In thirty years, I have never seen a nicer thatched cottage! Bright, spacious and with good height ceilings, Herveys is certainly pretty special. Add to this an additional self contained detached barn conversion and I think it is unrivalled in this price range. Niton has everything you’d want in a thriving rural village too. School, doctor’s surgery, great shop, pub and coffee house – I love it!

Full description

This picture-postcard Grade II listed house has parts dating back over 450 years with a colourful, smuggler-filled history. However, the handsome thatched roof and thick stone walls conceal a fresh, bright interior, fully equipped for comfortable modern living with large living spaces. The property also benefits from a handsome separate barn which was converted in 2010 to create an appealing one bedroom self-contained cottage. This has been run as a successful AirBnB, or could be used as a flexible way to house an extended family. The main house is warmed by oil central heating and offers beautifully light and well proportioned living spaces of three reception rooms, pretty kitchen/breakfast room; utility room; boot room; ground floor bathroom and further cloakroom. The first floor is accessed by two separate staircases. One side of the cottage houses two gorgeous bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom, with a further double bedroom set in the other side.
The house sits centrally within a large level garden which is arranged as areas of lawn, mature trees and shrubs and paved terraces, with the village church as a backdrop. There is a useful, large storage/potting shed and second garden shed.
The house is enviably positioned in the heart of this ever-popular village, next to the church, yet with a wonderfully secluded feeling. With its appealing, welcoming atmosphere, spacious and flexible living areas, income potential and stunning appearance, we dare anyone not to fall in love with this very special property.
