2 Truckles Cottages Believed to have been built in 1850 this semi-detached cottage provides particularly light accommodation with good room sizes. Arranged over three floors with four double bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room occupying the first and second floors and a nicely proportioned sitting room and kitchen/dining room forming the principal rooms on the ground floor. Thatched in reed, there are a wealth or period features including flagstones, fireplaces and stripped antique pine doors whilst modern comforts include central heating and wooden framed double glazed windows. The cottage is set within an attractive south facing garden with terraces and there is a single garage.

The Cottage is situated in a particularly quiet and attractive setting within Whippingham, which was the centre of a royal estate supporting Osborne House. Believed to have been built for the head gardener at Osborne the cottage is situated within a Conservation Area which includes the nearby St. Mildred's Church where Queen Victoria's close interest in 'her people' is reflected in the many memorials and Prince Albert took an active role in the redesigning of the church building. Accessed by a country lane, there is an independent, co-educational school approximately half a mile away whilst walks towards the River Medina and Folly public house can be enjoyed directly from the property. East Cowes can easily be accessed with its range of shops, including Waitrose, marinas and frequent car ferry services to Southampton.
