Elm Farmhouse

Elm Farmhouse and The Brew House are without a doubt one of most attractive farmhouse packages in West Wight which is now offered to market having been professionally maintained to a high standard over recent years. Semi-rural country houses such as this are rarely available to the market with this particular house befitting from: - stunning/well landscaped and level grounds, a paddock, fabulous exposed beams, a new (built in 2018) oak framed garage building, new kitchen and an inglenook style fireplace.

Constructed of local stone under a Welsh slate roof, it is believed to have been partly remodelled in the Georgian era. Period flagstones greet you in the main entrance hall from an attractive porch and the house has plenty of good-sized double glazed windows, which is not always that common in a house from this era.

The main house offers a substantial amount of internal square foot area; 4 double bedrooms (three of which have en-suite facilities and the 4th has the sole use of a newly installed shower room with w/c), wooden double-glazed windows and four large reception rooms. There is a study/bedroom 5, a wonderful dining room with a bespoke solid oak table with chairs and sideboard (included within the sale). Whilst the house has been tastefully and sympathetically restored to a high standard, care has been taken in retaining the traditional features which are visible throughout this characterful house. The house now benefits from a bespoke kitchen with a range of high-end wall and base units with multiple integrated ovens. The kitchen leads naturally through to the breakfast room, which has been equipped in the same style as the kitchen. A large, timber conservatory/sunroom is located along the northern side of the house with lovely views across the formal grounds to the rear of the property.

ACCOMMODATION

THE BREW HOUSE

Is an impressive detached, two storey, two-bedroom cottage that is located to the south of the main house. This is a good-sized property in its own right and had been traded as a highly successful holiday let over the past five years. Future bookings have been made (but can be cancelled, should a new owner not want to continue with this), and please do contact our office for a copy of the impressive trading income history. The Bew House could also be used as a fabulous 'granny annex' cottage or as overflow accommodation for the main house. It briefly comprises of: - two double bedrooms (one on the first floor and the other on the ground floor), bathroom, shower room and a large kitchen/sitting room, separate dining room . There is an internal staircase and an external stone staircase at the eastern end of the property. Its own formal and private garden is located on the south side and there is ample parking next to the property.

The properties are very well positioned, approximately 9 miles to the south of Cowes and 5 miles east of the historic harbour town of Yarmouth, which allows for a highly accessible area that benefits from close by mainland connections. The Island administrative town of Newport is about 6 miles away. The Island's only National Nature Reserve is at Newtown, just 2 miles north, which is under the control and ownership of the National Trust. This provides access to outstanding woodlands and wildflower meadows and Newtown's unspoilt harbour is a sheltered wildlife haven offering mooring facilities with excellent boating access to The Solent.

THE GROUNDS

A five bar gate leads through to a large gravelled parking area with access off to the newly constructed two bay oak framed garage. The garage building has a very useful mezzanine storage area with power and light. There is a large turning circle and ample of space to park cars. The landscaped grounds extend to approximately 1.87 acres and are laid to formal lawns, with a paddock. There are two other outbuildings (one in the paddock and the other (with power) alongside the lawn. A productive vegetable garden with raised beds that have been well cultivated and a greenhouse can be found along side. On the eastern boundary is a usable well with an attractive hood over.
