“The north and south elevations are made from an attractive buff brick, whilst the east and west faces are clad in a standing-seam zinc cladding.”

This is an incredibly rare opportunity to build a contemporary home in the Harestock area of Winchester, positioned on a quiet residential road just under two miles from the city centre. The sale price is for the finished house, and therefore includes the cost of construction.

Planning has been approved for a detached four-bedroom house of approximately 1,936 sq ft, arranged in an attractive L-shaped plan that shelters a private rear garden. The design for the build is by award-winning T2 Architects, a Winchester-based practice established by Jeremy Tyrrell in 2007.

Accommodation is spaced across a single level, with the exception of the master suite which occupies the first floor. The front elevation provides under-croft parking, and is set behind a brick-laid hardstanding with space for another two cars. A planted border and new mature hedges will ensure privacy from the quiet no through road.

The structure is made from two principal parts; the north and south elevations are made from an attractive buff brick, whilst the east and west faces are clad in a standing-seam zinc cladding. Large areas of glazing at the rear look over a south-facing patio and garden.

The open-plan living space is loosely sub-divided into kitchen, dining and seating areas, connecting to the garden though large sliding doors. Behind the kitchen there is a utility space that has direct access to the front covered parking area.

The remaining three bedrooms, contained within one wing of the house, all look onto the rear garden. The largest of the three is equipped with an en-suite shower room.

The surrounding residential area Harestock has the atmosphere of a rural community yet is just under two miles from the centre of Winchester and the train station (which runs services to Waterloo in approximately one hour). The cathedral city is well known as one of Britain’s most attractive and vibrant small cities with a broad range of shopping, dining and cultural facilities.

The area is also known for the excellent standard of schools, including Peter Symonds sixth form college, Prince’s Mead, Pilgrims’, Winchester College, Twyford and St Swithun’s.
