One of Winchester’s finest private residences, Symonds House offers an idyllic country home in the heart of the city.

Perfectly positioned in a secluded setting yet within yards of the Cathedral and High Street, this is an exceptional Grade II listed 19th Century Georgian style property.

With spectacular views of Winchester Cathedral, the home is a rare find with a multitude of classical features including large sash windows, beautiful high ceilings, feature fireplaces and ornate ceiling cornicing.

The six bedroom home also boasts its own wine cellar.

Savills Winchester are marketing Symonds House at a guide price of £4,400,000.

Steven Moore, of Savills, said: “Symonds House is a spectacular period home with warmth and character, situated within the historic Cathedral city of Winchester, which has long held appeal for its family-friendly community and accessibility to London.

"It's a landmark building in the city of Winchester, combining classical elegance with the comfort of a family home. Offering the best of both worlds, the property is located in the heart of the city, but enjoys a secluded space.

“Properties like Symonds House rarely come to market, so this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a classical Georgian home in the sought after city of Winchester.”

Arranged over two floors, the property has generous outbuildings, with a double garage. Electric gates provide security and open into a secure parking area, adjacent to beautifully landscaped gardens; walled on three sides and offering the perfect place to dine al fresco in the heart of the city.

The ground floor offers versatile accommodation with a classical Georgian style reception hall providing access to three principle reception rooms. The drawing room benefits from a period fireplace, high ceilings and beautiful views across the gardens. A generous kitchen/ breakfast room, utility, office and garden room are found towards the rear of the property. The ground floor also benefits from a well-positioned study to the front of the property, ideal for home working.

On the first floor, there is a large master bedroom suite, with views across the south facing garden and an adjoining bathroom. Five further bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the first floor.
