TIME will tell is an apt saying for a tucked-away Wootton home in secluded landscaped gardens of around an acre-and-a-half, with glorious far-reaching views over pretty wooded countryside to distant downs.
In the past few years, 19th century Oakfield Farm, in quiet Packsfield Lane, and topped by a tower with a working clock, has been brought up to date in style while retaining a sense of its origins.
Arranged around a sunny gravelled courtyard, the attractive home was once part of the Chatsfield Clarke Oakfield Estate and has been transformed by the owners into a wonderful four/five -bedroom property with classy modern farmhouse-style looks.
Extensive works include new wiring, plumbing, heating and double-glazed windows and rearranging the layout to maximise the outlook and provide plenty of access to the courtyard.
Quality abounds in a lovely new kitchen/breakfast room and luxurious, contemporary bathroom facilities.
Creating a warm feel is neutral carpeting and the bath and shower rooms are fully tiled, with white suites.
The front door incorporates a stained glass panel, with oak leaves and acorns, and oak features include the staircase, internal oak doors, flooring in the entrance hall and units in the kitchen.
Most rooms have super views towards Havenstreet and Bembridge Down and this panorama can be enjoyed from a curved edged brick paved terrace, running over 70ft along one side.
It overlooks sweeping lawns, with inset beds, shrubs along the brick wall boundary and a shady wooded area.
The immaculately kept gardens have space for a tennis court or swimming pool and include a range of outbuildings.
A double garage is reached via a gated driveway through extensive lawns.
Off the wide entrance hall and ideal for guests or as annexe space, is a smart sitting room and double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
Doors and windows to the long terrace and courtyard let plenty of light into the spacious sitting/dining room with two old feature ceiling beams and a woodburning stove in a brick fireplace with oak surround.
Oak units, an island and granite work surfaces feature in the kitchen/breakfast room, with access to the terrace.
There is a built-in halogen hob, double oven, wine cooler, integerated dishwasher, fridge and freezer.
The utility area has plumbing for a washing machine and a cloakroom.
Next to a study/bedroom five is a very spacious games room with patio doors to the garden.
Upstairs is a stylish, contemporary shower room, a double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, a smaller bedroom overlooking the front courtyard and spacious bedroom one with two walk-in wardrobes, far-reaching countryside views and a fabulous en-suite bathroom.
This large room houses a huge Jacuzzi bath with mood lighting, twin handbasins set into a granite top with cupboards under and a WC.
