Tenure: Freehold

Hidden away behind original stone walling and grand electric entrance gates, with the popular town center of Ryde on the doorstep and with the fantastic sandy shoreline of the north-east coastline and transport links to the mainland just a short walk away, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a stunning period stone cottage with a truly cosmopolitan feel.
From the spectacular Mediterranean style stone terracing to the fabulous orangery, to the hidden inner courtyard and wine room, to the chalet office, Stone Cottage is full of impressive surprises at every turn. Defined by the character and charm of a period home, Stone cottage exudes elegance with high quality finishes and fixtures throughout, which sympathetically enhance the original fabric of the building.
This substantial residence is perfectly positioned for enjoying the amenities of Ryde and enjoys expansive outside space. The accommodation has generously proportioned rooms laid out over two characterful floors, with lounge, kitchen/breakfast room, orangery, with a hidden courtyard with cloakroom and wine cellar on the ground floor, with the master bedroom, family bathroom and en-suite bedroom on the first floor.
A perfect blend of space, elegant style, charm and convenience, this is a town house that must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

From popular Trinity Street, large solid black electric gates give way to the front terrace, which hints at the international influences of this beautiful home. A storm porch sits proudly on the stone façade and welcomes visitors in via the high quality glazed hardwood door.

ENTRANCE HALL 10'8 x 7'8
Full of character, the entrance hall features the magnificent stone floor that runs through most of the ground floor. With fresh neutral décor, the hallway feels light and bright, with a staircase to the first floor, open archways to the kitchen and breakfast room, and a door to the lounge. There is also a useful under stairs cupboard which is home to the consumer unit and is equipped with its own light.

LOUNGE 16'5 into alcove x 14'9
Generously proportioned and packed with personality, from the original solid beamed ceiling to the tactile stripped pine floorboards, the lounge is a fabulous blend of style and coziness. A broad chimney breast to one end houses an impressive bath stone fireplace over a stone hearth. A large window overlooks the front terrace, and features a radiator under, while a glazed door gives access to the enclosed courtyard.

KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM 14'9 x 10'4 extending to 13'7
Cleverly integrated around the architecture of the building, the open plan kitchen and breakfast room is an extremely social space, featuring beamed ceiling detail, recessed lighting, and carrying the stone floor through from the hallway. A huge amount of storage is afforded by a mix of floor and wall units, all soft-close with under unit lighting and finished in a fabulously contemporary high gloss deep red, with complimenting high quality black granite worktops over. A sleek glass NEFF induction hob features a wide Smeg extractor hood over, with a black metro tiled splash back and neatly fitted utensil rail. Broad pan drawers fit neatly under the hob, and there are integrated Hotpoint dishwasher, Hotpoint washing machine and Miele drier all nicely hidden away. Under the large window is a 1.5 bowl sink and drainer, with a spectacular dual head mixer tap, with flexible head. A full height base unit houses a NEFF double oven, and also a useful larder drawer. There is also a large Whirlpool fridge/freezer. A smart peninsula unit creates additional preparation space, and creates a perfect soft division between the kitchen area and the breakfast room area. The breakfast room area features plenty of space for a table and chairs, and benefits from French doors to the orangery.

ORANGERY 22'3 x 11'11
An extremely generous space, the orangery benefits from both the substantial stone walls and an abundance of light from the opaque UPVC roof. Half height timber panelling softens the room, while ornate brackets create a perfect union between the old stone walls and the modern roof structure. A stone shelf runs the length of the room, and a reversible air conditioning unit is fitted that supplies hot and cold air. Currently used as a luxurious dining room, there is plenty of floor space to entertain and to comfortably seat ten diners. One end of the orangery is glazed, with French doors to the enclosed courtyard with windows either side, plus a glazed gable further enhancing the feeling of space.

ENCLOSED COURTYARD
Accessible from the lounge and orangery, the enclosed courtyard is totally secluded. Featuring a solid stone terrace perfect for continental style potted planting, and giving access to…

CLOAKROOM
Decorated in a contemporary scheme and with a smart low-level WC with dual flush and compact hand basin with contemporary mixer tap over and vanity unit under.

WINE ROOM
Just steps from the orangery is the wine room, which features plenty of storage space, plus its own power and plumbing. The wine room also houses the Potterton Combi boiler, which has been regularly serviced.

STAIRS TO FIRST FLOOR LANDING
A characterful handrail leads up the turning staircase, under a large window with a deep sill, to the first-floor landing. Featuring neutral décor and a high-quality carpet, and a feature pendant, the landing has doors off to bedroom one, bedroom two and the family bathroom.

BEDROOM ONE 14'7 plus wardrobes x 14'11
A luxurious master bedroom, featuring built in wardrobes to one side with high quality doors, some with mirrored door panels. A radiator sits under a large window, which affords views over the front courtyard and the Solent. A built in triple wardrobe fits neatly to one corner, and the room is finished with a high quality neutral carpet.

BEDROOM TWO 10' extending to 11'2 x 10'6
The second bedroom also benefits from a large window overlooking the front courtyard and the Solent, this room is again immaculately presented in neutral colours and has a high-quality carpet. A door leads to the en-suite.

EN-SUITE
With recessed lighting, a roof window and neutral colours, the en-suite is a lovely light room. An ornate pedestal basin with high quality chrome taps is finished in white, with a matching low-level WC with dual flush. A generously proportioned fully tiled shower enclosure is complete with a Triton mixer shower. An electric heater is fitted, and there is a heated ladder towel rail, on a grey tiled floor. Additionally, there is a full height airing cupboard with automatic lighting.

FAMILY BATHROOM
A large patterned glass window to the front aspect provides plenty of natural light in the family bathroom. A luxurious full-sized whirlpool bath occupies one end, and features a high-quality mixer tap with shower attachment and ornate tiling around. The pedestal basin is of contemporary style with an oval shape, and there is a matching low-level WC. There is a radiator under the window, plus a heated towel rail, on a smart grey tiled floor. Above the door there are useful storage cupboards.

OUTSIDE
To the front, the impressive stone wall features full height electric gates, which utilize an entry phone system and can be operated from inside the house or chalet office. The gates give way to an impressive Mediterranean style stone terrace, with stunning mature borders surrounding and which provides plenty of parking space, plus there is plenty of room for seating. The lower terrace is surrounded by stone walls on all sides.
Up steps between one stone wall the upper terrace is accessible. Continuing the fabulous stonework, with mature tall hedging providing privacy, the upper terrace also hosts the chalet office. Full of character and charm, the chalet office has a covered veranda, which catches the morning sun, with windows to the front aspect and a lockable glazed front door. Inside the chalet is extremely well appointed, with a neutral colour scheme, painted floorboards, electricity, internet and telephone points. There is also an intercom system and an entry phone connected to the front gates.

Beyond the chalet is access to the large upper lawn area, between further stone walling and up three steps. The expansive lawned area features extensive planting and borders, including vegetable patches and a natural central bed left to meadow which encourages an abundance of wildlife. To one corner is a pretty octagonal summer house, with a substantial shed occupying the opposite corner. At the far end, a restored 1950s caravan provides additional accommodation, and with the addition of power and outside taps in the garden the potential is enormous. The upper lawn provides many positions to sit and enjoy the garden. This is truly a magnificent garden, one of interest with maturity, screening offering private secluded areas and surprisingly low maintenance, a beautiful haven to relax in.

A planning application for a detached 2-storey 2-bedroom house was submitted for the land where the chalet office is currently located, in February 2005 (and approved in spring 2005). That same planning permission for the same dwelling was extended in June 2008 (extension applied for in April 2008).
