This wonderful character home has been recently renovated by its current owner and benefits from the most beautiful views of the Needles and Alum Bay.

Space and character are at the forefront here - with stunning views over Tennyson down and the Needles.

One of five cottages that were built as part of the Headon Hall Estate, this is a unique chance to own part of the Islands Heritage.

Perfect for second home owners, the ferry link to Lymington is in the nearby town of Yarmouth - only a short drive away.

Finish work on a Friday and head to your haven for a weekend of tranquillity, relaxation and walks in the country.

A large car park for the cottages to use provides plenty of parking for owners and guests alike.

Stroll through your private front garden and step inside to see a fabulous sized lounge/dining area with plenty of features such as the corbels & a ceiling rose. A fireplace with a wide mantle was once the only heating, happily there is now oil fired central heating to keep out the chill.

The kitchen area is perfectly in keeping with the character makes use of modern convenience, providing plenty of storage and a good space for creating family meals.

The new owners of this fabulous home will even have use of the estate grounds all year round.

What the Owner says:

I first spotted the cottage and fell in love with the charm, character and location, enjoying bringing family here and wandering around the estate and down to the beach.
As time went on I acquired 3 others along the row and they have been successfully let out providing a good income. Adding a few modern touches such as the facility to have broadband has just been the finishing touch.
With Yarmouth only a few minutes by car it’s easy to get a ferry link to the mainland or just pop out for a good meal in a local pub.
