Yarmouth, Isle of Wight


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Located off the asphalt section of Cranmore Avenue, this is a substantial semi-rural package which provides extensive accommodation with up to 5 bedrooms. The current owners have undergone a major and extensive refurbishment project on the house (and grounds) which has created light accommodation with large rooms, most of which provide superb views over the garden beyond. Neutral decoration colours have been used throughout.

Funakoshi is set within truly stunning, level, gardens which have in the recent past been opened to the public, illustrating their appeal. This residential package offers the 'good life' located close to the coast and historic harbour town of Yarmouth but also offers another plants man/woman the opportunity to continue running this fabulous garden. If fine gardening is not your interest then there is a good opportunity to create a small holding with a paddock at one end of the property.

One of the great qualities of this property is the substantial outbuildings providing high-quality workshops/garaging and other rooms. This provides space for tinkering on cars, bikes, boats and woodworking and has its own single phase power supply.
