The Property:

Located within this prestigious address, this spacious home offers versatile accommodation arranged over two floors. The current owners have tastefully upgraded the home in recent years after carrying out an extensive refurbishment. The bright and airy entrance hall guides you into the property providing access to all principal rooms. The ground floor is home to a selection of reception rooms with the main sitting room boasting views across the front lawn and beyond. The kitchen is partially open to the sitting room via a cleverly designed opening which is ideal when entertaining. The kitchen itself has been fitted with a range of base and eye level units and has ample room for a large dining table and chairs. You will also find a study on the ground floor along with the third and fourth bedrooms which are served by a modern family bathroom. A separate utility and boot room complete the ground floor of the main residence which also provides access to the side garden. The first floor offers two en-suite bedrooms, with the principal bedroom also enjoying a dressing room. Bedroom five completes the first-floor accommodation. Currently listed as a separate dwelling, the property has the huge benefit of an attached annexe which currently has its own front door. The front door leads you into the sitting/dining room which in turn leads you into the kitchen alongside the shower room. Beyond here is a double bedroom. The annexe could be incorporated within the main dwelling via the door which could be re-opened between the bedroom of the annexe the sitting room of the main house. Externally, this detached home enjoys a real selection of outbuildings which have been used for a variety of things over the years. One of the outbuildings currently features a games room, whilst the majority are used as covered car ports. The barn has also been converted into a large garage which is a vast space and has covered parking to the front. The gardens beautifully wrap around the house and are home to an array of sections, which include a vegetable patch, greenhouse, and large lawned areas.

The Location:

Owslebury is a delightful Hampshire village which falls to the south east of Winchester, an approximate 12-minute drive away, and is within the South Downs National Park completely surrounded by glorious open countryside. Within the village is a local primary school, St. Andrew's Church, a village hall (which runs a part-time post office service), as well as the popular Ship Inn pub and a cricket ground that has been in use for approximately 150 years. There is also a vibrant community association and several parish clubs and groups. Winchester is a splendid historical Cathedral City with much character yet with a modern cosmopolitan feel. As well as national retail chains, Winchester is home to an array of independent boutique shops, fine restaurants, contemporary bars and an impressive farmers market. Schooling is typically outstanding, with the local catchment schools being Owslebury Primary School, The Westgate 'through' School and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College. Independent schools include The Pilgrims' School, St Swithun's School and Winchester College. Princes Mead and Twyford School are also a short drive away.


Leave Winchester in a southerly direction along Southgate Street/St. Cross Road. Take the first exit at the Bushfield roundabout and at the next roundabout exit first left to drop down to the traffic lights where you turn right for Twyford (beneath the M3). Continue into the centre of Twyford and at the traffic lights turn left onto Hazeley Road. Continue for circa 1.5 miles passing three grey grain stores on your left.
