Winchester Road, Fair Oak
A beautiful yet deceptively spacious character home set within the heart of this popular village. Dating back to 1901, the property has been both thoughtfully extended and completely updated by the current owners and comes with a large sweeping driveway providing off road parking for numerous vehicles, a good-sized rear garden, barn style garage and workshop. Accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises a large sitting room with an open fire and wood burning stove, stunning 29ft kitchen/dining room, 17ft family room, office, utility and cloakroom. On the first floor there are then four double bedrooms including a 19ft master bedroom, beautifully appointed en-suite and modern family bathroom. To fully appreciate both the accommodation on offer and the property’s location, an early viewing truly is a must.
LOCATION The property also benefits from being only minutes away from Wyvern College which is a co-educational secondary school with academy status, is close to Eastleigh and its thriving town centre and mainline railway station, with Southampton Airport also close by and all main motorway access routes also being within easy reach.

The entrance hall has Travertine tiled flooring, stairs leading to the first floor and an under stairs cupboard. A door to one side of the hallway then leads directly through to a beautiful 29ft sitting room which has a double glazed window to the front and oak flooring, with the main focal point of the room then being the Michelmersh exposed brick open fireplace with oak mantel and inset wood burning stove.
