In a prized enclave close to the English Heritage site of Portchester Castle, Wistaria Cottage is a Grade II listed home with all the rich details of a 16th Century home and modern comforts of a sensitive renovation geared to family life. The Castle is recorded as an English Heritage site with the oldest area of Portchester, the waterfront, sailing club, village amenities and public house nearby. The symmetrical red-brick frontage is topped with a pitched clay peg tiled roofline and laced with the deep purple hues of the property’s namesake flower.
