Historic house with wealth of features

When it comes to distinctive homes in the city, it’s doubtful anything comes close to a property in one of Winchester’s most secluded and historic locations.

The Grade 1-listed house in The Inner Close (£4,950 per month, EPC exempt) has been comprehensively refurbished in recent years but with wood panelling and stained glass details it’s doubtful anything else currently available in the lettings market brings such a wealth of features.

With four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two reception rooms, the house is perfectly geared for 21st Century life despite its ancient origins, especially as it comes with much-prized parking spaces in central Winchester.

In complete contrast is The Lodge at Farleigh Wallop (£2,000 EPC Band B), a newly-built to a very high specification, three bedroom, two bathroom home with three reception rooms and great architectural style. There’s driveway parking and a large garden – the rent also includes the services of a gardener.

Those who dig tending their own plot may be more appreciative of the approximately 1.5 acres at Park Farm House, Over Wallop (£2,995 EPC Band G), which has a wonderful rural location just down the road from Grateley with its fast commuter trains to London. In addition to the main house accommodation of four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three reception rooms there’s also a self-contained studio that’s perfect for guests, a housekeeper, granny, or nanny!

More compact, but still loaded with style, is a pretty brick and flint cottage at Hambledon (£1,750 EPC Band D), which comes with an alluring set of triples – three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three reception rooms but these can mixed and matched to suit individual requirements. For those who think country life demands an Aga and a woodburner, this cottage has both.
