Full description

Once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a stunning historic Grade II listed house right in the middle of this fabulous village yet so tucked away you'd never know it was there! It's a completely blank canvas for the lucky new owner to transform. Two bedrooms, two receptions, large gardens & parking. Chain free too!

This handsome detached Grade II listed cottage is hidden from view right in the heart of the ever-popular village of Brighstone and has a history spanning several hundred years, much of it with the same family. The cottage's chalk, brick and stone construction has been sympathetically and knowledgeably improved over the last two years by well renowned Wight Heritage Preservation but offers complete scope to modernise. A porch is set on the front of the home and leads to two pleasant reception rooms, the dining room having a large inglenook fireplace and the lounge a brick fireplace with beamed ceilings in each. The kitchen to the side offers great potential and has an unusual connection to the external larder. Upstairs are two inter-connecting double bedrooms which lead through to a generous sized shower room. A basic build extension lies to one side providing the footprint to extend the cottage subject to the necessary works and permissions. There is also a useful outside W.C. The cottage is set within beautifully large lawned and planted gardens with an area of parking and plenty of space to make more. With its unique positioning, tucked up a driveway with just one other property, and the tremendous scope it offers, the cottage represents a rare opportunity!
