Tanahlot is the home that keeps on giving — both inside and out.

A serious amount of home and gardens are on offer at this unique, detached property in pretty Brighstone village.

Built in the 1950s by (and for) a member of one of the Island’s most well-known and respected builders, you can be assured the layout and standard of build are top-notch.

As you enter, there is a useful porch for coats and boots before a hardwood door to the L-shaped hallway. This is an attractive space and, as you have a bedroom, bathroom, utility area and external access via the boot room down one end, this gives you the flexibility to create a self-contained annexe if necessary.

The living space has been designed to maximise the sunny rear aspect, with a wide bay window and a door leading out to the garden. This homely room is a good size for all the family to get together, at 24ft by 13ft.

There is gorgeous walnut parquet flooring and a Clearview stove for when you need a cosy night in.

The parquet flooring continues into the dining room, which has a front aspect to catch the morning sun. A sliding door leads to the neutrally decorated kitchen/breakfast room, which has space for a table and chairs.

The vast downstairs accommodation includes four of the bedrooms, as well as a bathroom with a white suite.

Upstairs, the landing is spacious enough to add a desk for a study area. It leads to the master bedroom, which is a lovely double room with eaves storage and dormer windows to both the front and rear. It features beautiful bespoke oak fitted wardrobes and drawer units.

Bedroom six is also on this floor and would make an ideal nursery or child’s room as it has a limited-height sloping ceiling.

A fully tiled bathroom completes the accommodation.

Outside is another equally impressive story.

Tanahlot is surrounded by large, private and productive gardens. The front garden is laid to lawn with vegetable beds and well-stocked flower borders.

Fruit trees include two apple varieties, plum, pear and fig.

The wide side garden leads around to the rear with a useful attached store.

The sunny rear garden is again laid to lawn, with raised beds and a pond with water feature. Further outdoor areas include a paved, walled terrace and a south-facing seating area with climbing plants.

Solar panels, a greenhouse, car port and garage are further assets.
