Three Bedroom Semi-Detached Cottage
Church Road, Woolston - £325,000
Welcome to Alexander Cottage! A truly sensational 1800s three bedroom semi-detached cottage which is nestled within a picturesque location of Church Road in Woolston, close to seaside walks, shops and amenities. Built circa 1895, this Victorian home was designed to be spacious and comfortable, with grand proportions and a heightened sense of light, and has now been fully refurbished creating this WOW factor accommodation which has so much on offer.
Inside When it comes to relaxing indoors, perhaps the most impressive room of this beautifully renovated cottage is the grand sitting room which merges gracefully into a formal dining room, creating a welcoming space that is perfect for socialising and entertaining. With its high ceilings and dual aspect windows, it's easy to relax, enjoy fine dinners and good company, meanwhile, the cooks rustle up meals in the brand-new kitchen, that comes complete with a range of integrated appliances. To top it all off, there is a handy utility room / cloakroom, inner lobby and an impressive entrance room which immediately showcases the grandeur of this home with a feature, quarter turn staircase.
On the first floor, the master bedroom suite is impressive offering ample room for king-size bed and wardrobes. There is a large window that floods the room with natural sunlight and an ultra-modern en suite which is truly out of this world, featuring a generous walk-in shower cubicle, concealed thermostatic valves, marble tiles and an impressive, statement piece shower screen with black detailing. There are two further bedrooms, both of which benefit from rustic, Berber style carpets and a brand-new three-piece bathroom.
Outside Designed with entertaining in mind; the garden has been exquisitely landscaped to provide a fantastic area for gatherings, entertaining and more importantly Al Fresco dining. The entertaining areas in the garden flow from hub of the home, the kitchen, opening onto a shingled based seating area which offers ample room for outdoor furniture where you can enjoy sundowner cocktails on warm, summers evening with a good degree of privacy. There is side pedestrian access and a generous area of lawn with decorative shrub borders.
Location The general character of Church Road and Woolston is suburban with traces of the former rural settlement that gave it its special character in the past. Developed from a small rural settlement into substantial residential suburb, Woolston now benefits from an outstanding selection of local shops, amenities and cafés including a Lidl Supermarket (0.3 miles), Greggs Outlet (0.4 miles), Superdrug and Boots (0.4 miles). Exceptional schools are nearby including the St. Patricks Catholic School (0.6 miles) and the Woolston Infant School (0.4 miles). Other local points include: Southampton Sailing Club (0.3 miles), Weston Shore (0.4 miles), Peatree Green Nature Reserve (0.8 miles) and Archery Grounds (0.2 miles), local pubs including the Obelisk (0.4 miles), Woolston Train Station (0.6 miles) and although you can spend most days relaxing by the river and basking in the tranquil setting, the fast-paced city of Southampton is just a stone’s throw away. A short journey across the Itchen Bridge will take you to Southampton City Centre where you can enjoy a hearty meal in a traditional English pub or treat yourself to some fine dining in a Michelin star restaurant in Ocean Village, Southampton City Centre, the new Cultural Quarter and Oxford Street.
