The Hollies is an attractive yellow brick double fronted house, believed to date back to 1880.
The house is elevated and set back from St Cross Road, and can be accessed from the front through the pedestrian gate and up a set of steps. The front has several mature holly trees, and is predominantly laid to gravel with attractive borders around the house. There is side access to both sides of the property.
A particular feature of the house is the mature west facing garden which has been well looked after and comprises shaped and well stocked beds that border a centralised lawn, a winding gravel path runs through the garden and provides access from the ample gravelled driveway and accesses the modern detached double garage, under a slate pitched roof. The garage has been floored and has a bespoke ladder leading into the roofed area.
From Winchester City centre, proceed along Southgate Street, which becomes St Cross Road. Travel down the road, turning right into Ranelagh Road, and first left into Edgar Road. The rear entrance for The Hollies can be found on the left hand side, identified by our For Sale board.
All mains services are connected.
