BINSTEAD OUTSKIRTS

Photo 25

This chain free pretty cottage is one of Binstead's best keep secrets. It sits well back from the road and has more than generous mature gardens almost completely screening its charms from the surroundings. The well established gardens extend to almost 1/3 of an acre creating a peaceful oasis for those looking for a quieter lifestyle and we feel that with so much external space there is potential for further extension to the cottage. However, its desirability does not end there, the original parts of the cottage are stone built and they have retained such internal features as beamed ceilings, parquet flooring, rustic wooden front door and what appear to be original latch handle wooden doors internally. The cottage has been largely well maintained over the years yet now offers a tremendous opportunity to improve and/or modernise to meet the requirements as your bespoke home. The layout sees a majority of the rooms at ground level future proofing the property for single floor living should this ever be needed. There is a comfortable lounge with a log burner as its focal point and parquet flooring, this flows through to the separate dining room and on into the kitchen/breakfast room. The double glazing conservatory is the ideal vantage point to overlook the pretty gardens and this seamlessly connects to the raised sun terrace to the rear. There is a downstairs bedroom and bathroom although this could easily form a separate office or work from home space. Upstairs and there are a further two bedrooms with the larger having an en suite shower room. The location is towards the outskirts of Binstead yet close enough to the village centre to remain convenient. Buses pass at the end of the road and you will merge into the surrounding countryside should you travel southwards inland. Binstead has its own natural beach popular with walkers and this sits adjacent to the coastal path which circumnavigates the whole Island should you feel the need to explore on foot. Ryde is the nearest principle town and here you will find one of the Island's best selections of retail shops and associated facilities and all just a few minutes drive away. Other notable local provisions include Ryde Gold Course, Fishbourne Car Ferry and mainland passenger connections from Ryde Esplanade and Pier.
