EVERYTHING at a former Bembridge police house is in order for family living, with space to spare for relaxing and entertaining in impressive fashion.
Detached Peel House, in Steyne Road, has five bedrooms, a sociable kitchen/diner with gleaming granite worktops and luxuriously appointed bath and shower rooms.
But that is only half the story, as the glorious back gardens include a heated swimming pool, extensive seating areas, which get the sun all day and are perfect for outside dining and even a bar with electrics.
When climbers, architectural shrubs and plants in beds and borders are in full leaf and flower, they create a delightful Mediterranean atmosphere, as well as providing screening and a feeling you are in the countryside.
However, Peel House is only a short walk from beaches and village centre shops and amenities.
The owners of around a decade have found it fantastic for a family and as a party house, since they added a big, double-storey rear and side extension and modernised and refurbished it to a high standard.
Their children have loved the 30ft by 15ft swimming pool, surrounded by decking they installed and which has just had a new pump.
At the front is a lawned garden with shrubs and flowers in beds and a wide gravel driveway, providing ample parking and leading to an integral garage with an electric door, power and lighting.
Rooms off the laminate-floored entrance hall include a sunny front-facing study, which could be used as a double bedroom and a pretty cloakroom with WC.
Morning sunlight shines into the large lounge through a big front window and through double doors is a conservatory, with a low wall, overlooking the attractive back garden.
A square opening leads from the lounge to the dining area, which can house a large table with ease and has rear garden access and views.
Mellow stone flooring continues into the beautiful, rear-facing kitchen, partially divided from the dining area by a black granite-topped breakfast bar.
As well as quality Elizabeth Ann units, the kitchen has an extractor canopy above space for a range cooker. There is plumbing for a dishwasher. A utility room, with side door, fitted units and a Belfast sink has plumbing for a washing machine and dryer.
The upstairs landing, with a large airing cupboard, leads to five bedrooms.
The contemporary family bathroom has stylish tiling and a white bath, separate shower cubicle, WC, bowl handbasin on a wooden stand and a tall towel radiator.
Spacious bedroom one is a lovely room, with a wide rear window, French doors to a rear balcony, with space for a small table and chairs and an ultra-stylish en-suite shower room with charcoal floor and wall tiles, a large shower cubicle with body jets, twin contemporary square basins with storage below, a WC and modern chrome towel radiator.
Two double bedrooms and the single bedroom are front-facing, while the other double bedroom has a pleasant rear garden outlook.
In addition to its large paved terrace and adjoining decking, the delightful back garden has a lawned area.
