Full Description

This substantial semi-detached Victorian villa is situated on the edge of Parkhurst Forest offering a quiet rural lifestyle with stunning, panoramic countryside and Solent views. Despite the rural position, the towns of Cowes & Newport, the Island's principle town, are approximately ten minutes drive in either direction offering a wide range of shops and supermarkets, with the town of Cowes having a high speed ferry link to the mainland. Schooling at all tiers can be found in both of the nearby towns.

The property offers spacious accommodation including porch, hall, shower room, large sitting room and kitchen/dining room on the ground floor; three bedrooms and bathroom at first floor level and a further bedroom with en-suite cloakroom occupying the top floor. The home is warmed by Calor gas central heating and is double glazed with extensive gardens incorporating a cottage style courtyard, lawns, planted beds and borders and a working vegetable garden with two sheds. The home enjoys panoramic countryside and Solent views from the property, roof terrace and gardens.
