Set on the outskirts of St Helens and Brading, Writleston House is a beautiful, Grade II listed stone property, which is set in an elevated position with stunning countryside views from all aspects. The original building dates back to 1540, with further additions added in the early 1800's. This is a home which is full of charm and period features, including beamed ceilings, deep stone fireplaces and flagstone floors.

The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and is accessed via a stone porch which leads into the entrance hall. To the front of the house there is a sitting room and a dining room, both of which enjoy lovely dual aspects over the grounds and countryside. The drawing room has a deep fireplace, beamed ceilings, parquet flooring and French doors leading into a beautiful wooden and glass period style conservatory; whilst the dining room also has a deep inglenook fireplace inset with a wood burning stove and solid oak mantle over, beamed ceilings and a flagstone floor. Further ground floor accommodation includes a kitchen, a breakfast room and a study to the rear and a family bathroom.

On the first floor there is a galleried landing which has an interesting nook to the front, reportedly where bows and arrows were kept by the owners in the 1500's. Further accommodation on this floor comprises 2 large double bedrooms to the front, both of which enjoy lovely dual aspects, views and

beamed ceilings; a third double sized bedroom to the rear and 2 bathrooms.

The loft space has been converted to provide an additional 2 double bedrooms, a large bathroom and a utility area which could altered into a dressing room or office space.

Externally, Writleston House sits within good sized grounds which wrap to all

sides of the property and incorporates various outbuildings. There is a very spacious, over double sized garage with a good sized roof space, and a second building which is currently divided in to 2 areas but, subject to consents, has the scope to be converted into a wonderful home office, annexe accommodation or a small holiday cottage.

Although the house would benefit from general updating and modernising, it presents a wonderful opportunity for a new owner to do this to their own taste and requirements, especially given the potential the property has to offer, the beautiful location and views, plus the fact that the house has not been available on the open market for over 40 years.
