Freshwater, Isle of Wight


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Denehurst was constructed in 1908 under a tiled roof and provides extensive and flexibly arranged accommodation which has been modernised by the present owners whilst retaining an array of wonderful original features. The vendors have improved the property immensely and undertaken major works such as installing a solid roof on the conservatory; new high specification kitchen and large summer house/garden office.

Solid oak flooring, approximately 2cm thick has been fitted to much of the house and there are impressive open fireplaces with decorative surrounds to most rooms. There is a relatively new and bespoke high-quality kitchen which leads out into the large sunroom. The bath/showrooms have been upgraded within the past few years and there is an impressive rear sunroom which overlooks the fine garden. Many of the windows have secondary glazing and from the first and second floors there are excellent views across the fields to the Western Approaches to The Solent and Hurst Castle. The current owners have created a wonderful garden - beautifully planted and landscaped making a great setting for the house. There is a pond with a bridge leading to an island - perfect for keeping koi carp and other types of fish. In addition, there is a substantial detached double garage and workshop built adjacent to and in keeping with the house.

The house is well located within walking distance of local beaches including Colwell Bay and with the amenities of Freshwater and Totland including a range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and takeaways all being easily accessible. The well-known Hut Restaurant is about a 10 minute walk from the property with its fine sandy beach and a slipway adjacent. The pretty harbour town of Yarmouth is only about 2 miles away with regular vehicular ferry services to Lymington. The local area has some wonderful coastal and country scenery with excellent walks including along The Downs and the River Yar.
