IN DAYS of yesteryear, Rookley was named after the many rooks that made their homes in the thickly wooded area around the village.

Now, though there may be a fewer trees and rooks, the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful. Yet it’s a conventient spot to reach Newport in a jiffy while still benefiting from the local shop and amenities.
Hillcrest is found on Niton Road, with The Chequers Inn nearby and Rookley Country Park also close at hand.
At the magnificent property, with 4.5 acres attached, you have your very own slice of rural paradise to enjoy as well as the most exceptional views.
In fact, you could say the views from Hillcrest are a procrastinator’s dream —many an hour could easily be whiled away as you admire the exquisite garden and surrounding countryside panorama.
The views really are that special and are without doubt part of the wow-factor of this home.
Hillcrest is a large detached property that has been extensively refurbished to provide a modern living space with light, airy rooms. Every attention to detail has been paid and the finish is pristine. It really is difficult to find fault with this property.
Outside there is a paved driveway, opening into a front parking area. There is a large detached garage and lovely front garden that is private and secluded — driving past Hillcrest, you would not know there is a secret front garden.
To the back, there are beautifully manicured formal gardens, three large paddocks and a large outbuilding as well as staged balconies to allow you to enjoy this space. Beyond there is also gated access into large well-kept paddocks.
Internally, there is a lot to love about this property.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and gloriously high ceilings.
There is a large family bathroom as well as an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom.
As an added bonus, the master bedroom has the most wonderful far-reaching rural views.
Downstairs on the ground floor there is a lot of spacious accommodation on offer.
There is a utility room with side door, airing cupboard, shower room, large kitchen with space to dine and phenomenal views, a generous L-shaped lounge with a dining area and an adjacent conservatory.
The lounge, conservatory and dining area all enjoy the countryside vista and have French doors to take you straight out onto the elevated balcony.
There is also an additional reception room, which could easily be the fourth bedroom, as well as a large entrance hall and incorporated storage spaces.
Final thoughts on Hillcrest are simple. This home is as exquisite as the views that it gets to enjoy. The new owner is in for a treat.
