CUTE, cosy and typically cottagey, this Newbridge home is only around ten years old so will prove a low-maintenance option for those looking for a traditional-style property.

There are mod-cons too, which further boost the appeal of this attractive countryside package, such as underfloor heating and a boiler (located in the garage), which supplies the hot water supported by solar panels.

Situated in Main Road in the heart of this quintessentially English hamlet, Stone Cottage will be irresistible for country lovers and outdoor types, yet it’s only a short drive from Newport and Yarmouth, with its ferry links to the mainland.

The pretty home will also be an instant hit with anyone who appreciates solid wood features, with all doors off the hall and the staircase and balustrade in bare wood.

Bedroom three is located downstairs, with a view over the ample front driveway, enhanced by the five-bar gate entrance. Should a third bedroom be surplus to requirements, this space could easily be used as a study, hobby room or games room.

The lounge has the all-important log burner as a focal point, with a flagstone hearth, brick surround and wooden mantle adding character. There are French doors out to the large decking area, where you will be able to thoroughly enjoy the peace and tranquility which define this rural spot.

The spacious kitchen/diner features a built-in oven and hob, with extractor over. There is a window overlooking the rear garden and a part-glazed door to the side. The cream-coloured units are complemented by tiled flooring in a neutral shade, while the underfloor heating means there’s no need for slippers to keep your feet warm.

The upstairs bedrooms continue the theme of cottage-style character, with the eaves adding extra charm. Both are decorated in a neutral palette, enabling new owners to put their own stamp on their new home.

The family bathroom is more top-end hotel than country cottage, with contemporary his and hers sinks, a P-shaped bath and shower over.
