I saw this house on a walk up to St Giles Hill and thought it looked lovely, so I came back to see if I could find any information on it. The house is called St John's Croft and is actually a Bed and Breakfast establishment. It's a Grade II listed Queen Anne town house built around 1770.
There is some controversy around this house when an adjacent meadow belonging to the property was sold off for development of 14 houses. Local residents waged a campaign against this over-development and the saga rolled on from 2007 until November 2010. The local resident's group eventually realised that it was inevitable houses would be built there, but managed to get the number reduced to just six. The building of the new houses hasn't started yet so if you hurry you might be able to catch a glimpse of the last meadow in Winchester before it is lost forever.
