A charming, character two bedroom cottage which has been completely refurbished to a very high standard, pleasantly situated in a rural location and set in large beautifully maintained communal grounds extending to around 3.5 acres.
No expense has been spared on the extensive refurbishment which was commissioned by the vendor using the well regarded builders J R Buckett & Son to provide an extremely comfortable home with a smart modern interior. The property has been re-wired, re-plumbed with a new central heating system, replacement timber framed double glazed windows and French doors, a beautifully appointed kitchen with good quality built-in ‘Neff’ appliances and solid granite work top. The spacious sitting room has French doors which lead onto the patio terrace and gardens. There are two double bedrooms with glorious views across the grounds and a modern fitted bathroom with underfloor heating on the first floor.
Stickworth Hall was originally a fine Georgian period property built in the late 1700s and has had various extensions at different periods since. It was originally built as a country residence and was last used as a country hotel until its conversion into apartments and cottages in its more recent history. The property is tucked away at the end of a private lane with convenient access to the close-by cycle path which stretches from Sandown through to Newport along the old railway line. Newport is within a fifteen minute drive away and it is a similar length journey to Lake, Sandown and Shanklin, making this cottage ideally suited as either a permanent or second home/holiday retreat.
