Full description

This is such a handsome house, with its crisp red brick detailing and black slate roof and it is positioned in the centre of the pretty village of Whitwell, with good access to the local school and amenities of Niton and the gorgeous beaches and seafront of Ventnor. Built in 1910, the home has only has three owners, having been built by an Island builder for his daughter who lived there for most of her life, this rich history affords it the joy of retaining some gorgeous period features. The home has been sympathetically extended, creating the fabulous open plan living space with a woodburner, which spans from front to rear along one side. Bi-fold doors open to reveal and link to the lovely garden, and the room links via a wide opening to the spacious and tastefully designed kitchen. From here, there is a door opening to a second, cosy sitting area with a second woodburning stove. There are three good sized double bedrooms on the first floor, including the en-suite master bedroom; a fourth smaller double room and the family bathroom. Outside, the home has a wide gravelled parking area providing space for a number of cars, as well as a double garage. The gorgeous landscaped gardens surround the home and offer some lovely spots to sit and enjoy the sun all day. A pretty stream runs to the rear of the home, with woodland beyond, giving privacy to the garden.
