This unique and characterful house is conveniently set within the heart of Winchester city.
Dating back to approximately 1460, this Grade II listed property was, we understand, once occupied by the chief stone mason of Winchester Cathedral. Occupying an enviable central position within the city, this charming home offers a unique blend of character-infused living accommodation and a large, stunning terraced rear garden with excellent views and a heated pool. The internal accommodation is surprisingly spacious and provides accommodation of almost 2300sqft. The layout currently offers a cosy sitting room to the front of house which in turns leads you through to the comfortable open-plan kitchen/dining room. Laid out perfectly to include an office if required, the room also provides excellent storage and a ground floor shower room leading off. There is also a separate drawing room, again filled with character and a dramatic fireplace. A spiral staircase leads to the first floor which houses four comfortable bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom with wood flooring and a roll top bath. There is also further space with an attic room providing excellent storage. Externally, the garden is circa 140 feet in length and provides separate areas including a pool and summer house towards the top of the garden which is extremely private considering the property is centrally located. Permit parking is available.
