Description

1 Carpenters Cottage is a beautifully presented, two-bedroom period farm cottage situated in a fabulous location not far from the coast and surrounded by the spectacular countryside of the east Wight with far reaching rural views.

1 Carpenters Cottage is a beautifully presented, two-bedroom period farm cottage situated in a fabulous location not far from the coast and surrounded by the spectacular countryside of the east Wight with far reaching rural views.

This home has enjoyed some substantial upgrading, in a sympathetic style to the original building, with country and contemporary styling combining to create a truly special rural hideaway.

1 Carpenters Cottage is surrounded by footpaths, connecting with Brading marshes and the surrounding countryside, and is also just moments from the quintessentially English village of St. Helens, with its classic green at the centre, post office, coffee shop, an excellent Primary School and a doctors surgery. Nearby is St Helens Duver which sits at the mouth of Bembridge Harbour, with its delightful beach café, and the beautiful sandy beaches which are maintained by the National Trust. The sand dunes at St. Helen’s Duver are popular for dog walking, picnics and barbecues. High speed mainland transport links and further amenities are to be found in nearby Ryde.

The cottage retains all of its period charm and rural character, with a welcoming entrance porch, fantastic open-plan kitchen and lounge complete with cosy wood burning stove, and a sun room on the ground floor, and two double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. With gardens front and rear and a gated driveway with private allocated parking for two cars, 1 Carpenters Cottage represents a magnificent opportunity to acquire a semi-rural cottage in an extremely desirable and convenient location.

Approaching from Carpenters Road, the cottage has a rustic façade resplendent in white, with a picket fence and ornate gate onto a path which leads to the front door.

Entrance Porch

The perfect spot to take off muddy boots after rural or beach walks, the entrance porch has a low-level light and provides space for coats and shoes. An open doorway leads into the lounge.

Lounge/Kitchen

6.78m x 3.56m (22’3 x 11’8)
Packed with original character and charm, a light timber floor runs throughout the lounge and kitchen which further enhances the feeling of space and light. There is recessed lighting, exposed original beams all finished in an elegant neutral scheme. Stairs lead to the first floor, with the space under cleverly utilised with bespoke cabinetry affording a nook (perfect for a dog bed) and a further under stairs storage cupboard. A wood burning stove to one corner is a focal point, and enhances the efficiency of the cottage, with a tiled surround and a slate hearth. A window to the front aspect fills the room with light and affords lovely views towards Culver Down. The kitchen is comprised of a useful mix of floor and wall units, finished in smart grey, with light timber roll edged worktops and a white tiled splashbacks. Twin aspect glazing combines with the lounge window to fill the kitchen with natural light. There is space for a fridge, a freezer and space and plumbing for a washing machine. There is an integrated gas hob, with oven under and recirculation hood over, and an integrated stainless steel sink and drainer. The kitchen is also home to the Glow Worm combination boiler, which is just two years old and is neatly concealed in a large kitchen cupboard. A part glazed door leads in to the sun room.

Sun Room

3.78m x 2.39m (12’5 x 7’10)
With a solid roof and three sides of UPVC double glazing, the sun room is a fabulous addition. Currently in use as a dining room and utility space, the sun room also makes a useful boot room, with a lovely rural view from Culver Down to Brading Down and beyond. Spotlights combine with wall lights and there is a hard-wearing timber effect vinyl floor. A stable door leads to the front garden and a part glazed door leads to the back garden.

Stairs to First Floor

From the lounge, a characterful balustrade and a high-quality neutral carpet leads up to the first-floor landing, which has a central light and original country timber doors to bedroom one, bedroom two and the bathroom.

Bedroom One

3.61m x 3.05m (11’10 x 10′)
Well-proportioned and light, bedroom one has a lovely window providing rural views and with a radiator under. The neutral décor is complemented by a feature wallpaper wall, and a light timber laminate floor. A hatch gives access to the loft space.

Bedroom Two

2.90m x 2.31m (9’6 x 7’7)
Fabulous far reaching views stretch from Culver Down over Brading Marsh to Brading Down with Ventnor Down in the background. A double built-in wardrobe affords plenty of useful storage and has beautiful solid timber doors with iron fittings. There is a small radiator and a hatch provides access to the loft.

Bathroom

Luxuriously appointed, the bathroom would be at home in a high-class hotel suite. The bathroom is tiled throughout with large, contemporary grey tiles complemented by a white suite and chrome fittings. The quarter round shower has a standard attachment plus an opulent deluge head and an extractor over. There is a white pedestal basin with contemporary chrome mixer and a low-level WC with dual flush. The bathroom is finished with a sleek black heated towel rail.

Outside

The front lawn continues to the side aspect, enveloping the sun room and on to the rear lawn. The rear garden is a fabulous mix of lawn and mature borders. A hardstanding to the rear elevation provides a home for the large log store, usefully positioned by the back door, and continues on to the potting shed, which has a small patio to one side and neatly conceals a gravel area for bin storage. To the side, a gated gravel driveway leads from Carpenters Road to the car parking area, which is shared between just two homes, and provides two allocated parking spaces for 1 Carpenters Cottage. A gate leads from the parking area to the back garden.
