WITH immaculate interior, sunny garden and spacious accommodation, Bay Trees is a delightful home, offering a comfortable lifestyle in a desirable location.

It has the added attraction of a suite of rooms downstairs, which has served as a granny flat in the past and could easily be converted back into a self-contained annexe with its own front door.

The house was built about 30 years ago in Mitten Road, Bembridge, and the current owners have upgraded it throughout, bringing the property up to show-home standard. There are new carpets and the decor is pristine. Muted, neutral colours have been used throughout, with patterned wallpaper on accent walls. Ceilings have been renewed, doors replaced and floors insulated.

Entrance to Bay Trees is via a storm porch over the front door. The door opens into an entrance hall, which leads to an L-shaped living area, made up of a sitting room connected to a dining room by an archway.

The dining room is 12ft by 9ft and has an alcove with a built-in bookcase.

Also off the sitting room, through French doors, is a large conservatory. This has dwarf walls and uPVC windows, plus an angled roof fitted with electric blinds. It has central heating and air conditioning.

The kitchen, 23ft by 9ft, has solid beech cabinets, granite-effect worktops and durable Karndean flooring. There is a fitted, electric double oven and a gas hob. One end of the kitchen has glazed wall units and a breakfast bar overlooking the garden. Windows to the front, side and back flood the kitchen with natural light.

There is a downstairs cloakroom with a built-in cupboard.

An archway from the sitting room leads to the rooms, which have been used as an annexe. There is a 14ft by 10ft room, currently used as the fourth bedroom, plus a smaller room. There is also a galley-style kitchen and a shower room.

An attractive staircase leads from the entrance hall to the first-floor landing. The main bedroom is 14ft by 11ft, with a suite of fitted furniture, including wardrobes, bedside units and drawers. It has a large en-suite bathroom, with corner bath, shower cubicle, WC, bidet and handbasin.

The second bedroom is 12ft by 12ft, and also has an en-suite shower room.

The third bedroom is 11ft by 10ft, with a dressing-room-cum-storeroom.

The family bathroom has a bath with over-bath shower, WC and washbasin.

The house has plentiful storage, including a large, panelled loft space above the annexe and cupboards under the eaves.

The outdoor areas are as well looked after as the inside of the house. At the front, there are electric gates and a gravelled front driveway, with parking for several cars. The south-facing back garden has a patio enclosed by low walls and a large lawn, bordered by a beautiful bay hedge. There is a log cabin, brick shed and a wooden playhouse.
