The story at Glenthorne is one of flexibility and fabulous views, which are dominated by Bembridge Down and pan around from Bembridge Harbour across marshes and beautiful countryside to Sandown Bay.
Should you choose to start a new chapter at the semi-detached home, high up on The Mall at Brading, this panorama will be the backdrop to your home, where you have three/four bedroom space.
This is set out over three floors, with two of the three top-floor bedrooms having a far-reaching rear outlook to the sea.
On the floor below is the sitting room — another room with a view, where you can wander on to a balcony and enjoy the vista centred on Bembridge Down.
Creating adaptability on this level is a bedroom, which could be a study.
A family room and a dining room are both suitable for other uses.
More spacious than it appears, Glenthorne is a period property, with features including an elegant staircase, picture rails and high ceilings.
The owners love its location, with both Ryde and Newport a short drive away, as well as its village feel and having lovely walks — up on the downs and across the marshes — close by.
Peaceful, lawned back gardens, well enclosed by shrubs, have steps up to the wide decked balcony, while at the front is a small garden with a feature pebbled area.
Steps lead down from a side area, with a shed to an extensive workshop/lean-to with a WC leading off it, space for appliances, a Belfast sink, a workbench and a door to the back garden.
The enclosed front porch leads to the spacious entrance hall, with an elegant staircase and further stairs to the lowest floor.
A brick fireplace features in the front-facing study/bedroom four, which is the first room you come to.
At the end of the hall is the sitting room, which has a period-style fireplace surround to a gas-flame fire. There are views to Bembridge Down and Sandown Bay through sliding doors to the balcony.
The lower ground floor kitchen has pale wooden Shaker-style units, contrasting dark work surfaces, a shelved pantry, an extractor above space for a large range cooker, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a fridge-freezer and access to the workshop/lean to.
In the 19ft-long family room, with its back garden outlook, is a brick open fireplace with the dining room opposite lit by a front light well.
Bright first-floor bedroom one has views sweeping around from the sea off Bembridge to Sandown Bay. Its super en-suite bathroom has attractive wall and floor tiles and a white suite including a bath and separate shower cubicle.
Bedroom two also has rear views while bedroom three is front-facing.
The family bathroom houses a white suite.
