I just love the light that pours through this gorgeous house – and that fact that you can appreciate the views all the way through the rooms. It balances so well with living and bedroom accommodation and it has heaps of parking as well as a really pretty rear garden.

Full description

Set on the outskirts of Cowes and Porchfield, this beautifully presented detached home has a warm and welcoming presence. It is wonderfully light throughout the whole home and its position, with fields to the front and rear, is perfect for those seeking something rural, yet conveniently placed for access to both the west and north of the Island. The spacious entrance hallway introduces you the the home and leads you through into the good sized sitting room to the front, where there is a handsome woodburning stove and a large opening to the dining area giving you a wonderful open plan feel. Patio doors lead from the dining area out to the garden, and allow you to get a super view all the way through the room. A door links the living area to the gorgeous, newly fitted kitchen which has an outlook to the garden at the rear. In addition, there is a double bedroom; handy cloakroom and a cleverly created utility room at the rear of the garage.
