About the property

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!!

Wonderful and Comfortable Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Sky Penthouse. It was well furnished, comfortable, clean and neat with beautiful view of Winchester. The location is very convenient, close to the train station, just a short walk to High Street, Sainsbury supermarket, shops, restaurants and historical sites. The house was well equipped with amenities we needed. The owner Gordon was friendly and very helpful during our stay. Highly recommend.
