PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Full of traditional charm and character, and set within a peaceful sylvan location, this charming ONE DOUBLE BEDROOM first floor apartment is located within an imposing and attractive period property, " Stonepitts house", with an abundance of heritage style, and retaining many traditional period features.

It is located at the end of a private and secluded close in a highly sought-after and desirable residential location. The instant you step in to this magnificent property, you immediately feel part of its rich past, steeped in local history and heritage!

The property benefits from well maintained communal gardens – with no.4 having a private allocated area – and on-site residents parking. Bus routes are within an easy walking distance, and excellent mainland transport links are also close by. This lovely apartment would make an ideal lock-up-and-leave holiday home, retirement home, or first time buy.
The house gets its name from the Binstead stone pits which supplied the stone from which many of the houses throughout the Island were built, in addition to producing the facing stone for Winchester Cathedral. Part of Stonepitts House have been built at various times but it is believed that the original building dates back to the time of Queen Anne. Apartment 4 was one of the first conversions.
