LOCATED just off Whitecross Lane, in a quiet cul-de-sac with only five neighbouring properties, 1 Lark Rise is an attractive, split-level bungalow.

Designed by an architect, you can rest assured this home delivers on style, as well as hugely comfortable living arrangements.

The welcoming entrance hall sets the tone for the spacious and bright accommodation and leads firstly to the lounge, which is a generous 16ft by 13ft.

This is a dual-aspect room and is located at the front of the home in order to make the most of the stunning downland and countryside views.

The kitchen/diner is another roomy area, with plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. A large conservatory adds to the sociable feel of this room and is the perfect place for pre-dinner drinks or a morning coffee and catch-up with friends, overlooking the pretty garden. You can really enjoy this spot in the summer, as there are double doors out to the side gardens with a beautiful array of shrubs and borders.

The kitchen itself is very well presented, with a timeless range of buttermilk-coloured units and built-in hob and oven. There is a great deal of natural light too, from the rear windows, glazed back door and double doors into the conservatory.

On the ground floor you will also find two double bedrooms, both overlooking the rear garden. A downstairs cloakroom completes the accommodation on this level.

Upstairs, this carefully designed home brings you a stunning master bedroom and a well-appointed family bathroom, with separate bath and walk-in shower.

The large master bedroom includes plenty of wardrobe space and has the benefit of the lovely rural views.

The current owners have ensured this home is in immaculate condition throughout. The choice of neutral colours and quality flooring imparts a modern look and acts as a blank canvas for buyers looking to move straight in, without the hassle of having to undertake an onerous DIY project to make it your own.

Location-wise, Lark Rise is ideally positioned for new owners to enjoy all that both Lake and Shanklin have to offer. It is within easy walking distance of two large supermarkets and a popular dining pub towards Lake, yet is just a short drive from Shanklin, with its array of shops, pubs and eateries, the picturesque Old Village, and glorious sandy beaches.

It comes with its own garage and off-road parking but is also on a regular bus route for non-drivers.
