Don’t judge 49 New Road by its front elevation — it conceals the fact it is a sprawling property set over three floors.

It’s a rare find too, having been in the same family for more than half a century.

Now on the market chain-free, the detached period home has retained many of its original features.

It stands in a large garden, with several mature trees, including a mulberry, Scots pine, yew and walnut.

There are fruit trees too, some of which date back to its market garden origins.

The rear elevation offers panoramic views overlooking the River Yar, Culver Down, Sandown Bay and Bembridge.

In the foreground is Brading Marsh Nature Reserve and there are plenty of footpaths enabling you to explore this picturesque area.

The property also offers easy access by rail to both Shanklin and Ryde, where there are passenger links to Portsmouth.

It is approximately two miles from Sandown and five miles from Ryde and is on a regular bus route to both towns.

To the front of the house there is a large garage/workshop, with hardstanding for two to three cars.

At the rear are two attached outbuildings, with a further workshop/storage space.

The front door leads into the hallway, with an en-suite bedroom to the left and a reception room to the right.

Downstairs you reach the kitchen/diner, two more good-sized bedrooms, a utility area, family bathroom and living room.

The refitted kitchen is a generous 16ft by 13ft (extending to more than 15ft into the bay window).

There are attractive wood-block worktops and a range of white, gloss-faced cupboards, tiled splashbacks and ceramic tile flooring.

Integrated appliances are included, such as the inset halogen electric hob with extractor unit over and a built-in electric oven and grill.

On the top floor of this home you come to bedrooms one and two, which are served by a shower room. All the rear windows enjoy superb countryside views.
