Country houses for sale

One of Winchester’s ‘finest private residences’ is up for sale for £6.95 million — and the views won’t disappoint

Breathtaking Grade II listed Mulberry House is a spectacular property, not just in terms of location, but stylistically too, blending timeless Georgian features with bespoke interiors.

Chelsea gold medallist Hillier of Romsey has created a marvel at Grade II-listed Mulberry House in Winchester, a place that is as suited to entertaining (thanks to the pergola-covered barbecue) as it is to relaxing in the greenery surrounded by the glorious flower beds—all ‘seasoned’ with fine views of the cathedral.

The fact that the gardens are bound by ancient brick walls (also listed) adds to the charm.

Currently on the market via Savills with a guide price of £6.95 million, the Grade II listed townhouse, located in the heart of Winchester, showcases some of the finest interiors we’ve come across, with plenty to offer.

The beautiful living areas include an open-plan kitchen that flows into the orangery-style dining room, a fantastic gym area located in the basement, a striking library and eight elegant bedrooms with pretty windows that overlook the garden.
