Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fantastic opportunity awaits any buyers seeking a character home with extensive land situated within a semi-rural hamlet on the outskirts of Godshill. This substantial detached home has been developed within the walls of an old mill house that served the original neighbouring farmhouse.

The property is an ideal equestrian residence with 8 established stables within a modern block, a sand school and 15.1 acres of paddocks which are fenced and railed and provided with a water supply (not currently connected). The property has various outbuildings, one of which is a large barn which is attached to the main house and offers scope for further development if desired and subject to the relevant permissions. The main house is accessed via a privately-owned lane and has extensive parking for vehicles on the driveway to the front of the home and also within the barns at the rear of the home next to the sand school. The properties façade is understated and you could be forgiven at first glance to assume the property is a single storey dwelling. Once inside the large entrance hallway there is access to three floors and extensive accommodation. The first floor or attic space of the home was converted to create a large double bedroom with superb character features such as exposed beams which have been utilised as features for its occupier to step down from the beam to the sleeping area and upstairs to the en-suite shower room afforded to this room. The ground floor accessed from the main front entrance hall has a substantial lounge which offers a dual aspect and although large creates a beautifully cosy space to relax with a large fireplace and access via double doors into the conservatory. The kitchen / dining room is a superb room with ample storage within the fitted kitchen and a fantastic dining area with ample space to entertain the whole family.

In addition to the ground floor there is also a well-equipped utility room, a separate cloakroom and a study or additional bedroom if required. The lower ground floor offers four bedrooms, which are all of a good size. The paddocks are currently divided into two fields and have been occupied by sheep, horse and llamas during their current ownership.

What the Owner says:


We moved to the Island 8 years ago and particularly wished to purchase a smallholding, so we chose this property in Godshill for our family home.

If you enjoy an outdoor lifestyle then our property and its situation may be suitable for you.

There is an abundance of bridleways and tracks just on your doorstep that radiate from Godshill Park Farm, with no road traffic for the beginner or nervous horse.
Or, if you wish to go a little further there are four local beaches that you can choose from, Yaverland, Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor. These are mainly seasonal for riding apart from Yaverland which is ideal and beautiful.

We are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty here in Godshill and the views from the main paddock on the property will not disappoint you.
