The original barn dates back to 1700 and now the Grade II Listed dwelling has been comprehensively rebuilt and modernised in 1994 where it was the winner of the Isle of Wight Society for Conservation award due to its excellent craftsmanship, design and re-use of original materials. The barn now provides a wonderful family home in a stunning location with views of surrounding countryside including Knighton Downs to the rear and there are some of the best walking routes available directly from the property with the Bembridge Trail easily accessible. There are three double bedrooms and open plan living space in addition to a large brick-built garage complete with dovecote over. The gardens are beautifully landscaped gardens and very private. The property provides an ideal home or holiday home / holiday let investment property for which its idyllic setting and character will be exceedingly popular.

The property is located in the small hamlet of Knighton situated in the midst of attractive rolling downland designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are excellent walks directly accessible from the property throughout the surrounding countryside. There is easy access to sailing at Seaview and Bembridge; Ryde School (about 4 ½ miles); Newport town centre (about 5 miles). Also convenient are mainland ferry links from both Ryde and Fishbourne (about 5 miles) and East Cowes (about 8 miles)
