Sometimes, even after 30 years in the industry, you just fall for a property. It took just one glimpse into the fantastic garden of Bindaloo and I was smitten. It really is like your own private Ventnor Botanic Gardens. Then the house is like stepping into a high-end Ideal Home 1960 exhibition – the styling is just wonderful! I can’t wait to show it off…

Full description

This unique, spacious detached house has been in the same ownership since constructed in 1960 and is warmed by gas central heating with UPVC double glazed windows. The property is set within the most spectacular gardens which were originally part of the historic Madeira Hall. It was clearly built to a high standard with a wide, elegant hallway accessed from the rear. The stylish kitchen is contemporary to the original house, with smart Amtico floor and well proportioned, separate dining room adjacent. The comfortable lounge has an open fire and large picture window which frames a breath-taking, elevated view over the garden. The same view can be enjoyed from the decadently large master bedroom. All four double bedrooms, arranged over two floors, have built-in wardrobes and are serviced by facilities on both floors. A driveway to the side provides plenty of parking and gives access to the tandem-length garage. The house sits towards the end of a quiet, exclusive Lane in a Conservation Area and is surrounded by the most stunning gardens. The spectacular, very large rear gardens have been lovingly created and maintained by the current owner over the last sixty years and are a real gardener's delight. A sunny conservatory sits separate from the house in this area creating a wonderful garden room with its attached workshop.
