Stonepitts Close, Ryde, Isle of Wight, PO33 3NH
6 Stonepitts House is a spectacular apartment in a period building, and has been completely renovated and upgraded to a magazine standard throughout by the current owner.
A sweeping gravel drive leads you from a quiet residential road to the tucked away location of Stonepitts House and to the grandeur and beautiful architecture of this Queen Anne mansion. This could be a country estate and yet is just outside the centre of Ryde with all its shops, restaurants, schools and fast transport links to the mainland. Sandy beaches at Ryde are plentiful and within a few minutes’ drive.
The well-maintained communal gardens surrounding the building provide a tranquil environment with mature trees and lawns and there is ample parking around the circular driveway with its central island and lantern light.
Apartment 6 is on the second floor and is accessed via the building’s large solid gothic front door with an inner porch and further internal glazed door leading to the communal hall and the impressive central staircase to the upper floors.
Beneath a gothic arch, the private door to number 6 opens into this stunning apartment. The apartment has been comprehensively refurbished to create an outstanding contemporary space with superb finishes and décor and care has been taken to showcase the original character features of the building.
