About this property

Idyllic Countryside Cottage

Nestled within the embrace of history and modernity stands this exquisite Seely cottage, a testament to timeless design and contemporary refinement. Originally envisioned by the esteemed Lord Seely in 1860, this home has since undergone a meticulous modernization by its current owners, ensuring a harmonious blend of heritage charm and present-day comforts, thoughtfully arranged to cater to modern living.

The home unfolds to reveal a gracious lounge/dining area, a well-appointed kitchen, a charming conservatory suffused with natural light, a convenient downstairs WC, and practical utility spaces including a boot room. Ascend to find sanctuary in three generously sized double bedrooms, accompanied by a family bathroom offering both luxury and functionality.

Beyond its walls lies a verdant oasis spanning just over a third of an acre, where manicured lawns invite leisurely strolls and moments of repose. Formerly a bountiful vegetable patch, the garden now hosts an enclosed children’s playground, a serene patio adorned with a power point for al fresco entertainment, and a delightful Summerhouse positioned to capture the sun’s rays and scenic countryside vistas. Completing this outdoor haven are a shed and fruit-bearing trees including hazelnut, mulberry, apple, and elderberry, each adding their own flourish to the landscape.

Nestled along Gatcombe Road, flanked by hazelnut trees and wild garlic blooms, this residence resides within an enclave of natural splendour. Acres of newly planted vineyards and fertile farmland envelop the area, painting a picturesque backdrop for daily life. A short stroll along the lane reveals the secluded majesty of ‘St Olaves’, a centuries-old church steeped in history and tranquillity. For the adventurous spirit, myriad walking trails beckon, leading from Gatcombe to neighbouring Chillerton and beyond, including scenic routes to the storied Carisbrooke Castle.

Despite its idyllic seclusion, the heartbeat of island life is mere moments away, with Newport, the bustling central town, just a leisurely 10-minute drive. Here, a tapestry of amenities awaits, ensuring convenience without compromising the serenity of rural living.
