Impressive period townhouse, conveniently located in the very heart of Fulflood, moments from the mainline rail station and falling within catchment of the much sought-after Western and Westgate schools. Internally the house offers hugely versatile family accommodation with the current configuration providing four generous bedrooms, two bathrooms as well as a full-width kitchen/breakfast room. The property is set back from Elm Road behind a lawned front garden with steps rising to the front door, which opens into a welcoming hallway with doors into the sitting and dining rooms. The sitting room has a wonderful bay window to the front aspect and a fitted wood burning stove whilst both rooms enjoy stripped wooden floorboards. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully fitted with a range of contemporary white base and eye level units including a central island, all with sleek granite work surfaces over. Bi-fold doors open into the delightful rear garden. The first floor has two generous double bedrooms with an accompanying bathroom and utility area. The second floor has been subject to a fantastic 'tunnelback' extension, creating two excellent bedrooms and a shower room, with views of Elm Road and the rooftops of Fulflood. There is a generous basement that is currently used for storage, which lends itself perfectly to conversion to create an additional bedroom or reception rooms (subject to the necessary planning consents). The sunny rear garden has been arranged into distinct tiers with a lower paved patio terrace, a raised patio, al-fresco kitchen area for barbeques and pizza, a lawned children's play area and a sun terrace at the very top of the garden which captures the evening sunshine and boasts fantastic privacy and wonderful views. The tiers are interspersed with raised planters, shrub beds and borders.
Elm Road is a delightful road that has been regarded a top location within Winchester for some time due to the proximity of the railway station and all the amenities of the city centre. Excellent shopping facilities exist at Stoney Lane where there is a Waitrose store as well as smaller retailers, Friarsgate Doctors Surgery and Dean Park. There are also excellent transport links to London by train or road, whilst Southampton International Airport, the South Coast for sailing and the New Forest for walking and riding are all within an easy drive. There are lovely walks along the river Itchen through The Water Meadows and St. Catherine's Hill.
