This rather quirky home is perfect for a buyer who wants a flexible and spacious home, set within large gardens, yet convenient to the local amenities and walks. The bonus of the use of the paddock is also a great extra to the home.

Full description

Positioned on the outskirts of Carisbrooke village and surrounded by woodland, this charming period home offers flexible and spacious accommodation. The home is warmed by gas central heating; has UPVC double glazing and benefits from parking for 3 cars and two garages. The accommodation on the entrance level comprises a bright and spacious lounge, with an outlook to the garden; paddock and woodland beyond; two double bedrooms and a smart bathroom to service them. The garden level is split into two areas which provide a third double bedroom; study; comfortable dining room linked to the conservatory; kitchen and utility room with a chic shower room off.
The large, mature gardens sit to the side and rear of the home and provide areas of lawn with natural planting set against the woodland backdrop. The home also has the added benefit of the use of an adjacent paddock of approx 1.75 acres, which can be used for grazing sheep or horses. This land is leased from the Diocese of Portsmouth for a peppercorn rent and cannot be used to make an income, or be built on - giving a wonderful protection to the area.

The elevated position of the home provides it with extensive gardens to the side and rear. The upper garden is lawned with planted borders; a pathway to the entrance door and side steps which lead down to the lower, main part of the garden.
The main garden is arranged on different levels, with the rear garden set directly below the house, creating a slightly more formal garden. It then extends along to one side, where there is lawn and a wonderfully natural garden which leads through to an area perfect for vegetable beds, with a greenhouse and shed.


The home also has use of a leased paddock of approx 1.75 acres which sits adjacent to the garden. It is leased from the Diocese of Portsmouth for a peppercorn rent and has been used by the current owners since they have lived here. The land can only be used for your own purposes and cannot be built on, nor can you earn any income from the land, protecting this area.
