Deceptively spacious home

When is what appears to be a bungalow, not a bungalow? When it boasts six bedrooms across two floors — as with this fine home in Sibden Road, Shanklin.

Next to the lounge is the kitchen-diner with access to theside of the house and an integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There is anarray of units and an electric double oven as well as a halogen hob.

At the end of the hall is the bathroom and also to theground floor are four double bedrooms, including the en-suite master bedroom.
