Modern 4 bedroom house in Winchester with large garden, close to amenities

Boasting the UK's largest farmers' market, one of Europe's biggest Norman cathedrals and a host of excellent restaurants and cafes, Winchester is a great base for exploring the South Coast of England and the New Forest.

London is 1 hour away by train (four trains per hour into London Waterloo) and you can also reach Southampton, Bournemouth and Weymouth by train. You can also visit Stonehenge (35 minutes), Oxford (50 minutes), LegoLand (50 minutes) and the Harry Potter Studio tour (1 hour 10 minutes) with ease.

With young children, we would prefer swaps with other families so that we can exchange car seats, bikes etc, but all offers are very welcome and we'll consider any location.

Our house was built in 2017 and is detached with a good size garden. It has four bedrooms, all upstairs:
- Main bedroom with king-size bed and ensuite bathroom with double sink and shower (bedroom plus ensuite together are 6m x 6m)
- Second bedroom with another king-size bed
- Bedroom 3 with a single bed and pull-out single bed underneath
- Bedroom 4 with a toddler bed (suitable up to about age 5)
There is also a family bathroom with bath, shower and sink upstairs.

Downstairs we have a large open-plan kitchen/dining/family space that has bi-fold doors opening onto our garden. Our kitchen is well-equipped with two ovens, a dishwasher, fridge-freezer, and an induction hob for cooking. We have a separate utility room with washing machine and a heated clothes dryer, a separate living room with television, a small playroom full of children's toys, and a downstairs bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. We have a garage with bikes (adult and childrens) and a bike trailer that you could borrow.

The garden has a trampoline, swing and other children's toys.

We are situated 400 metres from a row of shops including two supermarkets, restaurants and takeaways, a pharmacy and doctor's surgery. It is 20-30 minutes walk from the centre of Winchester and the train station. Alternatively, there is a regular bus service (every 10 minutes) into the city centre that departs from just around the corner.
