Historic Winchester offers housing set amid ancient architecture

Commonly hailed as one of England's most beautiful cities, Winchester is located in the south-east of the country and is the county town of Hampshire.

The historic cathedral city is the ancient capital of Wessex and teems with various historic sites such as museums, cathedrals and monuments that illustrate its rich cultural heritage. 

One of the foremost tourist attractions in the city is the word-famous Winchester Cathedral, which has stood as a venerable place of worship for more than 900 years and is the final resting place of several early English monarchs, as well as respected writers such as Jane Austin. 

Winchester is also home to the round table of Arthurian legend, which has been housed in the Great Hall - the only remaining part of Winchester Castle - for more than 700 years. Winchester College, which was founded by William of Wykeham in 1382, is also a popular tourist attraction.

With such an illustrious cultural pedigree, it is small wonder why houses for sale in Winchester are in high demand. 

There are various types of homes and apartments available in the Highcroft area, which benefits from 27 primary schools, seven secondary schools and three colleges, making it an ideal choice for families with small children or teenagers.

Highcroft also benefits from good local and international transport links. The nearest international transport hub is Southampton Eastleigh International Airport. 

Property seekers looking for good flats to rent could also consider the Kings Worthy area, which offers a range of modern and affordable terrace homes with open plan living spaces. Kings Worthy is also a good choice for property seekers who may need to commute, as the area is within reasonable distance from Winchester Station and Shawford Station.

Well-priced terraced and detached housing for single people, couples or families can also be found around the areas of Littleton, Kestral Close, Wharf Hill and Weeke.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800683674-ADNFCR
