Bembridge is one of the Island's most sought after locations, having retained much of its original charm and character and offering a wide range of amenities. Its excellent harbour with marina, mooring facilities and two sailing clubs make it popular with yachtsmen. The village has a superb range of local shops including a butcher, florist, bakery, two delicatessens, fishmonger, farm produce shops, cafes and restaurants. Further shops are available at Ryde, approximately seven miles distant.
There are regular services to/from Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington.
The Old Orchard provides the market place with a rare opportunity to acquire what is a fine family home set in a quite superb position with stunning views across its grounds and countryside beyond. This attractive family home has coloured elevations beneath an attractive tiled roof. The accommodation is particularly conducive to family living and comprises a large reception hall which gives access to three of the principal reception areas including a well proportioned sitting room with central fireplace and attractive bay window giving views over the paddock and Bembridge Marshes beyond. There is a study and a dining room which, again, has the benefit of views over the grounds. With a kitchen/breakfast room and large garden/play room the downstairs accommodation is spacious and can provide an ideal space for both living and entertaining. On the first floor there are five bedrooms which include a principal suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom, there is a guest suite with, again, en suite facilities and some fabulous views. Whilst the property has a particularly welcoming feel there is potential for a degree of modernisation and enhancement which, done correctly, would provide quite a sensational home.
The position and grounds are quite a feature of this property and there is an attractive area of garden to the front with some fruit trees and large lawned sections. Around to the side and rear is the traditional area of garden with a large terrace immediately adjoining the house, ideal for outdoor entertaining and admiring the spectacular views. The topography of the garden falls away slightly to the rear and the post & rail paddock beyond is ideal for grazing. The boundaries are clearly defined by some attractive hedgerows but the key feature is the quite stunning view from the rear terrace across the grounds and down to the Bembridge Marshes. To fully appreciate the position of this fabulous home and inspection is strongly recommended.
