Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated on an inner cul-de-sac off the main road, this detached family home is set back from the lane on a large corner plot in a tranquil setting. It is surrounded by a hedge and a lawn that wraps around the front and side of the property, providing a high degree of privacy. There is a large area of off-road parking for a number of vehicles and access to the garage and the property.

An attractive pergola-covered path spans the width of the house and leads to the main front door and the hallway. On the ground floor the flexible accommodation currently includes a good-sized light and bright, triple aspect lounge with an attractive fireplace as a focal point and a separate dining room. There is a vibrant kitchen with multi-coloured tiles and white units with red handles housing a gas hob and built in oven and the colourful tiling extends through to the utility room that has doors to both the front and rear garden.

You will also find a fairly self-contained single bedroom with a separate door to the rear garden providing independent external access and a large en suite bathroom. This area could be very useful for anyone with an elderly relative needing annex facilities and could be expanded as there is also direct access to the dining room that could always be converted into a separate sitting room for them.

On the first floor there is a double shower room and four bedrooms including one single that is currently designed as an office with fitted shelving, a double that is used as a second sitting room with built in shelves and two double bedrooms. If further accommodation was required there is a large loft that could be converted into additional bedrooms and a bathroom subject to the necessary permissions.

The rear garden is laid out with relaxation in mind. It is easy to manage with a paved patio and painted decking where you can enjoy al fresco dining, two garden sheds and a small lawn.

What the Owner says:

We have thoroughly enjoyed living here for the past 20 years and it has been a great family home. But as there are just the two of us living here, we feel it is time to downsize. The location is delightful as we are on a quiet lane but there is a bus route on the adjacent main road and we look out over farmland and the surrounding countryside. We are less than four miles from Newport and not far from ferries for the mainland while it is only a minute's walk to one of the very few private schools on the island.

East Cowes includes a charming promenade and is well known for its association with Queen Victoria who spent many years at nearby Osborne House. With its Cowes association there is everything available for sailors while golfing enthusiasts can enjoy a game at the Osborne Golf Club. East Cowes is joined to Cowes by the chain ferry across the River Medina and is famous for hosting the oldest and biggest annual sailing regatta in the world. This Mecca for sailors also includes a plethora of independent shops, chandlers, bars and restaurants as well as museums and galleries.
