well positioned within a private and exclusive close. Wentworth Grange is a small close off Airlie Road which lies between Ranelagh Road and the base of Sleepers Hill, just a mile from the High Street and within a few minutes’ walk of the cinema and the train station.

The accommodation flows well on the ground floor with the entrance hall having doors to the beautifully fitted study, the sitting room on the other side with a bay window and open fireplace, and to the kitchen and the dining room at the rear. The kitchen is well fitted and there is plenty of space for a breakfast table. The house has been extended to create a family room off the sitting room and this has a vaulted ceiling and a fitted unit for a television and storage. There is also a utility room and a ground floor cloakroom.

Two double bedrooms on the first floor both have fitted wardrobes and adjacent shower rooms, with two further bedrooms sharing the family bathroom.

The house is easily maintained with double glazed windows and very well presented with recently fitted carpets throughout. The detached double garage is currently arranged to provide parking for one car and a raised carpeted area for use as a gym with a wall heater and down lighters. A side door opens to the garden.

There is parking for several cars in front of the garage with established shrubs and a lawn framing the house. The rear garden is east facing and nicely laid out being partly walled and partly enclosed by hedging with a number of specimen trees. With access from the dining room and family room by way of French doors, the garden plays an important role through the warmer months and a pathway leads across the lawn to an attractive sunken terrace enclosed by a low brick wall.

Nearby there are wonderful walks through the water meadows, along the banks of the River Itchen past Winchester College to the Cathedral Close. An appealing feature for families is that the house falls within catchment for Kings School.
