Daily Echo:

Agent Robert Tottle, of Savills Winchester, said: “This charming period home is in a tranquil setting close to Winchester Cathedral, the High Street and walks out to the water meadows of St Cross. A gem of a local store, Kingsgate Wine & Provisions, is but a two-minute walk from the front door.”

Situated near to the 13th Century Church of St Swithun and one of the city’s ancient gates leading to Winchester Cathedral, this property is in a highly attractive area of Winchester known for its narrow streets, exceptional architecture, and being within a quiet Conservation Area.

There are many lovely walks through the Cathedral streets passing the Wykeham Arms Public House and out on to the Itchen Navigation, water meadows, St Catherine’s Hill and directly on to the South Downs National Park beyond.

Daily Echo:

Winchester is an extremely sought-after location thanks to its historic centre, host of amenities and location, close to the countryside and less than an hour from London by train.

Families are drawn to highly-regarded state and private schools.
