Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This substantial arts and crafts style home is offered for sale chain free. In the family of its present owners since 1961, the property features large rooms and extensive accommodation over two floors.

Its position, set back from the road and Colwell Common, provides privacy whilst at the same time being within walking distance of shops in Totland and Freshwater. The detached double garage and private driveway allow ample off road parking; enough for the largest of families.

The gardens surrounding the home offer a variety of features, with a wild garden to the side and a pretty walled garden and orchard at the rear. To the rear of the kitchen / utility room is an enclosed courtyard giving access to two brick outbuildings.

On the ground floor the property offers two large reception rooms, a conservatory and a good sized kitchen / breakfast room with an Aga and walk-in larder. The first floor has five bedrooms, four of which are good sized doubles. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom, with a bath and shower, and an additional separate shower room.

The property offers a large, mostly boarded loft with a fixed stairway access, ideal for storage or potential to convert to a further bedroom (subject to relevant permissions).

For buyers seeking a character home in which to make their mark, this impressive & commanding family home offers an array of options. It is situated in a picturesque setting within a short distance of a well appointed village and the beach, and is in easy reach of the mainland car ferry link from Yarmouth to Lymington.

What the Owner says:

This is a real family home with large rooms and a safe, interesting garden, ideal for young explorers! The unusual footprint means that there is lots of light flooding in and varied views of the garden from every room.

The house has been in the family for nearly 60 years, during which time it has seen generations of children growing up, and countless family visitors passing through. It has a warm and welcoming feel.

With Colwell Common to the front, and the beach at Colwell only a five minute walk away, this really is a dream house to bring up a family – we certainly found it so!
