IT'S a superb Grade II listed character property in one of Winchester's most desirable locations - and it's up for sale for a cool £1.65 million.

The Georgian style period home in the historic heart of the city has an attached annexe and rarely available garaging and off road parking.

Malthouse is located in Canon Street, one of Winchester’s most prized residential streets.

Set on three floors, it has a wealth of picturesque period features and has been carefully maintained in order to preserve its exceptional heritage and character.

The main house includes a number of feature fireplaces, wooden wall panelling, high ceilings and classically detailed staircases.

From a welcoming entrance, double doors open into an inner reception hall leading to a formal reception room to each side, both with fabulous period features and feature fireplaces. The ground floor extends through to a kitchen / breakfast room and office beyond, and through to the garden room.

The bedrooms are arranged across the first and second floors, each of double proportions and having either access to a bathroom or shower room. The upper floor bedroom could equally be used as a games room or snug. From the upper floors, the home enjoys stunning views of Winchester Cathedral.

The two single garages each have the convenience of a remote electric door operation, allowing for off-road parking, which is in addition to driveway space and the availability of a residents’ permit.

The rear walled garden is an absolute delight with relative seclusion and tranquillity. There are well stocked flower beds, a lawn area and a covered seating area.

Jon Lacey, of Savills Winchester, said: “51 Canon Street is a truly special home which offers additional attached accommodation to the principal residence, comprising two further bedrooms, open-plan living space and a bathroom.

"Properties offering such extensive and flexible accommodation are highly uncommon in such a central location – and by combining this with its immense period charm and the rarity of the parking and garaging provision, this makes for a very exciting opportunity which is anticipated to generate plenty of excitement in the local market.”

Malthouse is being marketed by Savills Winchester at a guide price of £1.65 million.
