The Property:

The property is a particularly fine Grade II listed Regency style villa, built mid-19th century with an attractive street scene of a series of semi-detached villas. The house is stuccoed, and colour washed white with inset sash and casement windows under a slate roof, providing a delightful aesthetic as well as plenty of character internally, including polished floorboards, picture rails and fireplaces. The ground floor has a welcoming hallway with a traditional door and glazed slip above and a high-level side window which provide good natural light, as well as a cloakroom and stairs that rise to the first floor with a polished handrail. The dual aspect drawing room has French doors to the front aspect and an open fireplace with a traditional marble surround. The sitting room has French doors that lead out to the rear garden and makes a perfect television room. A dining room has another open fireplace flanked by fitted cupboards and shelving and opens into the kitchen. This is fitted with white fronted units with sleek marble worktops and in turn opens to the garden room, which is an ideal place for casual dining and again has French doors into the garden. The first-floor landing accesses three double bedrooms, the principal having a front aspect period fireplace and fitted wardrobes, served by an en suite shower room with contemporary fittings. Bedroom four can be accessed through the second bedroom or through a second staircase and is currently a lovely study with a side aspect and conservation fitted rooflights providing a light workspace. A bright contemporary bathroom completes this floor. The lower ground floor is currently fitted as a utility/store and has a window and good ceiling height. Both the front and rear gardens have been landscaped providing attractive outside space. The driveway accommodates off road parking for two vehicles (with a fitted electric charging point) and residents can apply for on street residents parking permits.

The Location:

The house lies in the heart of the city between St. James Lane and Compton Road on the western side of the northern end of the St. Cross Road. The house is therefore within walking distance of the High Street, a varied range of restaurants, the theatre, cinema, and there are wonderful walks around the Cathedral, the College, and the Water Meadows along the banks of the river Itchen. There is a shortcut to the station via Peninsula Barracks. It provides a fast commuter service to London Waterloo (circa one hour).


From the centre of Winchester proceed in a Southerly direction along Southgate Street, which becomes St. Cross Road. Turn right after the pedestrian crossing into St. James Lane and proceed for a short distance. St. James Villas are found at the second turning on the left-hand side. The property will be found on the left-hand side identified by our 'For Sale' board.
