Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This magnificent country home offers a buyer an opportunity to live in a picturesque setting, with outbuildings and 2.73 acres of land, ideal for horses or livestock. You are also situated in a rural location but conveniently located close to both East Cowes and Fishbourne for mainland car ferry connections.

The main house itself is Grade II listed and is currently used as two separate homes but could easily be reinstated back into one large property with six/seven bedrooms and four/five reception rooms.

The property is laid out over three floors and has some breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside from

many of its rooms. The western side of the ground floor is predominantly used as the ancillary accommodation, with a kitchen/living room, family bathroom, sitting room (which is currently used as a bedroom) and conservatory, all offering the option to be self-contained from the main home if need be. There are bathrooms on both the ground and first floor but, due to the size of the rooms on offer, the property has scope to incorporate en-suite facilities.

Its tranquil setting, situated over a mile back from the main road, has been run as a farm by the current owner and goes back through generations of the family. There are several outbuildings available within the sale which may be ripe for conversion depending on a buyer’s needs. These include a large tithe barn and a limestone barn with hay storage. The private driveway, which sweeps off the access lane, leads around to a gravelled area adjacent to the main house with extensive parking for numerous vehicles.

Currently, most of the outside areas have been used for livestock but they have retained a side and rear outside area which is utilised as more formal gardens, with paving and attractive flower borders.

For any buyers seeking a home for a large family to reside in the country, or the potential to accommodate an elderly relative, this may just be the type of home you have been looking for.

What the Owner says:


This property has been in our family for many generations. As a working farm, our central location on the island and beautiful scenic farmland and ancient woodland has been a joy to experience over these many years.
Our farmhouse, with its history, location and size can offer so many benefits to the new owners, that includes an abundance of wildlife that can be seen in the gardens and surrounding fields.
During the year, the steam train can be seen and heard in the background; a fantastic, nostalgic look into the past.
We frequently use our conservatory and sun lounge to enjoy the peaceful and tranquil setting. Our home offers flexible living for our mother as she can still enjoy her independence in her annex and yet be included in the family environment.
The gardens are spacious enough to enjoy family functions either to entertain formally or to hold informal gatherings, as the backdrop creates ideal photo opportunities for the family album.
We will really miss seeing the sunrise and sunset from the house as the experience of watching the woodpeckers, pheasants and red squirrels going about their daily business is a sight to behold. It will be sad when we come to retire, however, in the knowledge that the new owners will have a fabulous opportunity.
