Rew Street Farmhouse

Believed to originate from around 1800, this handsome farmhouse is listed, grade II and has a wealth of period features. Deep sash windows to the front elevation combined with impressive fireplaces, an elegant period staircase and some flagstone floors exude character. The house provides flexible, light accommodation over three floors with a cellar beneath and is attached on one side to the original cottage, in separate ownership. To the front is an attractive courtyard (shared with adjacent properties converted from the stone farm buildings and through which the driveway passes). To the rear and side of the house is a large garden of approximately 0.8 acre backing onto fields within which there is a double garage and a shepherd's hut situated in the orchard from which there are great views towards the Solent making for a wonderful retreat with potential for Glamping. The house provides a rare combination of a substantial period home with outbuildings and large garden in close proximity to Gurnard and Cowes.

The property is located in a quiet semi-rural location, close to the village of Gurnard with the sailing club, pubs and the coastal path and sea being within half a mile. Cowes is nearby also providing a good range of shops and restaurants with regular high-speed passenger service to Southampton.
