Launching to the market with an open day

Hamptons is gearing up for a busy open day at this imposing detached Victorian house in Winchester. Appointments are now being made for Saturday 13 February for people to view this spacious property and get an idea of the massive potential here on Petersfield Road on the lower slopes of St Giles Hill.

The potential for the house is not only to renovate as it exists now, with superb high ceilings, deep sash windows and fireplaces, or perhaps even extending the already spacious accommodation, but there are also two current permitted planning applications. These allow an additional three bedroom dwelling within the grounds or a two storey extension and division of the property into a pair of semi-detached houses.

Ash House is well screened from the road and benefits from a generous driveway and a large detached garage. The quarter of an acre garden has a southerly aspect at the rear and there are wonderful views towards St Catherine’s Hill.

On the ground floor there are two formal reception rooms both with fireplaces and a wonderful southerly outlook over the garden and beyond. The kitchen is open plan to the dining area and also connects with a good size study and utility room with external access.

A door in the kitchen conceals a staircase leading down to a fabulous basement where the large rooms are currently arranged as a workshop, store and large games room which has a bay window and door to the garden.

The bedrooms are arranged over the first floor, accompanied by a family bathroom and separate shower room. There are four good size rooms, all double aspect and a fifth, single room, with two of the doubles having the best of the far reaching views.

Ash House is well positioned for access into the city and there are lovely walks to be enjoyed locally, and the mainline station is about a mile and a half away.

Hamptons International says that viewing on the open day is strictly by appointment and further details of the planning consents are available in the Winchester office. Offers in excess of £1,000,000 are invited. Call Hamptons on 01962 842030.
