Constructed in 1886 and following several upgrades in recent years, The Lodge on Main Road Alverstone offers a comfortable and spacious family home surrounded by pretty landscaped and very private gardens. With stone and brick fronted elevations with hung tile gables and a clay tile roof, the property is particularly attractive and sits in an elevated position well back from the road on a substantial plot. The in and out driveway with garage/annexe to the side creates an impressive curb appeal, whilst inside interiors blend original period features of picture rails, skirting boards and doors with newly decorated sisal carpets, colour schemes and a modern kitchen. In the garage block to the side, there is now a family room, which could equally provide a self-contained annexe and on the first floor there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which being ensuite.

The Lodge is uniquely situated amidst wonderful countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, adjacent to a bridle path with direct access to lovely country walks and close proximity to cycle paths which cross the Island. There is a nature reserve nearby housing a popular red squirrel hide. Alverstone is a short drive from beaches on the south eastern coast with nearby towns of Sandown and Shanklin having a range of facilities including a golf course and there are regular trains providing good connections with Ryde and mainland ferry links. From the property Ryde School is approximately 8 miles away and Sandown Bay Academy 2 miles away.

Outside
Set back from the road with an in and out gravelled driveway and behind a magnificent Lime tree and Plain tree. The Lodge benefits from beautiful lawned gardens wrapping around the sides and rear. There is access on both sides with a five bar gate allowing vehicular access to the rear garden which is largely laid to lawn and surrounded by mature hedging on each side extending in all to approximately 0.5 of an acre. Decking leads to a paved courtyard, ideal for outdoor dining around the garden pond with border boasting a range of shrubs, lavender and colourful planting.

Parking for several cars and in addition to the original garage, now an annexe, there is space to the side through the gates for a garage subject to the necessary planning consents and approvals.
