ALL THE BENEFITS OF MODERN LIVING ENCAPSULATED IN A BEAUTIFUL, TRADITIONALLY DESIGNED HOME
Sited just off the Worthy Road, and occupying an elevated position, a sweeping entrance leads you to a pair of elegant family homes. Traditional in character and built with red brick, this classic design is contrasted with render and stone work with timber sash windows providing a finishing touch. These attractive family homes are located in the heart of Winchester, a short walk from the High Street and mainline train station to London.
Once the capital of England, Winchester is a wonderful place to live and explore. Its historic architecture, quaint cobbled streets, and close proximity to London, just over an hour away, make Winchester a very popular location. As you walk through the city it’s impossible not to be impressed by the history and architecture surrounding you. There are award-winning pubs and restaurants around every corner, and high street stores and independent boutiques in abundance. Yet within a short walk you can find yourself on some very pretty riverside paths. On the city’s doorstep you will find the beautiful South Downs National Park, a wonderful place to enjoy walking, mountain biking, riding and family days out. If you’re a lover of the Arts, Winchester has a bustling Arts scene, with its own independent cinema and two theatres. The beautiful Guildhall in the city centre has a varied programme of events, from live music and comedy, to dance. You’ll always find an art exhibition to enjoy at the Guildhall Gallery or City Museum. Every summer, families flock to the city for the Hat Fair, a street theatre festival and Winchester even has its own popular musical festival, Blissfields, which is growing every year.
