Giverny Simm, Senior Interior Designer at Honky Interiors, comments on the new show home: “Drawing inspiration from the historical beauty of Winchester and surrounding areas, we wanted to create a show home that is both luxurious and timeless, complimenting the cosmopolitan lifestyle within Knights Quarter’s historic environment. We have achieved this through the combination of deep blue velvets and gold accents throughout, creating a luxurious and inviting interior appealing to both downsizers, families and first time buyers, as well as elevating the considered finishes of the apartment itself.”

The attractive apartments at Knights Quarter are ideally located for those looking to enjoy life, being just a short walk from the excellent dining, leisure and transport amenities in the city centre, and within close proximity to the beautiful countryside in the South Downs National Park. We encourage all interested parties to make an appointment to visit the marketing suite to secure the home of their dreams.”
Each apartment at Knights Quarter features a contemporary layout designed to complement busy modern lifestyles. Open-plan kitchen/living/dining areas create a hub of the home and include French doors leading out onto a terrace or balcony, flooding the living room with natural light. Master bedrooms exude luxury and are complete with a sumptuous en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes, with some benefitting from a dressing area or walk-in wardrobe. Second bedrooms also benefit from en-suite bathrooms, ideal for visiting guests.
Penthouses have the advantage of spacious balconies and large terrace areas, providing plenty of space for a sun lounger or dining table, with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and nearby city centre. A variety of two- and three-bedroom apartments also benefit from a separate utility room providing the perfect storage solution for laundry and essential cleaning supplies, tucked away from the main living space.
Knights Quarter enjoys an idyllic location just a short walk to the train station, as well as just a 10-minute walk from the excellent shopping, theatre and restaurants set along the cobbled streets of the city centre. Winchester is also home to one of the largest cathedrals in Europe, the historic Winchester Cathedral, which hosts regular exhibitions and events for both residents and visitors to enjoy. For lovers of the outdoors, Winchester’s water meadows and St Catherine’s Hill are located close to Knights Quarter while the South Downs, New Forest, Southampton and the beaches of the South Coast are easily reached.
Benefitting from excellent transport connections, Knights Quarter is a short walk from Winchester train station offering services in to London Waterloo, with a journey time of approximately one hour. There are frequent bus services within the area, as well as national bus services, and the proximity of the M3 motorway, the A34, A31, A3090 and A272 make connecting to the rest of the country by car very convenient.
