Whippingham, Isle Of Wight   £350,000

This beautiful Victorian cottage offers a wealth of history, thought to of been built circa 1884 for the occupation of the staff and servants of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in their nearby summer residence of Osborne House. Its location on the fringe of Whippingham, grants access to delightful country walks through what was once the extensive grounds of the Osborne Estate.

The home as been aptly named due to the abundance of wildlife encouraged by the bordering woodland, surrounding farmland and the nearby river and estuary. The owners have regular visits from red squirrels, woodpeckers, foxes, herons and pheasants exploring the garden and its surrounding area. The garden is large and south facing and has been divided to offer the occupants a more practical area at the end, away from the house and a superb, raised deck and formal lawn to bask in the summer sun.

There is a large workshop in the rear garden ideal for storage or hobby space, whilst at the front of the home a brick built original coal shed gives plenty of space for bikes and water sports equipment when you’re not enjoying the wonderful setting that surrounds you. Parking is provided within a gravel driveway adjacent to the coal shed, as well as two additional spaces at the front of the property.

The popular Folly Inn which sits upon the river and provides regular entertainment and a vast menu for its visitors is within walking distance from the home. The regular car ferry from East Cowes to Southampton is a short drive as well as the car ferry link to Portsmouth from Fishbourne.

For buyers seeking easy access to the mainland and a home located perfectly for scenic country walks, this wonderful three-bedroom home is a delight to discover.
