BUILT in 2001, Highbank House is a spacious, detached house, located in an exclusive cul-de-sac of equally attractive executive homes.

It is close to Shanklin Old Village, the town centre and the beach, yet most people would never know it was there.

It offers highly flexible accommodation, with up to five double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite.

It would make an ideal family home, but is also well-suited to anyone with elderly parents or independently minded teenagers living with them, as it offers up to four ground-floor bedrooms, a walk-in shower room and utility area with easy access.

There is also a brick-paved driveway with off-road parking for up to three vehicles and level access from the road.

Highbank House is essentially an upside-down home, so the large dual-aspect lounge adds a certain wow factor to the first floor.

The light-filled lounge has an iron-railed balcony at the front, with views over the cul-de-sac and surrounding countryside.

The lounge leads into an amazing conservatory at the back of the house, with French doors on both sides leading out into the terraced garden.

The first floor includes a large, modern kitchen/breakfast room with an integrated double oven, electric hob, integrated fridge/freezer, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and French doors leading to the rear garden.

There is also a large master bedroom with an en-suite shower room.

The owners have been at the house for eight years and have made a number of improvements, inside and out, during this time.

Part of the glory of Highbank House is undoubtedly its secluded rear garden, which is terraced and offers a range of established flowers, trees and shrubs, skilfully landscaped to provide several hidden areas.

There are two patio areas, a large decking area, two garden sheds and a lawned area.

There is also gated side access to the rear garden, which is handy if you need to bring larger items up from the road into the sheds for storage purposes.
