Located on a sought-after road in the centre of Bembridge village, Michaelmas Cottage has a beautifully styled interior following a refurbishment in 2010 to provide open plan accommodation with well-appointed kitchen, bathrooms and all new doors and décor comprising seagrass carpets and exposed wood flooring with panelled walls throughout the downstairs. The property offers three bedrooms, a family bathroom and downstairs shower room as well as an attractively planted enclosed rear garden with a southerly aspect. There is an off road parking space located at the front of the house and at the rear is a landscaped low maintenance garden and versatile summer house.

The village of Bembridge has a good range of small shops for everyday needs, including an excellent fishmonger with freshly caught fish, a farm shop, a butcher, a bakery, a refillery and several good restaurants. Bembridge Harbour has extensive mooring facilities and two sailing clubs. There are wonderful coastal walks, and sandy beaches directly accessible from the end of Ducie Avenue. The beaches are perfect for swimming, kite-surfing, paddle boarding and beach-combing. A more comprehensive range of shopping facilities is available in the county town of Newport (13 miles) and the nearby town of Ryde (7 miles). Located close to the eastern most point of The Island.
