I admit at this point I am utterly biased when it comes to my beautiful home village! I really wouldn’t live anywhere else on the Island now. It’s friendly, has a great community attitude with lots going on and a full range of excellent facilities including doctor’s, primary school, two good village stores stocked with Island produce, post office, gift shop and pub.
This handsome house always catches the eye when you pass. Its huge, double width plot and beautifully tended vegetable and rose garden always demands a second look. The owner is simply downsizing, literally just down the road, so can testify to the universal love of Brighstone!

Full description

This individual detached house was built in the 1950s by and for a member of the highly respected Buckett building family. Set within very large, level and beautifully planted gardens, the property has a deep and double-width plot offering future potential subject to planning. The living spaces have been designed to maximise the sunny rear aspect and there are three bedrooms on this level as well as a spacious study (or sixth bedroom) and bathroom. There is also a very useful, two part utility room which links to the garden and integral garage. The L-shaped layout of the ground floor creates potential to divide the property to create a spacious self contained annexe. The first floor has a large, bright landing/study area opening to a double aspect master bedroom and the single bedroom, both serviced by a fully tiled bathroom. The house is set within stunning gardens which extend all around. A wide driveway provides plenty of parking and gives access to both the garage and car port. The home also benefits from PV panels which both subsidise the property's electricity and create an income for the owner. With its fabulous positioning close to a bus route and a level walk to the centre of this ever-popular village with its full range of wonderful facilities, the property is one not to be missed!
