Steeped in history, this charming property was once a pair of dairy cottages built in 1700, but in more recent times it was converted into a detached country house in an elevated position offering wonderful views. It is now a characterful family home with delightful original features situated in a semi-rural environment on the outskirts of Newport, not far from Carisbrooke Castle and close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
There is a carport at road level with steps up to the property leading to the entrance porch which then opens into the charming dining room with exposed beams and a brick fireplace. From the dining room a door opens into the inner lobby with direct access to the comfortable lounge with its raft of exposed beams, fireplace with a log burner and built in shelving as well as a door to the good sized study/snug or fourth bedroom. This has a charming fireplace and exposed beams and could be ideal for an elderly relative as it also has multi-pane French doors to the garden, so can provide a separate external access.
The kitchen includes plenty of storage units, a built-in oven and hob as well as stand-alone appliances. There is also a utility area and a shower room on the ground floor that services two of the first-floor bedrooms that are accessed via a separate staircase. Both these rooms have built in cupboards with the one bedroom also incorporating an en suite cloakroom. The other staircase leads to the family bathroom and two further bedrooms including one with dual aspect and a vanity basin.
Outside the rear garden is far larger that it might first appear and backs onto another large garden, providing a really spacious feel. It is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs and includes a walled terrace and dining area with steps up to a lawn. There is also a little pond with a seating area and a wood gazebo, a garden storage shed, a chicken coop and run, vegetable beds, a greenhouse and an orchard with figs, apples, pears and cherry trees so is ideal for anyone who wants to develop the ’good life.’ An additional feature in this garden is the historic well that is apparently linked to the well at Carisbrooke Castle.
