Full description

Believed to have been commissioned by the Duke of Norfolk, circa 1825, for workers employed to build a grand crescent on the island, this is, perhaps the quintesential Georgian residence.

Having been painstakingly renovated by the current owner, this beautiful cottage now boasts an interior both sympathetic to its period and modern in its execution.

A new, glazed rear extension provides a less formal family space opening to the newly installed kitchen, whilst a more formal lounge/dining room offers the option to retreat to a cosy, more intimate space.

This is quite simply a period property lovers dream, located to the south west of the island with direct views across the sea this is a home of unrivaled character.
No expense has been spared in the renovation with details such as hardwood shutters, half-paneling to the hall, stairs and landing, a modern engineered, glass-roofed extension, new kitchen, new bathroom suite in addition to a re-wire and new radiators.

Viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate the scope and quality on offer.
