Formerly part of Ryde’s historical Southlands Manor, this charming cottage dates back to the late 1800s and benefits from a complete refurbishment project completed over the past 18 months. 65a Park Road has been stylishly upgraded with contemporary finishes that can be admired throughout; from its stunning kitchen and well-appointed shower rooms, new double glazing and modern electric heating, and high-quality flooring which coordinates with a fresh neutral decor throughout. Additionally, the property benefits from being totally rewired, new plumbing has been installed, and the walls and ceilings have been completely replastered. Despite offering a modern-day family home, the property still retains some of its historical character with its exposed timber beams on the second floor, original stonework and a traditional timber entrance door. Outside there is a delightful wrap-around terrace garden that has been completely landscaped to offer a fully enclosed, secluded space.
Just a short walk from the property is Ryde seafront which boasts long stretches of sandy beaches with numerous seaside activities such as bowling, laser quest and an open-air swimming pool. With good local primary and secondary schools nearby, there are also plenty of high street amenities within short walking distance including boutique shops and convenience stores, a superb choice of eateries and even a local cinema. Another benefit of being so close to the seafront is having easy access to high-speed foot passenger travel to the mainland with Wightlink’s catamaran service and the Hovercraft which only takes 10 minutes to cross the Solent. Additionally, the Fishbourne to Portsmouth car ferry service is located just 3.4 miles away from the property. Regular public transport connections across the island are also within easy reach with the Southern Vectis bus network and Island Line train service providing regular services for Ryde.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors with the ground floor comprising a lounge and a stylish kitchen which leads to the garden. A turning staircase from the lounge continues to the first floor which provides a double bedroom and a shower room. Continuing to the second-floor level, there is a spacious double bedroom complete with an en-suite shower room. This property also benefits from a security alarm and integrated hardwired smoke detectors.
