An impressive country home set in an elevated position commanding fabulous views over its own grounds and the beautiful surrounding countryside.

In all the house extends to in excess of 4,000 sq. ft, providing a fabulous opportunity for those seeking a family home.

Within the grounds of the property is a Grade II listed kiln, forming part of the Hillis brick works which closed in 1955. It appears that the kiln was probably the last to be built in the yard and there is map evidence the brick-yard dates back to the mid 1800's. The owner of the yard was William Pritchett who was the great grandson of the first Pritchett making bricks on the Island from the 1760s.

Situated about 2 miles away from Gurnard with its sailing club, pubs, village shop and cafés, the house is within 3 miles of the centre of Cowes, (with high speed ferry service to Southampton, a good range of shops, restaurants and world-renowned sailing facilities) and 3 miles of Newport.
