Summary

A beautiful, stone built, detached Georgian style home with high quality detached quad garage and immense barn / workshop / boat store. Situate at the foot of Tennyson Down on the fringe of the West Wight Area of outstanding Natural Beauty.

Description

Tennyson Cottage is a wonderfully imposing Georgian style residence completed in 2012, which offers stylish and spacious accommodation throughout. It occupies a desirable plot on the fringe of The West Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Built by a local builder, the concept of Tennyson Cottage was to blend the grace and quality of a period home with modern day living and as such, an example of this concept is a grand staircase in the entrance hall, under floor heating to the entire ground floor, modern uPVC barred sash style windows and double doors connecting the principal living rooms to create an open plan flow when needed. The ample kitchen connects seamlessly to the dining area, which in turn connects to the living room and hallway. A generous study, utility room and shower room complete the ground floor. The first floor does not disappoint having a large landing, four double bedrooms two of which are en-suite, one with dressing room and a large family bathroom.

Externally, the options are vast with a barn, which lends itself to be utilised as either an annex, holiday let or to just enjoy as a garage, workshop or boat store. Additionally, there is a high quality stone built garage, which could potentially accommodate 4 vehicles with a high security roller shutter and pitched, tiled roof to compliment the host property. This was completed in late 2020, again by a reputed local builder. The house, barn and garage are all interconnected by a vast gravel driveway/courtyard. Generally speaking, the garden areas are easy maintenance and form a blank canvas enabling a new owner to create their own haven.

The property can be found in the southerly outskirts of Totland Bay and is within easy reach of miles of surrounding downland and coastal walks from Freshwater bay, along Tennyson Down and High Down to The Needles and Alum Bay where some of The Island’s most stunning scenery can be enjoyed. The shops and amenities in both Freshwater and Totland village centres are approximately a mile away and the harbour town of Yarmouth with its excellent sailing facilities and mainland ferry terminal is within a ten-minute drive.
