THE PROPERTY: This former gate house to Worthy Park House has been a private dwelling for over sixty years. It is currently a three-bedroom bungalow with a very large garden which is full of potential for developers and individuals wishing to create their own personal home for the future. Linesta is set in its own garden surrounded by private woodlands at the western end of the beautiful Itchen Valley - part of the South Downs National Park. The city of Winchester is easily accessible and is only three miles away by public transport. A perfect balance of town and country. The bungalow is in good order with ample parking facilities. The front door opens into an entrance hall and then into a second inner hallway, off which is a large through living room with dining area and a characterful stove with a brick fireplace surround. The kitchen is off the living room with a door to the dayroom at the back of the bungalow. This is a bright and airy room that currently offers a variety of uses and looks out onto the large garden beyond. Carry on through the kitchen and you'll come to the third double bedroom that could otherwise be used as a separate dining room/TV room/study. From here a small hallway opens into the bathroom where the bath has been replaced by a double shower. Finally, there are two further bedrooms. One has a door leading to the exterior and offers flexibility in the use of this room. The other bedroom includes access to the loft area where there is potential for a further small room. Outside there is a large garden that sits behind the property, and this is where you can really let your imagination run wild to create something very special. An extension to the existing property? Or maybe a complete redevelopment of the site to create a forever home? Subject to the relevant planning consents of course. With all the mains services ideally placed, various ideas including a Huf Haus have been entertained by the current owners who, we know, would be more than happy to share more details of with prospective buyers. THE LOCATION: Abbots Worthy is a pretty village located beside the River Itchen surrounded by the picturesque Hampshire countryside. There are essential amenities close at hand including a choice of good local pubs, post office and a first-class farm shop. Nearby Winchester regularly tops national listings for one of the best places to live in the UK and it's easy to see why. Living in and around Winchester you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of a cultural city and breath in the fresh air of the countryside. Excellent private and state local schools are available. Indeed, Prince's Mead preparatory school is within walking distance and Kings Worthy, Itchen Abbas and St Bede’s primary schools are within short driving distances as are Pilgrims' and Twyford preparatory schools and St. Swithun's School for girls. Peter Symonds Sixth Form College and Winchester College are within a six-mile radius of Linesta. Road links from the A33 to the M3, M27, A34 (for M4) and A31 (for M25) are on the doorstep, as are rail links to London (one hour from Winchester) and the South Coast. There are air links throughout the UK and Europe from Southampton (12 miles) and Bournemouth (40 miles). Winchester has something for everyone! Some of the best education in the country, a vibrant choice of restaurants, cafes and famous pubs, a wonderful growing community of independent shops and a plethora of leisure opportunities. Going to and from the area by road, rail or air is really accessible. The Solent, South Coast and New Forest are only 30 minutes away!! POINTS OF REFERENCE: The plot is approximately one-third of an acre (~12,200 sq. feet from the plan) All mains services: water, gas, electricity, mains drainage and communications via underground cable and direct-line-of-sight to two mobile network aerials. We think you’ll agree, this is a fabulous development opportunity and all with the beautiful city of Winchester and the South Downs National Park on your doorstep.
