St. Thomas, Winchester

Guide Prices from £795,000 - £1,295,000

Nine highly individual homes with layouts to suit most family dynamics have been created at St. Thomas with the skilful conversion of a Victorian Grade II listed church by highly regarded Hemdean. Each home features wonderful architectural details and original windows creating inspirational interiors enhanced by specialist design lighting systems. Luxurious bathrooms will delight and sleek Bulthaup kitchens have been designed to be practical as well as a statement in open plan living spaces.

Occupying a prominent position set back from a thoroughfare into the city, St. Thomas has private parking and landscaping softened by new hedging. Some of the homes have private outside spaces which are easy to maintain.

The attractions of Winchester city centre lie within an easy stroll including the nearby cinema and Hotel du Vin, a host of other restaurants, excellent shopping, museums, theatres and art galleries, and the mainline station with direct links to London.
St. Thomas is described by Pevsner as “the most ambitious Victorian church in Winchester”. The richness of the architectural detail is exceptional, from the colourful stained glass and tiling to the soaring arches and of course the sculptural treatment of the stone work with the foliated leaf capitals, corbel effigy’s and tracery windows.

St. Thomas and St. Clement was built between 1845-6 holding its first service in 1847. The wonderful steeple was added in 1857 prompting Pevsner to state, “The ensemble as well as the detail’s excellent”. This landmark is so significant that the spire, a 160 foot high edifice, is mentioned in Thomas Hardy’s novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles.
