THERE can be few places more picturesque and sought-after on the Isle of Wight than the beautiful Winkle Street in Calbourne.

Honeybee Cottage in Barrington Row has two/three bedrooms and is situated in a stunning position within Winkle Street, which has changed little in many decades.

Homes in Winkle Street rarely come on to the market, so this is a unique chance to own one of these historic cottages.

This Grade II-listed cottage in rural West Wight has wonderful countryside views and it is beautifully presented throughout.

This characterful home occupies a tucked away position in Winkle Street and the direct location is one that is hard not to fall in love with because its rural surrounds and chocolate-box cottage neighbours create one of the most idyllic positions. 

This particular cottage, while offering all the character and charm that you hope for in a Grade II-listed property, was actually only built approximately 45 years ago, so it is a more energy efficient property than many older cottages.

The current owners have ensured the property remains true to a stone‐built cottage, with period features throughout the internal space. 

The warm and welcoming entrance leads into the spacious lounge which can be heated by the central log burner. 

The modern kitchen is again a good-sized space with all the mod‐cons you could wish for. 

There is a handy downstairs WC and third bedroom/dining room completing the ground floor space.

Upstairs the décor remains beautifully finished with a spacious landing and two good-sized bedrooms complemented by a family shower room. 

The master bedroom also benefits from a walk‐in wardrobe.

The outside space here to the front offers off-road parking, while the rear garden provides a spacious area with plenty to keep you busy, with an abundance of fruit trees and two Lushington log stores. 

The current owners have chickens, bees and vegetable plots, while also occupying a position with 360-degree views and a stunning outlook onto the countryside that surrounds it.

The large rear garden has four sheds, a greenhouse and a summerhouse.

Calbourne is just a few miles drive from the county town of Newport, or the West Wight towns of Freshwater and Yarmouth.

The nearest mainland transport link is the Wightlink Yarmouth-Lymington ferry.
