An immaculately presented two bedroom cottage pleasantly situated within the Stickworth Hall complex which has approximately 3.5 acres of well maintained communal gardens on the rural outskirts of Arreton.
Stickworth Hall was originally a fine Georgian period property built in the late 1700s and has had various extensions at different periods since. Originally built as a country residence Stickworth Hall was last used as a country hotel until its conversion into apartments and cottages during its more recent history. This pretty Cottage has been tastefully decorated throughout to incorporate the original character with a fresh modern feel. The ground floor has a fully equipped kitchen which is fitted with sleek high gloss cabinets and a bright and airy sitting room with dual aspect windows with original exposed beam. There are two good sized bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. The property benefits from double glazed windows throughout, gas central heating, ample parking and the pleasure of the extensive communal gardens, lake and out-houses.
Stickworth Hall can be found 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.
