Culver is a characterful 1950's detached property with 3 bedrooms, a large front garden with plenty of much sought-after driveway parking for several cars, a garage and a west facing rear garden that backs onto school fields.
This lovely property was first built in 1958. It was designed by the original owner, who, at the time, was the headmaster of Romsey C of E Boys' School. The land on which Culver is built had previously been the kitchen gardens to Romsey Hospital (this used to be next door, on the north side of Culver, to its right as you look from the road) before it was sold and the hospital rebuilt in the early 1930's on Winchester Hill. The kitchen gardens used to provide fruit and vegetables for the patients. The family owned the property for 50 years until it was sold to its present owner.
Now available once again, this is the perfect opportunity to put your own stamp on this unique property and to create a fantastic home. A little bit of modernisation and updating may be required inside, but apart from the addition of a conservatory and a front porch, the building itself has remained unaltered since 1958.

The owner's opinion
"We have loved living here. Culver is a character home in a beautiful quiet location backing on to school fields and yet is less than a 5 minute stroll into the Market Square with its abundance of shops, pubs and restaurants, and about the same distance to the memorial park next to the River Test. We've enjoyed summer evenings and lazy Sunday mornings listening to the Abbey bells ringing."
