Property Summary

“Holly Glade” is located in a quiet, residential close within the village of Shorwell, which lies between the County town of Newport and the village of Brighstone. The property is constructed of red brick under a concrete interlocking tile roof and has been VERY WELL MAINTAINED by the present owner, who has decorated and carpeted the interior in neutral colours.

The accommodation is of a very good size and offers a lounge with “Clear View” stove, a bright and well fitted kitchen and dining room and a downstairs WC and shower room on the ground floor, whilst upstairs, there is a good sized landing, an exceptionally large master bedroom, which could be divided to provide either a 4th bedroom or an en-suite, subject to obtaining the necessary Building Regulations; 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom/WC.

The interior is warmed by an oil fired central heating system and with the exception of the garage, the property has modern UPVC double glazed windows and doors and offers beautifully presented accommodation that would make a superb family or retirement home.

“Holly Glade” stands on a good sized plot, with lawned gardens to the front, which could be used to provide additional parking space. To the rear of the house there is a private garden which is fenced and is laid to lawn with an ornamental fish pond and mature shrubs and plants.

The village of Shorwell is considered to be a popular and sought after area to live and offers a small, local shop and Sub Post Office, as well respected Pub that offers excellent beers and food. In addition, there is a bus service to Newport and to top it all, access to miles of fantastic walks through the surrounding countryside over the downs and towards the stunning coastline of the West Wight.
