Winstone Farmhouse This handsome period farmhouse has been extensively and sensitively renovated and modernised by the current owners. The renovation works carried out over the last 8 years have included complete internal modernisation, with insulation to the downstairs external walls, new electrical, plumbing and heating systems were also installed with cast iron radiators fitted. HDMI wiring has been laid on to a series of wall mounted television points. New bespoke hardwood windows with slimlight double glazing have been installed, along with wide plank engineered oak flooring to the ground floor. The house is not listed and benefits from large windows which make the most of the fine views, front and rear, from virtually every room. Chimneys and fireplaces were renovated and two woodburning stoves installed.

Adjoining the farmhouse is The Old Dairy, an old stone building offering further potential, whilst to the west of the farmhouse is a further stone barn. In addition to the extensive parking area, there is a large rear garden, including a variety of fruit trees and a small mature woodland copse, which is an attractive backdrop to the property. The property is located in an attractive rural setting accessed via a track, (shared with two other properties situated on the approach to Winstone Farmhouse) and is also a bridleway giving direct access to excellent country walks/ rides with a network of paths leading to Shanklin Down. To the east are the former stone barns which are in a separate single ownership and are currently undergoing residential conversion and now have their own driveway. This attractive setting provides both lovely country views and attracts an array of wildlife whilst the south coast of the Island and town of Ventnor are just a short drive away.
