Winchester Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Four Star AA Rated Rooftop Boutique Penthouse With Great Views And Parking

The lift takes you to the top floor of this 18th century Listed Building where the Sky Penthouse welcomes you.

As you enter this warm, light filled, elegantly decorated and furnished modern apartment, your eyes are immediately drawn to the tree lined, roof top views of Winchester City.

Your footsteps take you first, on your left, to the intimate separate dining area which seats six guests comfortably.

You are then drawn into a spacious, comfortable seating area, offering large, plump, relaxing sofas, surrounded by beautiful fresh flowers, and further city roof top views.

Turn around and to your left is a well equipped kitchen. Walk a little further and you enter a mirrored vestibule. Here you will find a modern bathroom, two airy bedrooms, one with a glorious, romantic, king size bed, and the other double or twin bedroom which can be converted according to your preference. Each room offers ample storage space. A quality 4ft wide double sofa bed is in the lounge allowing the sleeping capacity to extend to six.

The care, quality, comfort and attention to detail that your hosts, Julia and Gordon Clyne, have invested here, is clearly reflected in this outstanding city centre penthouse.

Throughout your stay Gordon is often nearby to help with any guidance you may require, such as where to dine or enjoy the many entertainments the city has to offer.

You are seven minutes walk from Winchester station with a frequent service to London Waterloo, the coast and the West Country.

About Gordon and Julia Clyne

The owners, Gordon and Julia Clyne are a fun couple, Gordon has recently spent 17 years in silicon valley so he can answer pretty much any high tech questions you may have, and lives across the hall from the Sky Penthouse, and his Nebula App provided the artwork on the walls!!

Gordon and Julia Clyne purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Gordon and Julia Clyne chose Hampshire

The location in central winchester allows you to nip up to London to take in a show, and dinner, and still be home by midnight! Parking is at a premium in Winchester, but with a private garage or parking bay you will not have a worry. Its a five minute walk to anywhere in the city centre or public transport. The View is to die for and the morning sun will warm you up and put a smile on your face every day! Even though its in the city centre, the nights are quiet, and the stars are always a great view too!

What makes this apartment unique

You will find yourself gazing out the windows at the view every day!!

Fabulous accommodation!

The Sky Penthouse lived up to its fantastic name. The apartment was beautiful - clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The views across Winchester were stunning. Gordon was a great host making sure we had all the information we needed. Well worth staying here.

A superb Penthouse. Beautifully clean and everything we needed. Loved the huge mugs for our morning cup of tea and the bubbles were a welcome extra. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

Comfortable, Clean and Extremely Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The Sky Penthouse was most comfortable, clean and provided all the amenities we needed. The most important feature for us was the convenience of walking to great restaurants, shopping, local events, historical sites and even a wedding we were attending. We especially enjoyed breakfast several mornings at a lovely spot only a block away. The owners were available immediately and very attentive to a small need we had. We hope to visit Winchester again soon and wouldn't hesitate to once again request The Sky Penthouse as our home away from home.

Well located, bright and airy property

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed here following an ultra-marathon. The penthouse had everything we needed and was in an excellent location for the city centre and the train station. Gordon was an excellent host and very accommodating. Highly recommended.
