Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This beautiful thatched cottage offers extensive accommodation and is situated on a plot of 0.32 acres.

Full of character, the property is accessed via a porch situated at the front, which leads you into a large lounge with exposed wooden beams, a stunning flag stone floor and a feature fireplace.

From here there is access to the sun room situated at the side of home, which is an ideal space to use as a formal dining room, or children’s play room depending on your needs.

The kitchen & dining area are full of character, and flow seamlessly into one another with an attractive terracotta tiled floor, a stable door leading to the garden and an extensive array of cupboards. In addition to the fully fitted kitchen there is a useful utility room, separate shower and cloakroom also cited on the ground floor.

The first floor offers four double bedrooms to house all the family comfortably, alongside a good sized family bathroom. All the rooms on the first floor have superb country views of the surrounding area and the beautiful rear garden.

The outside of the home has parking for numerous vehicles, on the gravelled driveway but also a large detached garage currently used for storage.

The garden wraps around the entire home, and is enclosed by bordering mature hedges. To both the side and rear of the property is a paved seating area which is perfect for alfresco dining.

The majority of the garden is situated at the rear of the home giving a fantastic area for children to play and a gardeners dream. There is an abundance of beautiful flower beds & rockeries and a wealth of mature shrubs and trees throughout. Due to the gardens size the numerous sheds & greenhouse are well hidden from sight and the large work shop which could serve as a perfect home office, is located behind a mature hedge screening it from view from the property.

This home really is a delight to discover and gives good access to both the shopping towns of Newport and Shanklin, as well as Sandown and Ventnor with their stunning coastlines and beaches.

What the Owner says:

For many years we had driven past this property and always commented on what a beautiful house it was, and wouldn’t it be nice to live there. We could not believe our good fortune when twenty seven years ago it came onto the market and we were in a position to purchase it!
What was even more delightful was the fact that it had everything that we were looking for in our next home; a large garden, two dining areas, two bathrooms, a sun room and four bedrooms.

For us it was the perfect family home and we have lived life to the full here with parties, weddings (including a marquee in the garden), christenings and other family occasions. In fact the local taxi drivers call it the party house! It is perfect for entertaining, especially at Christmas with ample room for all our family and friends.

As time has gone on our children have followed their careers and settled on the mainland, and now we have young grandchildren we feel the time is right to move closer to them there.

We feel privileged to have lived in this lovely house and we are sure its new owners will be just as happy as us to live here.
