Property description

Thornbury Avenue is a highly sought after residential address with an appealing range of traditional detached family homes found within walking distance of The Common, city centre and railway station.

Owner's Comments

"We moved to this house so our children could attend the excellent King Edward V1 School which is a 200 Metre walk away. The school is rated in top 50 in UK from their results. The Southampton Central station is a 15 minute walk away and then 1 hour 10 minutes to London Waterloo. Mayflower Theatre is also 15 minutes walk away. Southampton common is a 3 minute walk away.”

“Both of us are keen on nature and gardening, so the garden made us feel as if we lived in the countryside and we have nurtured the wildlife in the garden; with birds, bumble bees, butterflies, squirrels and a hedgehog, with the wildflower plantings and a small pond.”


This particular property is offered for sale with no forward chain and will therefore appeal to purchasers seeking an early completion date. A grand entrance hall, two generous reception rooms and an open plan kitchen/breakfast room are accompanied by a conservatory on the ground floor. Four double bedrooms, an en-suite shower room and family bathroom are supplemented by a sizeable loft room that (stp) could be sub-divided or adapted to provide an en-suite facility. The mature rear garden has an attractive outlook and the garden home office will appeal to "work from home" purchasers.


The wide verandah style porch has original floor tiles and is adorned with a mature wisteria. The part glazed door opens to the generous reception hall that creates a favourable impression when entering this spacious home. Stripped pine floorboards, ornate architraves and the original staircase combine to enhance the traditional feel of the interior. The inner hall has a full height stripped pine cupboard and a shower room is positioned on the left of the hall. Boasting a deep wide bay window, the lounge is a comfortable reception room and the decorative open fireplace has a wooden mantelpiece that is a pleasing focal point for the room. The separate dining room is a large room boasting stripped floorboards and offers the option of an additional sitting room or ground floor bedroom. A bay window incorporates French doors that open to the patio. The breakfast room has ample space for a table and chairs for informal dining and the peninsular unit creates a natural division with an open aspect to the kitchen that provides excellent social interaction with guests or young children. Featuring a modern range of wall and base units that have hardwood work surfaces that incorporate a sink unit and a mixer tap, the kitchen has fitted appliances that include a dishwasher, a range style cooker and an American style fridge/freezer. An open aspect leads to the conservatory that is the perfect addition to the ground floor layout and enjoys attractive views and opens to the large patio. The adjacent utility room has a work surface with an inset sink unit, double wall cupboard and plumbing for a washing machine.

The first floor landing has a spindled balustrade and a full height double airing cupboard with a staircase leading up to the loft bedroom. Positioned at the rear of the house the master bedroom has an approach corridor with a good size double wardrobe and enjoys an attractive view of the garden being served by an en-suite shower room. Of generous proportions bedroom two is larger than average and features a deep wide bay window with a front aspect. Bedroom three is a comfortable double with views over the garden, two full height fitted wardrobes and a wash basin. Double in size bedroom four features an oriel bay window with front views. The spacious family bathroom displays a modern white four piece suite. The large dual aspect loft bedroom has the option (stp) to be sub-divided or could provide an en-suite facility. Low level doors permit access to useful under eaves storage space.


The brick paved driveway allows off road parking for two vehicles and double wooden doors lead to the garden store that is positioned on the right hand side of the house. The remainder of the front garden comprises mature shrubs and trees that create natural privacy and a path with a pedestrian gate is found on the left that leads to the rear garden.

Enjoying a delightful leafy outlook that is rarely seen so close to the city centre, the rear garden is an outstanding feature of the property. A large paved patio is approached from the conservatory and dining room and is the perfect place for al fresco dining and relaxing on sunny days and warm evenings. A door allows access to the garden store and a potting shed is found on the right hand boundary whilst a pergola is adorned with climbing plants. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with a host of mature shrubs that provide an established natural feel and a garden shed is found in the top right corner. Nestling in the opposite corner is the charming summer house that is an ideal home office or hobbies/reading room and electricity is connected.


Shirley has proved to be a popular residential area due to the close proximity of The Common, Sports Centre and City Golf Course that all provide excellent recreational facilities. The city centre is approximately two miles distant and the Central railway station is found just off Commercial Road. Access points of the M3 and M27 motorway networks allow fast lines of communication to London and regional towns and cities whilst the Parkway railway station is found at Junction 5 of the M27 (opposite the International Airport) and provides access to London Waterloo in approximately one hour. A variety of schools for all ages are found nearby as are local shops.

Proceed up Hill lane away from city centre. At the crossroads proceed straight on and turn next left into Darwin road. Take the next turning right into Thornbury Avenue where the property will be found on the right hand side (post code for Sat Nav purposes is SO15 5NR).
