Splendid Georgian town house in Winchester

Mulberry House is a Grade II listed family home with magnificent views of Winchester Cathedral.

Situated in the heart of Winchester, Mulberry House has 17th-century origins and takes its name from a mulberry tree supposedly planted by Charles II, and sadly uprooted by the 1987 storm. Today the property is Grade II listed and has been substantially extended and meticulously renovated by the current owners, boasting bespoke boasts finishes throughout.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and features three fine reception rooms, a panelled library, a study, eight bedrooms, five bathrooms and a splendid orangery-style kitchen extension that makes the most of the marvellous views of the cathedral. The dining room is particularly wonderful with an 18th century oak floor and open stone fireplace. There is also the added benefit of a large wine cellar beneath the property, with Qualitair temperature and humidity control and automatic lighting.

Country LifeOutside, the landscaped gardens are much to be admired. Designed by Hilliers of Romsey (gold medal winners at the Chelsea Flower Show), beautiful flower beds surround the terrace and lawn. Enclosed within the garden’s Grade II listed brick walls is also a delightful summerhouse and pergola covered barbecue, ideal for entertaining on balmy summer evenings.
