This immaculately presented four-bedroom detached family home is situated in an extremely desirable location which is close to the amenities of Sandown town and the local schools, and is just a very short walk to the fabulous beaches of Sandown Bay.
11 Queens Road offers an enviable combination of living space, with generous room sizes and lovely light filled rooms. The outside space perfectly compliments the inside space, with a twin terrace to the rear, which is south facing and ideal for entertaining, a broad lawned area overlooked by a pretty summer house, and a further screened area with a shed and bin store.
Built in the early 1930s, the attractive building features two generous reception rooms, kitchen and WC on the ground floor, with four bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. Outside there is a low maintenance front garden, plus ample parking for three or four cars, a garage, and contained rear garden.
This is a superb opportunity to purchase a family home which has been exceptionally well maintained in a fabulous location.

Approaching from popular Queens Road, an ornate gate leads into the front garden, which features walled mature borders. A palm tree enhances the sunny, coastal feel of the façade. There is a long-paved driveway to one aspect, which leads to a detached garage and provides plenty of parking and gated access to the rear garden. The paved front garden provides parking for an additional car if required. Four wide steps lead to a UPVC door into the storm porch, which gives ample space for shoes and coats, and leads to the original, part glazed front door with glazed panels surrounding, into the hallway.

A fabulous characterful panelled ceiling is finished in fresh white and features a central brass light fitting. A UPVC window to the side aspect compliments the front door and creates a useful shelf with telephone point and radiator under. The L-shaped hallway is finished in neutral colours and features a luxurious Karndean style timber-finish floor throughout. There are doors to the lounge, dining room and kitchen, plus doors to an under stairs cupboard complete with window and light together with a brand-new consumer unit, and to a useful double cupboard, ideal for coats under and storage over. There are stairs to the first floor.

LOUNGE 13'2 x 11'5 (14'4 into bay)
The lounge is a fantastically light room with generous proportions. A central pendant hangs from an ornate ceiling rose, enhanced by wall lights in both alcoves, while coving compliments the traditional picture rail. The neutral colour scheme continues on to the sumptuous carpet. The large UPVC box bay window is fitted with plantation blinds and affords views over the front gardens and select properties beyond. There is a radiator in the bay plus an additional radiator to one wall. The large chimney breast features a fabulous white surround, which perfectly compliments the architectural style of the building, and contains an electric coal effect fire on a white marble hearth. There are TV and telephone points.

DINING ROOM 13' into bay x 10'7
The south facing dining room features a central chandelier controlled by dimmer switch, plus wall lights and a characterful picture rail. The box bay, with UPVC windows afford views of the back garden and flood the room with light. The internal sill is finished with charming 1930s tiles, and the bay also benefits from a radiator. The Karndean style floor continues through from the hallway, and the dining room also features TV and telephone points.

KITCHEN 13'2 x 8'1
Twin pendants on a dimmer switch hang from a smooth white coved ceiling. Twin UPVC windows to one aspect, fitted with plantation blinds, fill the room with light, which is enhanced by the part glazed south facing back door. There is an abundance of storage, with a mix of floor and wall units, with country style doors with a contemporary white finish. A white wood panelled splash back sits over high quality solid wood worktops, which feature an integrated 1.5 bowl white sink and drainer, with matching mixer tap over. A black Rangemaster hood sits in a full-height panelled wall, over a wide Leisure Range which is finished in black and cream. There is an integrated dishwasher, and the boiler (which has been regularly serviced under a British Gas Service Plan) is hidden neatly into a wall unit. There are spaces for an under-counter fridge and freezer. A high quality Karndean style floor compliments the worktops. There is a doorway to a rear lobby, which has a part glazed back door, plus a timber country style door leading to the downstairs WC.

Finished with fresh white décor with a central light, the downstairs WC is a real bonus. Panelled to half-height in white, with a wood trim that perfectly compliments the stripped pine floorboards, the space is bright due to the south facing patterned UPVC window. The WC features a built-in cistern, finished in white panelling with a useful timber shelf over.

The stairs are finished with a fantastic neutral carpet, and benefit from stunning natural timber newel posts and handrail, with ornate iron spindles. A turn in the stairs gives access to the galleried landing, which features an original panelled ceiling, complete with a central light fitting, smoke alarm and a hatch in to the insulated loft. There are doors off to the airing cupboard, which houses a new hot water tank, and doors to bedroom 1, bedroom 2, bedroom 3, the family bathroom, and bedroom 4.

BEDROOM 1 10'4 plus wardrobe x 10'4
A lovely bright, light room, with a central pendant in a smooth white coved ceiling. The large UPVC window faces the front aspect and features a radiator under.

Bedroom 1 also features a TV point.

BEDROOM 2 10' x 8'10

BEDROOM 4 7'10 x 6'2
Panelled white ceiling, complete with twin pendants feature in bijou bedroom 4, which would also make an ideal study, or ensuite. A radiator sits in an ornate cover, while a UPVC window looks over the front garden. Built in full height cupboards provide useful storage, and the room is finished in a neutral colour scheme.

A central light fitting is complimented by recessed lighting in a coved ceiling. The colour scheme reflects the coastal location of this home, which is enhanced by the half height timber panelling finished in white with an ornate rope detailing over. A full sized white bath has a mixer tap over, complete with shower attachment, and a timber bath panel. A pedestal sink matches the bath, and has a mixer tap over, and compliments the low-level WC. A separate shower benefits from a mixer shower, and is finished with a marble style surround. Twin opaque UPVC windows provide natural light and privacy. A radiator sits behind an ornate cover, which features a chrome towel rail. The bathroom is finished with a neutral carpet.

The rear garden benefits from it's south facing position, with sun all day, and with its outside tap and lighting is the perfect place to play or to entertain. Accessed from either side path or the back door, the lower terrace features attractive paving and is bordered by the rendered garage to one side and a mature walled border to the other, offering a fabulous amount of privacy. Two full width steps lead to the upper terrace, where the attractive paving continues, with borders either side. Above the terrace and separated by a low wall, a broad lawned area is bisected by a path which leads to a screened off shed and storage area, and to the lovely summer house which sits at the end of the garden and features a covered decked veranda, and has its own electrical supply.

At the end of the drive and to the side of the rear garden, accessed by an ornate gate in a brick arch, the garage offers additional parking and secure storage. The garage has a security light outside, plus a large strip light inside, plus power sockets, and currently provides a home for a washing machine and drier which are plumbed in. This superb space has been lovingly used as a work shop which is easily accessible from the house.

Overall this is a wonderful light and spacious family home which flows beautifully and has a lovely ambience.
