A beautiful character four bedroom home sympathetically extended, surrounded by far reaching countryside views with a rural feel, yet conveniently located close to all the amenities that Freshwater offers.
This beautiful character home is located conveniently close to the extensive amenities that the Freshwater offers, yet encompasses the beautiful countryside it is surrounded by with far reaching country views and a rural feel. The property was originally built in the mid 1800’s as the gatehouse to the substantial Freshwater Court, to accommodate 5 gardeners with the stable boy and coachmen residing above the adjacent stable block. Guests were received at the gatehouse when called upon to visit Lord Tennyson of Farringford.
The current owners have embellished the character of the home with sympathetic extensions and subtle modernisation in order to create a sizable family home to suit modern living. The property provides extensive parking within its large gravelled driveway and has gated access that leads into the original cobbled courtyard, where the original stables have been converted into twin garages. The current owners have gained planning permission to convert the original stable block into a holiday let if required and plans can be viewed via the Isle of Wight planning portal under reference number 19/00442/HOU.
The main entrance of the home is accessed by an attractive porch which retains its original wooden door and leads into a pretty hallway finished with flagstone flooring. From here there are two reception rooms, one of which is suitably used as the family lounge, with dual aspect windows, one of which a large box bay allowing ample light into the room. There is an attractive fireplace with a fitted wood burner, providing a great room in which to relax on a winters evening. The second reception is currently used as a private clinic by the current owners, which has an adjoining sun room, and could serve as a great office or additional sitting room depending on your needs. Leading through the ground floor from the main hallway is a music room/library an ideal occasional room for the family.
The extensions to the property incorporate a ground floor cloakroom, utility room and an impressive kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is finished to a high standard with bespoke cupboards, attractive contrasting work tops and a large central island. The dining area benefits from a garden view and access to the raised paved patio via full width bi-folding doors, inviting the garden into the home on a pleasant summers evening.
The first floor has four bedrooms, three of which are substantial doubles, the master the most luxurious. The master bedroom, bedroom’s two and four grant idyllic views across the adjacent field, whilst the third bedroom overlooks the courtyard and woodland beyond. The master suite has built in wardrobes and concealed behind matching adjacent doors is a modern en-suite with an attractive freestanding bath and separate double shower enclosure. The other bedrooms benefit from a lovely modern family bathroom, again providing both bath and separate shower cubicle.
The courtyard accessed from the kitchen and sun room, is a beautiful walled area ideal for entertaining and leads out to the large garden which is enclosed by a natural boundary and has both space for a vegetable plot, a range of mature trees and the lovely raised patio that leads off the kitchen and dining area.
