Canon Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9JJ

Guide Price Of £1,450,000

A classic double fronted Georgian town house, superbly restored and extended fronting one of the charming Cathedral streets in the old part of and around the College.

Canon Street lies on the eastern side of Southgate Street/St Cross Road and south of College Street, Winchester Cathedral and its Close, in the very heart of ancient Winchester whose past has left a rich legacy through the city's exceptional architecture. This attractive warren of narrow streets, lined with many fascinating houses and cottages lies in the Conservation Area, quietly situated close to the walks along the water meadows. Nearby are excellent shops, restaurants including the Hotel du Vin, The Old Vine and The Wykeham Arms, Theatre Royal and Library, sports centre and cinema. By rail London is 59 minutes and the M3 motorway provides a fast link to London, 65 miles, and southbound joins the M27 for ferry terminals in Portsmouth and Poole. Southampton International Airport is about 7 miles away.

The house is a classic double fronted terraced Georgian town house certainly with earlier origins. The front of the house is symmetrical, mellow brick, with sash windows, and a central four panel front door with fan light over. The rear elevation has a mix of brick and flint with some lead work, and has been cleverly extended. The house has a tiled roof and part of the extension has a lead roof.   Within very recent years the house has been completely restored, remodelled and extended by Snug Architects. The accommodation is beautifully proportioned, full of character, yet with a very light and contemporary feel.   The front door from Canon Street opens into the entrance hall with a view straight down through into the walled garden. The cloakroom has a utility space, there is a beautiful double length drawing room, fireplace with Victorian grate and carved surround, over mantel and carved facia and hearth, built in book and display shelves, ceiling beams and French door to the terrace and gardens.

The study/sitting room has ceiling beams, wall light points and spotlights.   The kitchen/dining room is an exceptional room which has sliding picture windows opening out onto the terrace and gardens. The kitchen is fitted with white high gloss units and white laminated tops. There is a twin stainless steel sink, induction hob, extractor hood, double oven, combi microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, a coffee expresso maker and an Italian porcelain tiled floor which continues through into the hall and cloakroom. There is underfloor heating in the kitchen.   From the galleried landing the main bedroom has a walk in clothes closet and adjoining shower room. The second guest bedroom with a vaulted ceiling has an adjoining shower room.   There are two further double bedrooms and a part vaulted family bathroom.
The charming walled garden has a paved terrace, low dwarf brick walls and steps leading up onto a shaped lawn edged with herbaceous borders.   There are climbing roses and honeysuckle and a gravelled terrace/sitting area. Part of the rear boundary is formed from a section of the brick and flint City Ditch wall.
