Full Description

Enjoying an exceptionally attractive and quiet position accessed from a private road. Woodend was built in 1974 within wonderful surroundings of the former walled garden of nearby Brook House on the fringe of this particularly sought-after coastal village. The house provides particularly light accommodation that has been modernised sympathetically over the years with the careful selection of reclaimed materials, making for a particularly attractive and characterful home. All of the principal rooms enjoy great views over the gardens and surroundings whilst this stunning setting provides further potential. In recent years the current owners have converted "the barn", a period stone outbuilding set within the walls of the garden, into a hugely characterful two bedroomed annex, whilst there is also a separate modern store building.

Situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, set between rolling downland providing wonderful walks with Brook beach being approximately 600 metres to the south. There is direct access from the property to some of the Island's most scenic coastal and country walks. Brook beach and the adjacent Compton beach are popular with swimmers, surfers and kite surfers and forms part of the Island's Heritage Coastline. The nearby village of Brighstone (approximately 2 ½ miles away) has a range of local shopping facilities, a doctor's surgery and a primary school, whilst there is a pub a short walk away in nearby Hulverstone. Equally, Freshwater is easily accessed being about 4 miles along the scenic coastal road and provides a further range of shops and supermarkets. Yarmouth with its popular harbour, range of restaurants, shops and ferry links to Lymington is about 5 miles away.
