An immaculate, chain free, stone built period property located in one of the most sought after hamlets on the Island with fabulous country and coastal views together with five bedrooms and an Aga kitchen.
Dating from the mid 18th century, The Elms is situated in the hamlet of Hulverstone which is surrounded by some of the most stunning countryside the West Wight has to offer. There is an abundance of character, with period features including attractive beams and feature fireplaces. The current owners (architect/surveyor) undertook a professional and thorough modernisation of the property in recent years which includes a high quality extension in keeping with the original structure and important detail such as new lime & mortar pointing.
The vibrant village of Brighstone is located within a few minutes’ drive and the historic town of Yarmouth takes about ten minutes to reach by car and has a regular mainland ferry service. The Elms is also within the eligible distance for Yarmouth Harbour boat mooring. This property benefits from direct access to the footpath leading north onto The Downs with access south to the magnificent rugged coastline with miles of sandy beaches. The surrounding countryside is in the National Trust ownership. Together with the neighbouring village of Brook, Hulverstone offers an excellent community with various events and meetings at The Sun Inn and Village Hall.
The house provides immaculate accommodation with five bedrooms, large dining room, high spec workshop, spacious grounds and useful outbuildings.
