Tenure: Freehold

Conybeare, a detached Edwardian house with sunny, south-facing rear gardens, extends a warm welcome: its comfortable accommodation, with four bedrooms, is generously proportioned yet has a cosy feel. Whilst having been modernised to current standards, Conybeare’s original Arts & Crafts period features have been retained and, where necessary, sensitively restored: fireplaces, door and window furniture, a service bell system, the terracotta-tiled roof with decorative finials in the shape of mythical creatures. With a little research, the owners discovered that the property’s unusual name is drawn from medieval origins meaning 'rabbits in a wood on a hill'.
The front of the house has leaded windows set in stone mullions. A sense of space greets you on stepping from the porch with its encaustic tile floor into the entrance hall. There is a reception room on either side, as you continue past the imposing staircase to the kitchen. Whilst retaining bags of period features such as the walk-in larder and utility, the kitchen has been extended to become a spacious farmhouse kitchen diner, with a gas-fuelled, vintage Aga, together with under-floor heating below a stone floor.
The two reception rooms are flexible to use by changing the furniture around: the larger, triple aspect room is currently used as a summery living room, but with its pale Scandinavian colours also looks good in the winter; the room decorated in deep colours is an intimate dining room and cosy winter snug. A Christmas tree looks great in either room!
Whilst the north and west-facing windows of these rooms look out over the village's terracotta roofs towards the coast, the triple-aspect living room and the kitchen both open on to a terraced area. This is ideal for long, lazy breakfasts, lunches or suppers on warm evenings, as it faces south and enjoys sun for much of the day.
The gardens, in a setting of mature trees and shrubs enhanced by several changes of level, are laid out with flower borders, vegetable plots and raised beds for soft fruit. The inviting lawn offers space for children and pets to play, to entertain guests for a barbecue, afternoon tea, or for simply relaxing. Further from the house, beyond a wildlife pond, a flight of stone steps leads to a secluded spinney frequented by wildlife. There you can find a choice of places to sit and enjoy long-distance views of Hurst Castle and its lighthouse.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms to choose from, with a family shower room and an en suite bathroom to the master bedroom; all enjoy views of the garden or the coast. The fourth bedroom is being used as a studio, with sea views and a balcony which catches the evening sun. This is a special place to sit and enjoy the sunsets over the sea, for which Totland Bay is appropriately renowned.
If even more space is required, scope remains to extend the accommodation into the attic with potential for additional rooms, a studio space or even an annexe for a teenager; an earlier occupant built and housed his model steam engines there.
The detached timber garage has accommodation for two cars, as well as storage and a workshop area; externally, there is also a hard-standing for two further vehicles.
The property has a security system with smartphone links.
Conybeare is a few minutes’ stroll from the safe, sandy beaches of both Totland Bay and Colwell. Up the lane in the opposite direction, there is immediate access to the network of footpaths, with miles of beautiful coastal and downland countryside to explore. Also within walking distance in Freshwater are shops, schools, a sports centre, library and health centre, as well as the surfers’ beach at Freshwater Bay. Apart from water sports, there is a rich social life with events and activities to suit all interests within easy reach.
A short drive away is Yarmouth, with ferries to the mainland and a rail link to London, as well as a good selection of eateries and independent shops. Sailing enthusiasts will appreciate the chandlery, as well as the two sailing clubs, one of which runs a programme attracting families. A bus service runs between Alum Bay to Totland and on to the bus interchange in the county town of Newport.
