Property of the Week (one) - Conifers, The Shute.
The living room.
PROPERTY OF THE WEEK
A village setting looking over fields where horses graze to pretty countryside and downland sets the scene for a modern home with beguiling character.
Detached Conifers is in The Shute, just down the hill from the pub and primary school in Newchurch. It was built in 2005 and has a quirky layout lending itself to family living and working from home.
Its three/four-bedroom accommodation includes a delightful lofty-ceilinged lounge, a kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room and three WCs.
However Conifers also has the adaptability more common in an older home. Along with a large first-floor landing area, ideal as study/play space, there is a useful dressing room/hobby room/office/nursery leading to a shower room off the master bedroom and a downstairs second lounge.
This is great as a play room or maybe a fourth bedroom as there is a bathroom opposite.
The property's garage has two windows, power and light and could have scope for more space.
With superb front views over a field opposite to rolling countryside, the house is close to beautiful walks and the scenic cycle track linking Newport to Sandown and both towns are within a short drive.
Off the kitchen/breakfast room is a paved area with steps up to a terrace which has more steps up the modest-sized back garden seeded with grass and with plum and fig trees and a shed.
The terrace and a decked area off the upstairs lounge both get plenty of afternoon and evening sunshine.
Fronting the garage is a paved parking area with space for several cars and a conifer in a lawned area.
The spacious laminate-floored entrance area, with potential study space beneath stairs to the first floor, leads to all downstairs rooms.
Countryside views can be seen through a front bay window in the bright second lounge/bedroom four.
Along with fitted cream units, the kitchen/breakfast room with side doors to a paved area, has space for a range cooker and table.
Matching units are fitted in the good-sized utility room with a side door and plumbing for a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.
The smart, tile-floored bathroom has a white suite, including a bath with a shower and decorative sail-style screen.
Neutral carpet features on the stairs to the first floor and flows from the spacious landing into the bedrooms and down five steps to the main lounge.
This lovely inviting room has two rear windows, side doors to a decking and the warm focal point of an open, brick fireplace flanked by shelves.
The airy master bedroom, with a front bay window framing glorious countryside and downland views, has a door and step down to dressing room/nursery/office, plus two large Velux windows.
Positioned off is a stylish, fully tiled shower room.
Good-sized bedroom two has more fine front views, while bedroom three is a smaller side-facing room.
Completing the home is a separate WC, which could have space for a shower cubicle.
