The Property:

This is a magnificent detached family home. Dating back to the 1950's but having been cleverly extended over the years, it now boasts comprehensive family accommodation, striking the balance between modern convivial living yet with the versatility and longevity that comes from having four distinct reception rooms. The accommodation is arranged over only two floors, ensuring a perfect balance of reception space and bedroom space; four reception rooms accompany a splendid kitchen/breakfast room to the ground floor whilst five comfortable double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes, are served by two luxurious bathrooms upstairs.

Upon entry, the property immediately strikes a chord; the entrance hall is in excess of 25" deep with an uninterrupted view through to the garden. From this one central space, almost a reception room in itself, the four primary reception rooms are all accessed. The drawing room lies to the right which is a charming room with a dual aspect and a central wood burning stove. The study lies behind and is a tranquil place from which to work and overlook the rear garden. A versatile family room sits to the front of the house with an array of fitted storage and shelving whilst the dining room, fitted with another wood burning stove, opens directly into the extended kitchen; a magnificent open-plan family space with an array of units set around a large central breakfast island.

To the first floor there are five nicely balanced double bedrooms. The master has a range of bespoke fitted wardrobes and a luxury en-suite shower room re-fitted with Duravit sanitary ware and under-floor heating. Likewise, the family bathroom has been re-fitted to the same exacting standard.

Outside the property is approached across a large gravel driveway which provides parking for several vehicles. To the rear a generous garden is beautifully planted with a host of flowers and mature shrubs around a central lawned area. A raised patio extends the width of the property and offers ample space for al-fresco dining.

The property has been improved considerably over time by the current owners. An extensive program of modernising works includes the re-wiring of the house and replacement of the gas boiler and central heating system. A water softener and mains water pressure booster have both been installed to complement the newly replaced bathrooms and WC. The carpets throughout have been replaced and the property has been completed re-decorated.

Chilbolton Avenue has for many years been a prime residential setting within Winchester.
