A wonderfully imposing Georgian style residence completed just five years ago offering stylish and spacious accommodation throughout, occupying a desirable plot on the rural outskirts of Totland Bay.
The concept of Tennyson Cottage was to merge the grace and quality of a period home with modern day living and as such has a grand staircase in the entrance hall, under floor heating (to the ground floor), double glazed sash windows and double doors connecting the principal living rooms to create an open plan flow when needed. The ample kitchen connects seamlessly to the dining area which in turn connects to the living room and hallway. A generous study, utility room and shower room complete the ground floor. The first floor does not disappoint with four double bedrooms, two ensuite and a family bathroom. Externally the options are vast with a barn which lends itself to be utilised as either an annex, holiday let or to just enjoy the space for a workshop/boat store or garage accessed via the vast gravel driveway. The garden has been left as a blank canvas for easy maintenance or for someone to create their own peaceful haven.
The property can be found in the southerly outskirts of Totland Bay and is within easy reach of miles of surrounding downland & coastal walks from Freshwater Bay, along Tennyson Down and High down to the Needles and Alum Bay, where some of the Island’s most stunning scenery can be enjoyed. The shops and amenities in both Freshwater and Totland village centres are approximately a mile away and the harbour town of Yarmouth with its excellent sailing facilities and mainland ferry terminal is within a ten minute drive.
