DISCOVER Bay Tree Cottage, in Sandy Way on the outskirts of Shorwell, and you will be dazzled by fabulous countryside and coastal views.

This home is immaculate and has more than enough space for a family.
There is a village schools in nearby Brighstone and Newport is just ten minutes’ drive away.
Freshwater can be reached in about 20 minutes.
Bay Tree Cottage was built around ten years ago and has beautiful architectural features, such as solid walnut flooring throughout the house, apart from the kitchen area, where the floor is slate.
As a modern house, it has the latest energy-efficient technology, including solar panels to heat water and excellent insulation.
During the cold months, a multi-fuel stove will produce plenty of heat.
The layout of the house makes the most of the space. For example, a huge storage area, accessed by a full-height door, has been built under the stairs — no risk of bumping your head.
Sophisticated neutral colours have been chosen for the decor throughout the house, enhancing the bright and airy rooms.
Entry to the house is through a covered porch into the hallway, where the under-stairs cupboard is found.
The ground floor contains the lounge and kitchen/diner, which both stretch the full depth of the house.
There is also a cloakroom and utility room on this level.
The focal point of the lounge is a brick fireplace, which contains the multi-fuel stove.
The kitchen is the heart of the house, and links to an inviting family dining area. Appliances include a double range cooker and integrated dishwasher.
The kitchen units are white, with brushed-steel handles. The worktops are wood and the splashbacks have high-gloss, white, brick-style tiles.
Double doors open from the kitchen to the garden, providing a free-flowing link to the surrounding countryside.
Upstairs, a sky light allows light to flood the stairwell.
The first floor has four double bedrooms, all with plentiful built-in wardrobes, plus the family bathroom.
The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room.
There is a loft hatch, with fitted ladder, in the master bedroom.
Outside is a small cottage garden at the front, plus paved parking area.
At the side of the house, there is more parking and around the back there is a lovely garden with magnificent views. There is a paved terrace for eating outdoors.
A shed provides storage for garden tools.
