Modern house nestling within historical setting

Modern house nestling within historical setting

St Cross is an ancient settlement lying on the outskirts of the city of Winchester and this is the setting for a superb detached modern house. The simplicity of the building sits well in the surroundings and from here there are lovely country and riverside walks to be enjoyed together with easy access into the city which is about a mile away.

Access to Evergreen House is via a shared driveway which leads to a car port at the rear of the property. The outside space is an important feature and doors from the inner hall and kitchen open to a beautiful walled courtyard garden. West facing, this space has been landscaped with brick paving and gravel beds with a pergola above a seating area.

Built in 2000, Evergreen House is arranged over three floors and has been elegantly refurbished throughout.

The entrance hall has doors to a good size study and cloakroom and a door opens to an inner hallway from where the stairs rise to the first floor, pausing at a half landing from where a door opens to the garden. The kitchen is a wonderful living space with French doors opening from the dining area to a large paved terrace. Beautifully fitted with a range of cream units, this is a light room and supported by a separate utility room with underfloor heating.

The sitting room on the first floor has windows to the east and west and has lovely oak flooring. On the other side of the landing is the master bedroom complete with dressing area and its own shower room.

On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms both with windows overlooking the rear garden; and a newly refurbished family bathroom.
