A RECENT large extension to 106 Carisbrooke Road, Newport, has resulted in this unique family home with huge amounts of living space.

With all the charms of a detached Victorian residence and all the benefits of modern updates and additions, this property will be the dream ticket for those requiring space and character, set within easy reach of the Island’s capital town.

There are the archetypal high ceilings, coving and cornices and feature fireplaces you would expect from a property of this provenance, plus the more unusual bonus of a cellar.

The contemporary cube-style extension was added by the current owner and provides the perfect social space for entertaining as it opens onto the kitchen and incorporates room for a dining area. The sitting area here overlooks the pretty rear garden and there are a multitude of windows and skylights, plus French doors onto the patio area, all generating a great deal of natural light.

As the heart of the home, it’s likely new owners will spend much of their time here but there is a lot more downstairs accommodation that shouldn’t go to waste.

A formal dining room, separate sitting room and a spacious lounge are all part of the substantial package and will give families space to spread out.

A downstairs cloakroom is a handy addition and there is also a garage and a lean-to, perfect for storage.

The four bedrooms are found upstairs and are all excellent double rooms. The master bedroom benefits from a contemporary en-suite bathroom with white suite, including a p-shaped bath.

The three other bedrooms share the family bathroom, with double sinks and an attractive, oval, freestanding bath. The style here echoes the modern lines in the kitchen, bringing this Victorian home up to date with 21st century trends.

Beautifully presented throughout, this magnificent family home also comes with a well-manicured garden to the rear and off-road parking for several vehicles to the front.
