It is so lovely to see a transformation in a property from one owner to the next. I have always loved this house – it is wonderfully light and beautifully appointed – in a semi rural location, yet with good access to both Cowes and Newport. A really great family home.

Full description

This beautifully elegant and stylish detached home has been recently re-modelled, offering 3/4 bedrooms; gorgeous kitchen and separate utility as well as a separate snug. There is a cleverly created ground floor shower room as well as first floor family bathroom with both bath and large shower enclosure. Located with good access to both Cowes and Newport, the home benefits from super countryside views to the front and rear, as well as distant sea views. It is warmed by a new oil fired boiler and has large double glazed windows which let the light stream through the house - enhancing its appeal. With plenty of parking at the front and a pleasant rear garden with patio and lawn - this really is a fabulous family home and a bit of a gem.
