A very well situated location, 3 mins (0.9 miles) from the Wightlink Fishbourne ferry and 11 mins (4.2 miles) to Red Funnel ferry terminal at East Cowes, it is equidistant between Ryde and the county town of Newport. Several pubs, including The Sloop and The Cedars, are in the high street along with various takeaway establishments, a Tescos Express and a very popular local Mediterranean restaurant. A doctors, dentist and veterinary surgery are also within the village giving a variety of amenities at your finger tips. Recreationally, there are many beautiful walks and cycling tracks in the surrounding area. For any water activities the Royal Victoria Yacht Club is at the head of Wootton Creek. Lakeside is a 4* hotel with spa and restaurants that over looks the water and tranquil countryside, which can also be viewed from the carriages on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway which has a carefully restored station at Wootton.
Approaching The Property
Located in a cul-de-sac, it is set on a raised aspect that can make full use of the fantastic views across the river and down to the pontoon where the property has its allocated mooring. This impressive detached property has off road parking for several cars and an electric up and over door on the large garage. A black wooden door, next to the garage, is a separate access point to a potential self contained annexe. Easily maintained flower beds and lawn sit either side of the driveway and paths lead up to the front door and rear entrance on either side of the building. Wrought iron railings are used as the bannister for the outside steps up to the grey entrance door with a full length glass side panel.
Ground Floor - Garage and Potential Annexe
An extremely large double garage is perfect for kayaks, jet skis, bikes and assorted outdoor sports equipment or even two cars! Complete with light and power, this area has an up and over door that is controlled not only downstairs but remotely from within the house. Wall and base cupboards provide useful storage spaces and work bench as well as housing the consumer unit for the property.
Decorated in neutral colours, and with wood effect flooring throughout, this delightful room, currently a bedroom, has been built on this lower floor with a kitchenette, separate shower room and living/sleeping area. With large built in storage cupboards this would make an ideal rental or self contained space for visiting friends/family.
Entering into the lobby with its wood effect flooring, all rooms span from this long wide hallway. Neutral and pastel colours are throughout this well presented home which gives a calm and quiet aura. The living area with its double sliding glass patio doors, allows light to flood into this room that has access to the balcony and gives a magnificent view of the river and surrounding area.
Black wrought iron railings surround the balcony, which also can be accessed from the dining room, and this peaceful outdoor area is perfect for an additional entertaining area or to relax. Quite beautiful.
The three double bedrooms each flow off the hallway towards the rear of the property thus giving them all garden views and the quietness found here. The main bedroom has built in wardrobes and an ensuite shower room with a white suite. Another bedroom has a built in wardrobe with sliding glass doors.
A bright family bathroom is fully tiled and comprises a bath with over head shower, modern vanity unit under the basin and wc. The cupboard in the hallway houses the hot water tank and the controls for the solar pv as well as further storage options.
Bi-fold doors open into the kitchen with its pale blue 'metro' tiled walls, cream coloured base and wall units completed with a light wood work surface. Integral appliances include a double oven and gas hob with space and plumbing for a washing machine. An additional bonus of a celler is accessed through the floor and has a ladder down to this storage area with lights. Double glass panelled doors lead into the large very bright dining room with its own access to the balcony and more unfettered views across the neighbourhood.
Spreading the width of the property and accessed up a small flight of steps, this well stocked garden has many and varied established trees and shrubs including a fig tree, acer, sedums, a grapevine and lavender bushes. Raised flower beds surround a grassed area which leads through to a shingled seating area, perfect for al fresco eating, with further mature plants and flowers. Lighting and electrical points are useful features for this outside area.
A very short walk from the property, and close enough to be viewed from the house, this pontoon is capable of mooring a 38ft craft. This has a power and water supply.
