This beautiful country cottage sits on the fringe of the historic village of Carisbrooke, and offers any buyer that idyllic country lifestyle with generous gardens and superb country views.

The properties accommodation has been well maintained and upgraded during its current ownership and embraces its character feel but is also sympathetic to modern life with its light & spacious kitchen / breakfast room overlooking the rear garden and the en-suite to its master bedroom.

On first approach you are greeted by a sizable driveway, which is gated from the country lane. The attractive cottage façade is deceptive to the interior feel, as many of the rooms offer dual aspect windows allowing plenty of light. There are French doors that lead from the well-fitted kitchen / breakfast room out to the landscaped formal area of the garden, ideal for summer evenings. An adjacent utility room and separate cloakroom also offer access to the rear garden and form part of the extension to the cottage.

For more formal dining there is a sizable dining room which offers dual aspect windows, again allowing plenty of light. The lounge has a character feel; with a fitted wood burner ensuring winter evenings are a real cosy affair. The first floor offers three double bedrooms, the master bedroom offering en-suite facilities, and a well fitted family bathroom.

For any garden lovers, this property really does offer the dream. The rear garden directly behind the home has been extensively landscaped to provide an array of bordering beds, a meandering pathway and formal lawns alongside the large timber summerhouse.

Beyond the formal garden, the grounds continue and there is an additional area which offers some mature trees and a large workshop. This country cottage is a real delight to discover from its internal presentation to its extensive gardens, it is sure not to disappoint.

What the Owner says:

Just what we were looking for – a cottage in a peaceful location away from the bustling traffic – we fell in love with it at once.

During our fourteen years here we have come to appreciate more than ever the song of the birds and just observing them right outside the windows. Woodpeckers, swallows, little owls and many more are frequent visitors.

We have loved star gazing without light pollution, friendly horse riders stopping for a chat and growing our own fruit and vegetables. The magnificent views across the Bowcombe valley give us a hint of every season and country walks start from our front door – perfect for dog walking.

Visitors always comment on the tranquillity of the area when they go and we will be very sad to leave our little haven, but we hope someone will love it as much as we have.
