Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
An elegant Georgian house nestled away off of one of the most sought-after roads in Ryde. Copsefield House sits in approximately 0.5 of an acre and takes the lion's share of a larger characterful building. Built in 1812 and lovingly restored by the current owners, it was said to be the home of Queen Victoria's private physician and boasts a stunning Redwood in the garden, also believed to have been gifted by the Queen. This home is oozing with original features including; giant bay windows overlooking the garden and smaller prettier windows that overlook the Solent, fireplaces, window shutters and a spectacular porch that was added in 1878. There is a right of way directly to the beach that is private to the building, a lodge in the grounds for guests and ample parking for many cars. Secluded and accessed via electric gates, visible from the sea yet from the land, you would barely know this property existed.
