Branksome, in Hilton Road, Gurnard.
HAVING fallen in love with a cottage enjoying fabulous sea views from its great Gurnard location a couple went on to transform it into a superb home for their family.
Hidden away at the end of private Hilton Road, where it meets Cockleton Lane, is Branksome, a detached property tastefully renovated by its owners to provide attractive four-bedroom accommodation.
Desirable Gurnard is a popular choice for families wanting to be part of a friendly community close to the sea and Branksome is within walking distance of local shops, the seafront, shore and sailing club.
From the appealing interior of the delightful home are countryside vistas to admire as well as glorious far-reaching views across the sea to the mainland.
Gurnard’s spectacular sunsets are famous and Branksome’s wonderful outlook is enhanced by vivid hues at the end of the day.
Another delight is the secluded, enclosed front garden, a lawned area with colourful plants and mature shrubs in borders.
A paved patio area here is an inviting spot for outdoor meals and drinks.
Plenty of parking space for around four cars is provided by a gravelled driveway, an integral garage and a car port with storage space for refuse and logs.
Leading to the front garden and providing a charming introduction to the property is a gated archway of greenery.
The entrance porch with a casement window leads to the entrance hallway with a cupboard beneath stairs leading up to the first floor.
Measuring a generous 23ft by 13ft is the lounge created by opening up two reception rooms and with some lovely views of The Solent to savour. Partly dividing these areas is the attractive original exposed brick chimney housing a log-burning stove.
Windows to three sides let in natural light and patio doors can be opened to allow guests to spill out onto the front terrace when entertaining.
Bespoke wall and floor units are fitted in the double-aspect 18ft-long kitchen/breakfast room which has worksurfaces, an electric cooker, hob with extractor over, a fridge, partly tiled walls and quarry tile flooring. More attractive storage is provided by bespoke wall and floor cupboards in the utility room which includes a freezer and has plumbing for a washing machine, quarry tile flooring and a door leading to the car port and back garden.
Reached from the dining area of the kitchen/diner is a study with quarry tile flooring and a double-aspect garden outlook.
Completing the downstairs is a cloakroom/WC.
Off the upstairs landing with a double-sized airing cupboard and access to loft space are four bedrooms and a bathroom with partly-tiled walls and a white suite, including a bath with shower over and a vanity handbasin.
There are fantastic views of The Solent to wake up to from double-aspect bedroom one, which has a built-in wardrobe and cupboards and an en-suite shower room.
Also with windows to two sides is bedroom two, which — in common with bedroom three — has a Victorian fireplace as a focal point.
Bedroom four is a single-sized room with a built-in wardrobe and shelves.
