The village of Littleton lies on the Downs just over 250ft above sea level, two and a quarter miles north west of Winchester. It sits between the Roman Road to Cirencester, B3420/A272, and the Stockbridge Road, B3049, where it joins the A30. The strong and active community is well served by a church, public house, bus service, extensive sports and recreational facilities including cricket, football, bowling green, croquet, hard tennis courts and athletics. Close by is Lainston House Hotel, first class food, coffee and cookery school, the renowned Royal Winchester Golf Course and there is good walking and cycling at nearby Farley Mount Country Park and Crab Wood Nature Reserve. The village is in the catchment area for Sparsholt Primary School and secondary schools, Henry Beaufort, Westgate, Kings, and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College. Not far, on the corner of the Stockbridge Road and Stoney Lane, is a useful parade of shops, including Waitrose, Aldi, and doctors' surgery. Winchester city centre has many excellent amenities plus a mainline station to London Waterloo and access on to the M3 northwards to London, the M25 orbital motorway and the airports or south to the M27. The A34 also provides a link northwards to the A303 and M4. The house is a charming semi-detached Edwardian house built in 1903. In 2009 the roof space was converted to an additional double fourth bedroom and second bathroom and in 2016 a two storey extension was added on the north eastern side of the house enlarging the kitchen and bedroom above. The house has attractive mellow brick elevations, part tile hung, stone quoins, inset sash windows under a hipped tiled roof. The accommodation is beautifully presented throughout, much architectural detailing has been carefully retained or added to, and this includes Victorian style fireplaces (sitting room and dining room) and bathroom suites, ornate ceiling roses, coving, picture and dado rails, all of which adds to the character of this wonderful family home. From the entrance porch a front door with leaded lights and stained glass opens into the entrance staircase hall. The sitting room has a rectangular bay window. From the hall is the formal dining room which has cupboards with book/display shelves above to either side of the fireplace. It opens off directly into the garden/music room which has a limestone floor, underfloor heating, and it also has a glass ceiling lantern. There is a cloakroom and boiler room and an exceptionally well fitted L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room, John Lewis of Hungerford units, granite worktops, oak boarded floor, with partial underfloor heating and French doors to the terrace and gardens.

At the front of the house the entrance provides parking for two cars. The mature gardens which extend to just under 275 ft in total length front to back have a high degree of privacy created by mature hedging. Adjoining the house is a paved terrace with box hedging and a rose bed, long sweeping lawns, mature shrubs, fruit trees, a classic ten-sided decagon shaped summerhouse which retains its Victorian look and feel, rose pergola, and at the end of the garden a studio/home office.
