Bedrooms: 9
One Tennyson

Nestled into the foot of Bowcombe Down, the property has been built to a high specification offering the height of technology in energy efficiency, CAT 6 networking, with WAP to all floors in the main house as well as eco measures, such as a heat recovery system ensuring an ideal temperature with solar panels assisting in the heating of the water throughout the year.

Boasting large windows to all principal rooms, the property is flooded with natural light and its large ground floor living/kitchen/dining room provides a superb area for entertaining, particularly with the addition of a large wrap around patio accessed from the bi-fold doors. The main house also has a cosy cinema room and a children's playroom, peacefully situated at the rear of the main dwelling.

The home has provided a healthy holiday rental income to the current owners, with the main house divided into two dwellings - a penthouse apartment with its own private entrance along with three bedrooms, and the main house having five bedrooms. In addition, what was originally a garage, is separate two-bedroom single storey dwelling located in the grounds.

All of the properties have been thoughtfully separated to give optimum privacy to the residents. The main house has a lockable interconnecting door to the penthouse, making it easy to utilise the main house as one should you so wish.

The property is located in Carisbrooke, close to the County Town of Newport with its range of shops, cafes and restaurants. Nearby is the impressive Carisbrooke Castle and the popular Tennyson Trail which leads up from the adjacent public footpath giving occupants immediate access to the glorious countryside.


Accessed through a lockable gate that leads from the car port, a smart paved pathway leads up to the front of the house and the large patio area.
