SITUATED close to Osborne House, Glenluce teams a quiet location with sweeping views over Cowes.
Tucked away from the road, this beautiful four-bedroom bungalow has been completely renovated during the past two years by its current owners.
Glenluce was built in the late 1960s but when the original owner began clearing the land, the footings from two bungalows started in 1939, then abandoned because of the war, were discovered.
The property has since been sympathetically extended and now boasts four bedrooms, two reception rooms and two conservatories.
The sitting room is particularly lovely, with a feature wall in a rich red floral pattern, which catches the morning light, plus a brick hearth, with a highly efficient new multi-fuel log burner.
Opposite the sitting room is the westward-facing dining room and another comfortable sitting area, which is flooded with afternoon light. There is also a beautiful stained-glass serving hatch into the kitchen.
The kitchen has new units and worktops from Howdens, plus an induction hob and gorgeous French pine floorboards.
The master bedroom and main guest bedroom are both tastefully decorated with Laura Ashley wallpaper, curtains and linen and there is a stylish third double bedroom, plus a single bedroom, which is currently being used as an office.
There are two modern conservatories — one leading off the dining room, which is a perfect place to sit down and relax and a second one off of the kitchen, which is currently being used as a utility area.
Glenluce also benefits from a stylish bathroom with a panel bath, with shower fittings overhead, plus a separate shower room with a double sized shower cubicle.
There are two access hatches to the loft, which provides plenty of storage space and there are two garages outside, plus a greenhouse with a productive grapevine.
Glenluce benefits from wall and loft insulation, plus Economy 10 heating and double glazing throughout.
The property is approached via its own driveway and is surrounded by garden.
The rear garden has a large patio, with views across Cowes and grassy terraced areas, plus a pond, a fruit orchard and some raised vegetable beds.
Glenluce would be perfect for a family as it is a stone’s throw to the nearest primary school and within walking distance of East Cowes town, the Red Funnel terminal and Waitrose.
