New year, new home, numerous choices

In the last few days Zaza Oswald, partner in charge of residential lettings for Carter Jonas in Hampshire, reports taking a call from someone eager to rent a new home for no better reason than fulfilling their 2016 resolution that the new year meant a new home.

Renting is the easiest way to achieve this, and if your resolve is small-scale, then how about a one bedroom garden flat in the very heart of Winchester (£995 per month EPC Band C)? It makes for an easy life with its superb lounge / dining room, linked open-plan kitchen, and large double bedroom, and bathroom with shower. There’s a front garden, rear courtyard, and a feature with gold-plated appeal, a garage.

Much larger, but still great value, is a four to five bedroom bungalow in Stoney Lane (£1,850 EPC C) that is almost as close to the rail station and has a great choice of schools close by, as well as Waitrose and Aldi. With contemporary bath and shower rooms and ample living space, as well as a driveway, garage, and gardens, it’s a great family base.

For fans of a move to the country there’s an interesting mix of properties. At West Meon (£1,350 EPC D) is a newly-refurbished three bedroom detached house set among large grounds. As well as the new kitchen, there are two living rooms and a new bathroom. Winchester, Alresford, Alton, Petersfield and, therefore, London, are all within easy reach.
