Sutton Scotney has appeal for all

The village of Sutton Scotney lies within easy reach of Winchester and has its own excellent local amenities which mean that this community holds a wide appeal to all. Goadsby in Winchester has recently added two lovely homes to the market for sale, each with its own features and benefits.

The first is a semi-detached house in a quiet cul de sac with views out over the garden and a village green to the front. The house has a great layout for families with a smart kitchen with a breakfast area having an open aspect to a playroom. There is also a sitting room at the front with an open fire and a dining area which also connects with the playroom.

The integral garage has been converted to provide a large store at the front and a utility room with a door through to the kitchen, further adding to the benefits for a busy family lifestyle. There is also a ground floor cloakroom.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, the largest with a good range of wardrobes, and a family bathroom.

The house enjoys open aspects to the front and rear with a gate from the garden opening to playing fields where there are football pitches, tennis court, play equipment and lovely walks along the river bank.

A price of £375,000 is quoted for this Gratton Close house.

For those looking for something with more of a period feel in the village, Northolt Cottage has sash windows and an open fire in the sitting room. The kitchen is fitted in a country style with wooden work surfaces and a deep butler sink. An alternative entrance lies to the side of the cottage into a conservatory which is currently used as a dining area, although there is also a second reception room.

Both double bedrooms on the first floor have sash windows and the family bathroom is downstairs.

The garden is a principal feature of the cottage with wonderful fruit trees and well stocked flower borders. Enjoying an excellent degree of privacy, the garden primarily faces east but also has an open sunny aspect. A price of £300,000 is sought.

Chris Pickard, manager of the Winchester branch of Goadsby, says: “Both these properties have recently come to the market in Sutton Scotney. Northolt Cottage is an excellent opportunity for first time buyers or downsizers looking to experience a charming semi-rural village, with the house in Gratton Close ideal as a family home, with generous accommodation and backing on to the playing field.

“Sutton Scotney is a lovely village with excellent local amenities, yet close to commuter routes for access to Winchester, London, Stockbridge and beyond.”
