Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally dating back to the mid-17th century, this wonderful grade II listed character home is substantially larger than you would visualise from its façade. On entering the home the property immediately boasts its character features with attractive wooden panelling adorning its hallway. The inner hallway of the home offers a fantastic light space assisted by a roof light on the first floor and still offers an impressive flagstone floor.

The ground floor gives the option of three impressive reception spaces, which overlook the enveloping gardens and two of which give direct access to the verandah with attractive full length strawberry gothic windows. The property became an 'attached' home some 100 years after its original build and is only attached to its neighbour at one section of the rear of the property.

The kitchen is a classic country kitchen with a beautiful dual fuel Esse range, with an abundance of storage and a view over the well-kept side garden, where again strawberry gothic window doors lead onto the patio. In addition there is a sizable utility room with a ground floor cloakroom.

The first floor, offers four double bedrooms, with ample space for a family with a large modern bathroom and a range of original fireplaces ranging across the eras, with stunning examples of both Georgian and Victorian.

The garden has been planted and manicured by its current owners, with a formal lawn and patio area to the side of the home and a wealth of mature shrubs and trees. The large workshop offers enormous scope for any buyer at over 16ft in length and access doors to each side. The summerhouse is perfectly placed overlooking the pond and the copse at the end of the garden, with an assortment of beds and ample space for growing vegetables.

This beautiful home is a pleasure to discover, and with easy access to the Islands principal shopping town and central for all ferry crossings to the mainland it is sure not to disappoint.

What the Owner says:

This property has been our family home for forty years. It was our love of the history of the place, together with the large gardens and surrounding countryside for our, then young, children that made us buy it.

The house and garden are never more alive now than when our grandchildren (and friends) come to stay.

The history is well documented in quill pen-scribed deeds that come with the house and we have endeavoured to retain its character and period features.

The oak panelling in part of the entrance hallway is reliably reputed to have come from Nelson's ship 'The Thunderer' that fought in the battle of Trafalgar.
