This handsome detached home in Shanklin is in one of the town’s most sought-after areas, close to the Old Village and the Big Mead.
The first property along a quiet road in one of Shanklin’s most desirable areas is the place to look if you want a comfortable, easy-to-look-after space close to lovely walks yet not far from town.
With the picturesque Old Village and expansive Big Mead on the doorstep and a cricket club virtually opposite, 8 Westcombe Park, off Westhill Road comes up trumps for location.
The detached house — one of just eight in a small development which took shape around a decade ago — has well-looked-after four-bedroom accommodation with some lovely front views to beautiful undulating wooded countryside.
Although the exterior with decorative timberwork gives number 8 a decidedly traditional look the interior is most definitely modern.
Here, a living room, leading to a dining room provides sociable space, a stylish contemporary kitchen installed in recent years comes well appointed, the master bedroom has a smart en-suite shower room and the family bathroom is similarly attractive.
Outside amenities also make for an easy life. At the front is a small patch of lawn with a paved driveway, with enough room for two or three cars and a detached single garage with power, light and an up-and-over door.
On each side is a gated path to the enclosed back garden — a modest-sized area with a paved terrace off the dining room and lawn beyond.
A gentle ramp brings you to the front door opening into the entrance hall. Neutral decor here with plain cream walls, matching carpet and white woodwork continues in all but the kitchen and bathroom facilities.
On the left, is the carpeted cloakroom, with a white suite, while a door on the right leads to the lounge.
This is a generous 19ft-long room with a front square bay window and a wide opening to the dining room, which has double doors to the back garden — ideal when entertaining or dining outside
Also reached via the hallway, the kitchen looks onto the garden and has a door to a side pathway.
Gorgeous seamless stone-effect, Corian-style worksurfaces here extend to form upstands and incorporate a rectangular sink. They tone attractively with sleek, pale, glossy units and there is a Neff gas hob, extractor and double oven, plus an integrated fridge freezer and Bosch dishwasher.
A side window lights the upstairs landing leading to the bedrooms and family bathroom, fully tiled in white with a horizontal band of monochrome tiles and a modern white suite with a vanity handbasin, WC and a bath with a shower and screen over.
Lovely views to the downs can be seen from bedroom one with appealing white fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room fully tiled in similar style to the bathroom.
Bedroom three also has a fine front outlook, while the other bedrooms are rear facing.
