PLENTY of charm-filled living space with a relaxing feel, more space to exploit and an acre of grounds looking over adjoining fields to countryside and the sea is the enticing scenario at a property near Gurnard.
The Byre, at Rew Street, is a superbly converted Grade II listed stone building dating back around two centuries, which has been improved by its owners to provide welcoming four/five-bedroom accommodation.
At right angles to it, around an attractive gravelled and lawned courtyard and the same age, is The Dairy, a long single-storey detached building comprising a characterful one-bedroom annexe, store room and 70ft-long workshop/garage providing lots of potential.
Completing the great package are well-kept gardens with shrub borders running along each side of The Byre and opening out into a sweeping rear expanse of lawn with a willow-shaded pond, trees along the border and super views to the entrance of Southampton Water.
Creating character in the property are old beams, stripped pine doors and some exposed painted stonework with modern-day comforts, including a stylish contemporary family bathroom, fitted kitchen, gas central heating and double glazing.
Ideal for a relative, teenager or generating an income, The Dairy also has exposed beams.
Its lounge includes a woodburner, a pull-down ladder to a mezzanine level and an opening to the fitted kitchen. Doors lead to a double bedroom and a wet room with shower.
Fronting both buildings is extensive parking space.
The Byre’s large hall ideal as dining space and has wooden stairs to the first floor and an opening to the lounge. This cosy triple-aspect room is warmed by a multi-fuel stove in a stone fireplace and has French doors to the garden.
A rear-facing study could be a fifth bedroom and is situated close to a cloakroom with shower and WC.
Looking out to the sea and garden and with garden access on both sides is the large, airy kitchen/diner with lovely mellow pine parquet flooring. The country-style kitchen has a mix of cream Shaker-style and pine units, wooden worksurfaces, a butler sink, an integrated dishwasher, space for a range cooker and large fridge-freezer.
More fitted cupboards and plumbing for a washing machine can be found in the utility room.
The sun room, with heating, a solid roof and two sets of Fench doors to the garden is a great vantage point.
An inner upstairs landing with potential study space and the stylish modern family bathroom off leads to the double-aspect master bedroom with views to the sea and an en-suite shower room.
Off the main landing are two double-apect, double-sized bedrooms — one with a view to the sea — and a single-sized bedroom, all with attractive beam features.
