Property description

'Deep Dene' is an extraordinary residence of great historical architectural interest, set within a quiet location of Midanbury Lane in Bitterne Park. This Georgian style conversion is incredibly impressive from from the kerb featuring a selection of original architectural detailing and neo-classical stylings. Despite the conversion, which we believed happened around 1987, Deep Dene House has retained a wealth of original features including the decorative brickwork, bay windows, 'WOW' factor entrance porch with a selection of stained glass windows and a grand entrance hall with original style rossini patterned carpets, panelled walls and a wooden staircase with carved banisters. The apartment itself has been beautifully upgraded to a modern style featuring an elegant 'dual aspect' sitting room with plush grey carpets and dado rails, modern kitchen with metro tiles and white gloss units, double bedroom with a built in wardrobe and a larger than average three piece bathroom which is a real showstopper featuring a sleek vanity hand wash basin, rainfall style shower and cleverly designed recessed area which would be ideal for toiletries and bathroom decoration. Completing this apartment is a 19'5' entrance hall which also benefits from dado rails, utility cupboard and loft access. Added benefits include: no forward chain, double glazing, generous lease of 95 years and no ground rent charges.

Outside The Deep Dene development benefits from a long sweeping driveway with allocated parking and beautifully kept gardens with manicured shrubs and a selection of well-established trees. The development itself backs onto the Deep Dene woodland area and recreation ground which consists of mixed ornamental trees remain mainly from the old grounds. A good spot for short woodland walks it has a grassy open space with a play area.

History The development of the Bitterne Park occurred in two stages, the first, from 1882 to 1890 concentrating on the southern end of the site, on the higher ground and the land adjacent to Bitterne railway station. First to be developed was the wooded grounds of Cobden Bridge Road, Midanbury Lane and Thorold Road where large villas were envisaged including the Deep Dene House. 

Location Situated in a quiet location with kerb appeal in abundance; the location couldn't be better. Bitterne Park is unquestionably one of the most desirable neighbours located on the suburb of Southampton on the east bank of the River Itchen. Midanbury Lane, Bitterne Park is conveinently positioned close to an outstanding selection of local shops, cafes and amenities nearby in the Bitterne Precinct and the Bitterne Park Triangle. Exceptional schools are nearby including Bitterne Park Secondary School and Bitterne Park Primary School which has been rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. In addition to that the property is also surrounded by a number of natural attractions including the Frogs Copse, Cutbush Hidden Pond and the beloved Riverside Park. A wonderful place to take a walk, go for a bike ride or kayak along the River Itchen with cafe's and pubs close by.
