Substantial family home
Large Detached 4 Bedroomed Chalet Bungalow.
A unique build from the inception, originally built with forethought and much detail by the current, and only, owners in 1960. The land was originally the laundry house for Northwood House in Cowes and the grounds next door housed a horse drawn coach for The House. The 315ft long, wide garden tapers down to a copse, which cannot be built on, and is a habitat for the local wildlife and birds. The building itself was designed around maximising sunlight into the building at all times of the day, thus increasing the light and heat into the property. It still retains the original tongue and groove sepele mahogany flooring in the living area whilst other areas being adapted and improved throughout the years. A conservatory/sun room, solar pv (16 panels) and solar thermal (hot water) systems are additions installed and conscientiously maintained over time.
Approaching The Property
The property is set back from the road and therefore provides a generous driveway with parking for more than 6 vehicles. The boundaries have tidy hedging to one side and fencing on the other. Well kept lawned areas with a tarmac path and drive running between, lay in front of this deceptively spacious property with its half tile hung exterior. The garage, with its up and over door, is to the right hand side of the property adjacent to the entrance to the kitchen. On the left is the glass panelled front door leading into the lobby area.
This bright glazed conservatory style lobby runs along the full length of the building giving main access to the house and a further door at the rear leads to the garden. The downstairs has flexible uses throughout, with extra bedrooms or additional reception rooms. Proving this point, the lobby is an adaptable area and has been used previously as a hallway/lobby, dining area, extending the space from the living area via the sliding patio doors and also as a sun room. Entering the inner hallway, the open tread stairs lead to the first floor and all rooms lead off this bright, neutral and well kept reception area. The living/dining room is L shaped and floods with light from the large patio windows with views across the beautiful garden. The chimney breast now contains a gas fire but was once an open fireplace and a thick carpet now covers the original sepele mahogany tongue and groove floor. Carrying on with interchangeable purposes, there are two downstairs bedrooms one of which is currently being used as a large office. An immaculate white shower room with fully tiled walls and a long built in vanity unit services this lower floor. The final room to explore is the kitchen which is bright and colourful with plenty of wall and base units including an integral Bosche low level oven and a 4 ring gas hob. The double glazed entrance door leads you back to the front garden and the garage.
Leading off the long landing, which runs from the front to the back of the property, are 3 double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a row of storage cupboards.
All bedrooms are bright and light streams through the windows, all with different views over the front, side and to the rear of the property. The front bedroom has a built in wardrobe and under eaves storage and the rear has similar eaves storage along with the Viessmann boiler. The bathroom has fully tiled walls in neutral tones, with an apricot bathroom suite which includes a whirlpool corner bath. The loft hatch has a ladder for access to the boarded roof space.
The rear garden has every aspect you could wish for, from large outside entertaining area, to growing fruits/vegetables to relaxation and peacefulness, this garden has it all. Next to the main house are 2 large patios, separated by raised stone flower beds and steps leading from the higher to lower area. The first terrace has access to the living room via double sliding glass doors and a doorway to the attached garage. The lower area has the garden path running from it, meandering down the edge to the garden stores at the far end. A delightful quiet paradise with an abundance of mature flowers, shrubs and trees, surrounding a manicured lawn with all areas very well maintained. A low fence separates the ornamental side of the garden from the cultivation of fruit and vegetables. Burgeoning Bramley apple, cherry and apricot trees flourish and there are several raised vegetable beds alongside the greenhouse. Beyond the boundary fence is a copse which provides a habitat for the local wildlife and birds. The workshop has electrical power and is adjacent to the garage, both with separate access from the path at the side of the property.
