Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This fantastic 3-bedroom brick-built home is tucked away in a fabulously tranquil spot in popular Wootton Bridge. Close enough to the local village amenities, including a mini-supermarket, chemist, doctors, dentists, vet and take-away restaurants, with an inn and restaurant to the south and community centre to the north. Also giving access to marvellous footpaths for walking in the rural landscape and with Wootton Creek, large mill pond and the woodland of Firestone Copse just a stone's throw away this property offers the best of both worlds.
The property is set back from the road, accessible by a pretty gravel track, which affords this home the quiet location that is so desirable. It's certainly quieter now than it was in 1969, when the property was just four years old, as the site of the original Isle of Wight Festival was on the doorstep at Woodside Bay! The night air was then filled with the sounds of Bob Dylan and The Who, but these days at night, away from the road and street lights, there are spectacular views of the night sky that can be enjoyed in virtual silence.

There are great transport links to the mainland from Wootton, with a vehicle ferry terminal in nearby Fishbourne, and fantastic road access to the larger towns of Newport to the west and Ryde to the east. Outside there is plenty of parking, with spaces on the approach driveway, as well as space on the driveway, which is accessible through substantial wooden gates.
Substantially and tastefully upgraded by the current owner, the property comprises of an internal porch, leading into a light and bright entrance hall, three spacious bedrooms, a large open planned kitchen/diner/lounge, generous family bathroom, cloakroom, and with fantastic mature gardens to the front and rear. A huge bonus is the large workshop in the garden - suitable for any number of hobbies and projects, it is filled with natural light, and it is lined, insulated and has power.

ENTRANCE
Through the substantial wooden gates, the solid driveway leads you to the front door. A UPVC front door opens into an internal porch, complete with modern brushed steel down-lighter, a perfect place for muddy boots after countryside adventures.

HALLWAY 8'8 x 8'5 Extending to 10'8
The bright inner hall is flooded with light from the south facing front door and over-stairs windows. With smooth white ceiling and coving, the hallway features a contemporary chrome 5-bulb light fitting and is kept nice and cozy in cooler months by a small radiator. There are extremely useful built in cupboards in the hallway, one full height giving an ideal space for coats and shoes, and one at half-height, which gives a really handy surface, currently used for the telephone. A further cupboard under the stairs, which also houses the fuse box and electricity meter, gives even more storage. There are doors off to the family bathroom, lounge, bedroom and stairs to the first floor. Finished in a neutral colour scheme, and featuring the original stripped pine floorboards in a natural finish, this is an extremely welcoming feature of this home.

KITCHEN/LOUNGE/DINER 29'10 into recess x 11'9
The heart of this home, this large open planned space with views over the garden is stunning. With a UPVC door to the driveway, the kitchen area has been updated in a tasteful way and to an extremely high quality. LED spots light a modern, fully fitted kitchen that is finished in contemporary aubergine and white colour scheme. A mixture of slab fronted units and open shelving provide the kitchen with an abundance of storage, as well as housing high spec appliances. There is an integrated NEFF oven and separate grill, built in Bosch five-ring gas range, with matching extractor hood complete with down-lighters, a matching Kenwood dishwasher and plenty of power sockets. In the modern, light coloured roll edged worktop sits a fantastic 1.5 bowl sink and drainer, complete with complimentary classic styled swan necked mixer tap. A large window, overlooking the garden, cream metro tiles and light birch face ply floor complete the bright, spacious and modern look of this fantastic kitchen.
Moving from the kitchen into the lounge/diner area, the abundance of light continues, with a large UPVC window overlooking the garden. A textured white ceiling with coving is complemented by a modern eight arm chandelier. Neutral, tastefully presented walls house a built-in book case to one corner, and compliment the original, stripped pine floorboards. The focal point of this space is the magnificent hand-crafted oak fireplace, which houses a compact traditional style wood burner on a natural stone hearth. The fireplace was constructed in the on-site workshop and made from local, Isle of Wight, oak. Either side of the chimney breast are additional windows, adding to the natural light, which have low level built in bookcases below. There is a panelled glass door to the hallway.

FAMILY BATHROOM 9'3 x 6'4
The epitome of calm, the ground floor family bathroom is tastefully presented. Frosted glass windows provide plenty of natural light, and after dark a modern chrome triple spot lamp illuminates the space and there is an air extractor in the ceiling. Contemporary white and green tiles surround a full size wooden panelled bath, complete with modern chrome taps and towel rail over, a generously proportioned walk-in shower enclosure, featuring a Mira Element mixer shower, and a modern pedestal basin, complete with chrome mixer tap. There is a matching white low-level WC, with dual flush, and the floor is covered with complimentary natural coloured ceramic tiles. This bathroom also features a beautiful chrome and white combination towel rail and radiator. Full width built in cupboards complete this well-proportioned room, housing a new Vaillant Eco TEC plus combination boiler, a control panel and water cylinder, and there is plumbing for a washing machine. With a huge amount of useful storage space, these cupboards are a fantastic feature of this room.

BEDROOM ONE 11'11 x 11'9
This ground floor bedroom is a beautiful sunny room, benefitting from a large, south facing UPVC window, with attractive timber pelmet, overlooking the mature front garden. The smooth white ceiling features a central light fitting, and the walls are currently presented in a calming, neutral shade. Featuring built in wardrobes either side of a natural timber panelled headboard, there are additional wall lights and integrated matching timber bedside tables. A large radiator under the window and neutral carpet finish this fantastic bedroom.

STAIRS & LANDING
A south facing window at ground floor level creates a fabulously light ambience on the staircase, and the neutral carpet and open bannister further contribute to the feeling of space. The first-floor landing benefits from a further south facing window, and has a clever, built in bookcase at one end, with space for a chair - an ideal reading spot! LED downlights and a modern wall light, as well as a hatch into the small loft complete this area. There are doors off the landing to bedroom two and three, and also to the upstairs cloakroom.

BEDROOM TWO 11'9 x 11'9
The smooth white up-and-over ceiling in this generously proportioned bedroom houses a central light fitting and smoke alarm. There is a built-in wardrobe which provides useful storage, and also a hatch to access further under-eaves storage, which comes complete with its own light. A large radiator sits beneath a large UPVC window looking west over the driveway and to select housing beyond. Plenty of sockets and a TV point complete this bedroom.

BEDROOM THREE 11'11 x 11'9
Bedroom three is a mirror image of bedroom two, featuring the same built in wardrobe and large radiator sits beneath another large UPVC window, but this time looking east.

CLOAKROOM
Nestling under the eaves, the upstairs cloakroom is a demonstration of clever planning! It's a small but perfectly formed room featuring an exposed roof beam, low level white WC with dual flush, built in white sink unit into a timber cabinet, a small cupboard and heated chrome towel rail. This room has plenty of light which comes through the small Velux window, plus there is a handy wall light above the sink. This room has attractive white textured tiles, and is finished with a beautiful birch faced ply floor.

OUTSIDE
Approaching the property, there is space for two cars parking on School Lane. Once through the substantial wooden gates, there is parking for at least two cars on the concrete driveway. From the driveway, there is an attractive slabbed area approaching the front door, which is surrounded by lawn and mature borders which are contained by attractive timber sleepers, and also a mature tree. There are numerous outside lights to the front and side of the property.
The driveway leads towards the back garden, past the back door. A low-level gate leads into the mature back garden, that is a mixture of sun soaked lawn, mature borders and trees and on to a natural style pond area that is teeming with wildlife. There are fruit trees and further lawn to the rear of the garden, which has high quality feather edged fencing at both sides, and a mature fence to the back. There is a large Silver Birch tree in the far corner of the garden. Overall an interesting garden with plenty of room to grow your own vegetables and herbs.

WORKSHOP 18'11 x 16'
This large, substantial workshop is a real feature of the property. Accessed from a sloping concrete path from the driveway, the workshop is brick built, insulated and plaster boarded throughout, and features attractive part glazed double doors, 4 x double strip lights, large windows overlooking the garden, plenty of power sockets, a chipboard floor and built in shelving.
A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all that is on offer.
