Owner's Comments

"This house for us was a dream come true with its mature wrap around garden, the generous sized rooms and lounges and especially plenty of light! We also love its modern but at the same time classic look."

"Chetwynd Road is a lovely family area with friendly neighbours and an excellent neighbourhood watch. It is quiet, but at the same time only a short walk to the Common and a 10 minutes bus journey to town. It is also very well strategically located for the hospital, train station and airport!"


Equidistant of The General Hospital and University Campus in Highfield, the property is also within walking distance of Southampton Common and Sports Centre. The property was constructed in 1997 by a highly respected local developer to a pleasing design and will appeal to upsizing or downsizing purchasers seeking a quality residence requiring minimal maintenance. The carefully planned accommodation features three well proportioned reception rooms and four bedrooms supplemented by a spacious kitchen/breakfast room and two well appointed bathrooms. There is the added advantage of an extensive driveway that allows off road parking for numerous vehicles together with a detached double garage.


The central reception hall offers a pleasing and welcoming entrance with a spindled staircase ascending to the first floor. Engineered oak flooring flows through to the principal reception rooms and the cloakroom is positioned on the left of the hall with a stylish modern suite. Cottage style wooden doors lead to all rooms with small paned double doors leading to the lounge. This is a reception room of impressive dimensions enjoying a dual aspect that emanates natural light with sliding patio doors leading to the garden. The marblelite fireplace features an open hearth with an ornate wooden mantelpiece and creates a pleasing focal point for the room. The separate dual aspect dining room is larger than average and is the perfect environment for entertaining family and friends and also boasts sliding doors leading to the garden. The study has a front aspect and is found on the right of the hall and is ideal for the provision of a home office. Of generous proportions the spacious kitchen/breakfast room has a pleasing social flow with ample space for informal dining. The tiled floor is evident throughout the room and the adjacent utility room.

Fully tiled walls with an inset heated anti-fog mirror and glass shelves, a chrome heated towel rail, twin mirrored medicine cabinets and a strip light/shaver socket complete the specification. Bedroom two is a comfortable double of enviable proportions with a side aspect window and ample space for wardrobes. Bedroom three is larger than average and full height wardrobes adorn one entire wall which could be removed if desired to create a larger room. Bedroom four is currently utilised as a dressing room with full height mirrored wardrobes fitted to one wall and a further double and adjacent shelved cupboard to the opposite wall.

The side and rear garden encapsulates the house and enjoys a good degree of natural privacy provided by mature shrubs and trees together with a high brick wall that defines the left hand boundary. Predominantly laid to lawn the garden also has a paved patio with sensor activated lighting that is approached from the lounge and dining room and is the perfect place for al fresco dining and relaxing on sunny days and warm evenings.
