A delightful period house set in a mature garden and with wonderful sea views, a short walk from Ryde School and the seafront
Northview Originally believed to be a farmhouse and one of the oldest houses within Ryde, Northview has been subsequently extended over time to provide a fine period home with wonderful views over the mature gardens to The Solent from the principle rooms. The house is Listed, Grade II and retains an array of period features ranging from sash windows, floorboards, the staircase and some flagstone flooring.
Northview retains a great deal of the original character resulting in a charming, organic family home. Situated in a quiet yet highly convenient location within the Conservation Area, there is easy access to the seafront, shops, restaurants, mainland ferry services and Ryde School. A small adjoining cottage can be used as part of the main living accommodation or be used as a small separate annexe with it’s independent access. The house is accessed from both Spencer Road and Market Street. The mature gardens provide a beautiful, established setting and include parking for a number of cars within the gated access from Spencer Road.
Accomodation The entrance porch leads into the entrance hall, running the depth of the house with an elegant period staircase and a rear door opens to a covered passage way leading to a rear access onto Market Street.
A well-proportioned sitting room has Solent views and a gas fire set in a period surround.
The dining room has a large bay window and wonderful garden sea views and a wood burning stove. There is a simple fitted kitchen with oven, hob and slim- line dishwasher whilst the utility room opposite has flagstone flooring, the gas-fired boiler and a period range cooker with cupboards to either side. Beyond is a useful boot room with shelving flooring.
First floor To the front are two large double bedrooms, both with period fireplaces and panoramic sea views, with plenty of space for seating areas. To the rear of the house there is dressing room and 2 bathrooms which are simply fitted. There is also a walk in linen cupboard with direct hot water cylinder.
Second Floor To either side of the landing which itself has wonderful views are 2 further double bedrooms both having superb views over the Solent and Hampshire coast.

Outside The principle gardens lie to the front of the house and comprise a series of lawned areas interspersed by an array of mature trees and shrubs providing a delightful setting.
