THIS is the first opportunity anyone has had to purchase Woodcott, as this stately 1930s home has never appeared on the open market before.

Far superior to lots of much newer homes in many respects, the amount of space on offer is what really stands out at this gem of a property, in popular High Park Road.

Part-brick and rendered elevations under a re-slated roof give Woodcott its kerb appeal and the interior follows the same good-looking design.

As soon as you step through the front door, families will begin to appreciate the spacious feel. The hall almost feels like a room in its own right, with an angled feature fireplace and hearth, classy parquet flooring and display shelves.

The lounge is a large, light-filled room and is effectively dual-aspect as it leads to the ample conservatory at the rear of the property. A feature coal-effect fireplace is inset within a stone surround, on a tiled hearth. The neutral walls and carpet here provide a blank canvas for new owners.

The separate dining room offers plenty of space for entertaining or large family gatherings, so if Christmas get-togethers were a little cramped for you last month, think how much a dedicated area could improve things.

Another bonus is the breakfast room, adjacent to the well-proportioned kitchen. The pristine kitchen features quality oak-faced wall and floor units and inset Neff four-burner gas hob. There is a window overlooking the lawned rear garden, with vegetable patch, and a door to the porch. This is a godsend for families needing room to store muddy boots and shoes and will help keep the main entrance hall clean and tidy.

A downstairs WC completes the ground-floor accommodation.

Upstairs, the bedrooms and family bathroom are all sizeable rooms, with the master bedroom having a dressing area and en-suite bathroom. Bedroom two also has the benefit of a shower cubicle and hand basin.

Background views towards The Solent, close proximity to Appley beach, off-road parking and a garage are extra delights.
