Property Description

Key features


Full description

Built in 1928, this beautiful 'Sussex Farmhouse' offers plenty of spacious accommodation, which includes; five bedrooms, four receptions and a stunning kitchen. The house has been meticulously maintained, with a substantial and very sympathetic extension added in 2007 by the present owners. The property is fully double glazed, benefits from gas central heating and is set in a good sized plot with lawned gardens to both the front and rear. There is not only a large garage, but parking space for a number of other vehicles, whilst to the rear of the home is a private, fully heated swimming pool. The property backs onto a small copse, which is home to a number of red squirrels, who are daily visitors to the garden. The handful of 'Sussex Farmhouses' on Kite Hill, are among the most sought after properties in this part of the Island, which is probably due to not only the stunning appearance, but also the close proximity to both the ferries and Ryde School.
