Available with no onward chain and situated on the outskirts of the desirable village of Compton is this attractive five-bedroom family home built circa 1935, which benefits from well-proportioned rooms throughout. Accessed via a spacious entrance hall, this detached property features three reception rooms with plenty of space for family life and formal entertaining comprising a 15ft sitting room with a coal effect gas fire, exposed brick chimney breast and bay window, a separate 16ft formal dining room and a study which could equally be used as a family room or snug. Forming the heart of the house is the delightful kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with contemporary shaker-style units and a number of integrated appliances including a larder fridge, dishwasher, built in double oven and gas hob. Completing the ground floor is a utility room and w/c.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms, including a master bedroom with dressing area and en suite bathroom. Of the four further bedrooms, one is currently used as a second study. These bedrooms share the contemporary family bathroom on this level.
Compton is considered to be one of the prime residential areas of Winchester, offering substantial properties in a desirable setting and yet it is within easy reach of Winchester city centre (3.4 miles) and the wide range of extensive amenities and excellent cultural and leisure facilities it has to offer. The area offers a number of highly regarded schooling facilities with a superb primary school in the village and a number of first-class state and private schools in nearby Winchester and Twyford, including Winchester College, Pilgrims, St Swithun’s School, Peter Symonds College and Twyford Prep. The mainline railway station in Shawford (0.9 miles) offers direct rail access to London Waterloo (about one hour). Junction 11 & 12 of the M3 provides road access to London and the south coast and Southampton International Airport offers daily flights to a variety of domestic and European destinations.
Ample off-street parking on the gravel drive provides space for several vehicles, which is well screened from the road by mature trees providing a high degree of privacy. The attractive garden features a number of shrubs and border plants providing year round interest and an expanse of lawn sweeping away from the house. The garden enjoys a feeling of seclusion due to the mature trees lining the boundary. This lovely outdoor space includes a stone-paved patio providing an area to sit and enjoy the westerly aspect, while an attractive slate chipping path leads to the rear where there is a wooden summerhouse.
