Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An historic residential farm comprising a fine 4 bedroom detached period farmhouse, 2 holiday cottages, stables, outbuildings and period Tythe Barn all set in approximately 5 acres of paddocks and gardens. The property is located close to the outskirts of Ryde in the East of the Isle of Wight with excellent car and passenger connections. More land and an additional dwelling are available separately as Lot 2.

As well as the period farmhouse the property offers extensive equestrian and holiday letting facilities in a sought-after location. There is ample opportunity to expand the current income-generating facilities to create additional revenue if so required.

The current owners have painstakingly restored the property over the years and have converted 2 of the farm buildings The Old Dairy and The Grange to provide spacious holiday letting accommodation, providing a healthy income. The large period Tythe Barn which once operated as a farm shop and which, together with several other buildings and outbuildings on the site, offer potential for conversion (subject to obtaining the necessary planning and statutory consents) to provide additional holiday letting accommodation.

Lot 1 comprises the Farmhouse, Outbuildings, Garden, The Old Dairy, The Grange, The Tythe Barn, and Land in all about 5 acres.

The Farmhouse, set behind a spacious lawned area, has been improved and updated by the current owners to provide light and airy family accommodation including 4 reception rooms, a modern kitchen, study, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The principal ground floor rooms open onto the formal gardens and patio area with fine views over the surrounding countryside and lake. A single storey area, currently used as a workshop and store, offers potential for use as an Annexe.

The Old Dairy and The Grange are two cottages used for holiday letting which have been carefully converted to provide comfortable accommodation for guests to enjoy the beautiful rural setting. There has been a healthy reservoir of repeat visitors. There is ample parking and plenty of outside space in which to relax and even a private lake. In all the property stands in approximately 5 acres (2 ha) of paddocks, orchard and gardens. The land itself, due to its proximity to the settlement of Ryde holds some potential for development (subject to obtaining any necessary statutory consents).

Ryde is the largest town on the Isle of Wight and has an array of fine Georgian and Victorian buildings, pubs, restaurants, a sea front promenade, marina, shops and entertainment. Ryde has 6 miles of beaches and shallow coastal waters which is ideal for swimming. Reaching almost half a mile, Ryde Pier is one of the oldest piers in the country. This is considered the gateway to Ryde as the Wightlink Catamaran operates from Portsmouth to the end of the pier and there is also a direct train from the pier through to Shanklin. To the East of Ryde there are the popular sailing villages which include Seaview, St Helens and Bembridge. To the West of Ryde is Newport which is the main shopping district with many popular high street shops.

The Isle of Wight situated off the South Coast of England, is becoming an ever-more popular location for permanent and second homes. Made popular by Queen Victoria, who had her maritime residence at Osborne House, the Island is famous for sailing in the Solent; Cowes Week; its beautiful coastline including sandy beaches and The Needles; spectacular countryside and long sunshine hours. There are now many more facilities than once was the case- Sainsbury's, Tesco, M&S, Waitrose, Aldi and Asda all have a presence as have other national chains. Communication and transport links are excellent: regular car ferries connect with the national motorway network and fast catamarans have connections via Southampton and Portsmouth with direct trains to London Waterloo, which can be reached within 2 hours of leaving the Island shore. Government-funded schools are numerous and independent schools thrive on the Island with some children attending prep and public schools on the mainland. Leisure opportunities abound: walking, riding, paragliding, hang-gliding, team sports, windsurfing, sailing and other water sports, rugby, football (Newport Football Club) cricket, bowling and golf clubs. Good transport links enable day trips to the shopping centres of West Quay, Southampton, and Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
