An air of elegance

This well presented Grade II listed house has a certain air of elegance with period architecture opening to reveal spacious accommodation over four floors. The mellow brick and flint elevations with sash windows sit well on St James Terrace from where there is easy access into the centre of Winchester and it is also within a short walk of the train station.

From St James Terrace there is pedestrian access to Romsey Road and St James Lane whilst to the rear, off Crowder Terrace, there is a garage together with a parking space.

Dating back to 1840, this lovely home radiates from an impressive entrance hall, with original cornice, plaster arch and mahogany handrail, which opens to a double reception room running east to west. This fine drawing room has an open fireplace with a marble surround and slate hearth, flanked by fitted bookcases. Off a rear lobby is a study recess, utility area and cloakroom.

The large open plan kitchen and dining room takes up much of the lower ground floor which provides great entertaining space, supported by a utility room with a door to the front courtyard and wine cellars, and a family room at the rear with a door to the garden.

Five bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room are arranged over the top two floors, with the smallest room adjacent to the master bedroom at the front which has potential to be converted to an additional bathroom.

Both garden areas are easily maintained with a delightful west facing enclosed garden to the rear with mature hedging to one side and flower and shrub borders to the other including a fig tree. From the sandstone paving there are steps down to the lower courtyard and secondary access to the house.

A price guide of £1,295,000 is quoted by Belgarum Estate Agents who will be happy to arrange a personal inspection of this elegant home. Call the office on 01962 844460
