Ryde, Isle Of Wight £895,000
Great Upton Farm The property occupies a great location on a quiet country lane just to the south of Ryde providing a combination of country views, direct access to walks and riding, with unrivalled access to fast mainland ferry links and Ryde School. The town has a range of shops and restaurants and the surrounding area benefits from a coastline with some great beaches, sailing clubs and opportunities for a wide variety of water sports.
Believed to have originally been built as a Yeomans cottage, this period property (which is not listed) has been extended over the years and now provides an attractive and characterful family home.

There are double glazed windows throughout and a range of period features such as stripped antique pine doors.
