As my home village for over twenty years, I can personally vouch for the many qualities of Brighstone. From its well stocked village shop; lovely café in the newsagents; beautiful church and handy doctor’s surgery to the friendly, active village community. We’re also surrounded by stunning countryside and the coast is on the doorstep. If you want the guided tour of all our village has to offer – just ask!

Full description

This beautiful thatched cottage was constructed by the highly regarded Bucketts builders in the 1930's and has been lovingly and extensively improved by the current owners. A flagstoned entrance porch opens to the hallway with a wide turning staircase. The individually shaped lounge has a wide walk-in bay and a brick fire surround and a well proportioned extra reception room is suitable for a range of uses. The wonderful kitchen/dining room has been elegantly extended in recent years to create a stunning family gathering space with high vaulted and beamed ceiling. It is fitted with a chic range of units with oak worktops and quality integrated appliances. The very useful utility room has a cloakroom off and door to garden. On the first floor are three beautiful bedrooms (two generous doubles) serviced by a stylish bathroom featuring both a roll top bath and separate shower enclosure. The cottage is set within beautifully landscaped and planted, level lawned gardens. Picket fencing creates separation and archways are covered with climbing shrubs. The front garden has a handsome flint wall to border and the rear garden has numerous useful outbuildings with power. The garden is full of colour with camelias, rhododendrons and spectacular hornbeams. A winding stream borders one side with a deck spanning the banks - a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the peaceful soundtrack of the garden. A driveway provides parking and gives access to the detached garage.
