Full Description

This wing of the Methodist Chapel was sympathetically converted to retain the character whilst creating a spacious family home. The detailing in the brickwork, the large arching wooden beams and the celestial windows show the quality of the original structure. The layout has a modern feel with the open plan sitting room/dining room as a central hub and the kitchen, conservatory and study leading off. The wonderful high ceiling in the main reception hall with stairs off showcase the windows and allow for a large gallery landing. All of the bedrooms are generous doubles and the master benefits from an ensuite shower room whilst there is a family bathroom for the other two to enjoy.

Calbourne is a pretty, rural village, much of which is designated as a conservation area and the older part of the village includes the period Church, recreation ground/centre, public house and Winkle Street. The village is situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with superb walks through the surrounding downland and countryside. Nearby Yarmouth and Newtown as well as the beaches of the south coast of the Island are all easily accessible being within 5 miles and there is a regular bus service through to Newport, the Island's commercial centre.
