Owner's Comments

"We have loved living in this large house and were attracted to it because of the sheer size of the rooms and the space it provides. We have two balconies and often sit outside in the summer well into the evening"

"Bassett is the perfect location for easy access to the city or the motorways to travel further afield. Being at the end of a cul-de-sac means it's peaceful and quiet, we will miss it and hope the new owners like it as much as us."


The impressive and spacious accommodation approaches 2000 square feet and is arranged over three storeys being eminently suitable for a variety of family life styles including dual occupancy. The rare addition of a large front facing balcony approached from the lounge and another overlooking the attractive rear garden will ensure this flexible home appeals to a wide range of purchasers. The large integral garage could (STP) be converted to provide a self contained annexe or leisure suite.


An enclosed glazed porch has a door opening to the reception hall where stairs ascend to the first floor. A door permits access to the integral double garage and a further door leads to an excellent walk-in cellar style storage area extending the full width of the house. The ground floor double bedroom has a front aspect and offers the opportunity to be used as a home office being served by the adjacent cloakroom that is large enough to accommodate a shower if desired.

At first floor level the spacious landing greets you with doors allowing access to all rooms and a further staircase rises to the second floor. A front aspect window provides natural light and the airing cupboard offers useful storage space.

The lounge is a generous reception room centred around a stone fireplace that has a coal effect gas fire. It boasts sliding double glazed doors allowing access to the 26' balcony that enjoys a view over the cul-de-sac and an external power point is installed. The separate dining/family room has been extended to create an impressive larger than average room incorporating a deep bay window with sliding patio doors overlooking the rear garden. The dual aspect kitchen comprises a range of wall and base units with complementary work surfaces that incorporate a single drainer sink unit and a mixer tap. The window positioned over the sink offers an attractive view of the garden and the side elevation glazed door opens to the patio. Fitted appliances include an oven/grill with a four ring gas hob and an extractor hood and space is available for a dishwasher and fridge. A fan heater and under floor heating is provided. The adjacent utility room continues the range of wall and base units with a single bowl sink unit and has plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble drier together with the boiler. Positioned on the left of the landing are two double bedrooms whilst the fully tiled bathroom displays a three piece suite that is well fitted with toiletries and medicine cabinets and a shower positioned over the bath.

The second floor landing continues to demonstrate the size and flexibility of this large family home with an open area on the right that has two skylights emanating natural light and a low level door permits access to a superb eaves storage cupboard. This area provides an excellent study, dressing room or gym area and could be enclosed or combined with the adjacent large double bedroom. The master bedroom is more than comfortable in size boasting lovely views over the rear garden and a door leads to a superb walk-in roof storage space with a further range of fitted wardrobes adorning one entire wall. The en-suite bathroom is tastefully appointed with a white three piece suite and fully tiled walls. The adjacent bedroom could be utilised as a nursery or dressing room serving the master bedroom and has the added advantage of glazed doors leading to the balcony that overlooks the rear garden.


The brick paviour driveway offers parking for several vehicles with twin up and over doors opening to the integral double garage that has power, light and a tap. The front garden is laid to lawn interspersed with shrubs and mature trees creating an attractive sylvan setting. Steps found on the right of the house lead up to the rear garden that is an outstanding feature of the property. An extensive paved patio provides the perfect place for al fresco dining and relaxing on sunny days. A light, tap and power points are installed. The remainder of the mature rear garden is laid to lawn with a host of mature shrubs and trees that provide superb Spring blossom and create a pleasing vista with a sylvan outlook.


Bassett is a highly sought after residential area due to the close proximity of The University campus that provides numerous facilities including The Jubilee sports complex that has an indoor swimming pool. The Turner Sims concert hall and popular Nuffield Theatre are also found nearby that host a varied programme of cultural events. The Common, Sports Centre and City Golf Course are within a short distance and provide excellent recreational open space. Access to the M27/M3 motorway network is close by and The Parkway railway station provides a fast route to Waterloo. Local shops are found in Winchester Road whilst the city centre is only two miles distant boasting major high street facilities and the West Quay shopping mall and cinema restaurant complex.
