Fowlsdown Farm

Set in mature gardens of about 0.7 acre, bordering paddocks and enjoying panoramic country views from Appuldurcome Down to Arreton Down. The farmhouse has been extended into an adjacent stone barn which has created a superb vaulted kitchen/living room, complementing the well appointed accommodation within the original house and giving a choice of impressive reception rooms which combine with the gardens to make a great, versatile entertaining space. Attention to detail throughout the property is evident with matching hardwood joinery including the staircase, arched and glazed doors and cupboards built by local craftsman complementing the array of fine period features. There are 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in the main house and ample built in wardrobes and cupboards. All bathrooms have been stylishly fitted with good quality fittings. Cat 5 cabling has been installed and there are hardwood sealed unit double glazed windows. The adjoining self-contained annex has proved a highly popular holiday let bringing in a useful rental income. A gated gravel drive sweeps through mature gardens to a double garage, whilst to the south of the house is a heated swimming pool.

The property benefits from a highly convenient location, just to the east of the village of Godshill, a picture postcard village with pretty thatched cottages, picturesque shops, cafes and pubs. The coastal town of Ventnor with a range of restaurants is about 3.5 miles to the south whilst Newport, Ryde including the car ferry terminal of Fishbourne are all within 20 minutes by car. Country walks can be directly accessed from the property via a right of way which leads to an extensive network of footpaths.
