Property Description

Full description

Garstons is a fine period house which underwent comprehensive refurbishment between 2006 and 2010, now providing beautifully finished accommodation set in landscaped gardens. The accommodation provides a range of excellent reception rooms all benefiting from large windows taking in the stunning views of the gardens and surrounding downland, which are also seen from all of the 4 bedroom suites. A sympathetic extension included a good sized kitchen/ breakfast room, a well organised boot room and a utility room ideal for modern country living.

The house is double glazed throughout and well insulated making it a very comfortable and efficient home. Works involved new electrical, plumbing and heating systems with under floor heating to the ground floor heating the majority of which is now tiled limestone. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms all with ensuite facilities in addition to a study and loft work area and throughout the house there are extensive storage cupboards. The current owners have landscaped the gardens incorporating an additional area of land acquired to the west of the house and a wonderful stone barn, largely rebuilt and converted into a good quality 3 bedroom annex, ideal for guests, staff or holiday lettings. The gardens extend to 1 acre and form an attractive setting for the house with a number of different areas including terraces and a glazed pavilion for outdoor entertaining as well as well planted borders, lawns and an orchard.

Garstons is set in the midst of an Area of Outstanding Beauty surrounded by fields and downland to the South making for an exceptional secluded location with no neighbouring properties. Excellent walks and riding can be enjoyed directly from Garston with public footpaths and bridleways extending onto the surrounding downs as well as towards Carisbrooke Castle. Accessed through the picturesque hamlet of Gatcombe, (about half a mile away) the property has easy access to the islandís principal town of Newport (approximately 4 miles) whilst mainland ferry connections are also easily accessed including high speed passenger services from Cowes, (about 8 miles) to Southampton (taking about 20 minutes) with car ferry services from East Cowes to Southampton (about 1 hour) and Fishbourne (about 9 miles) to Portsmouth (about 45 minutes). This central location on the Island also means that Garstons is well placed to access the array of attractions available on the island with its diverse coastline including the beaches of the South Western coast, the numerous harbours and the marinas.
