CHARACTER, koi carp and a welcoming feel too are part of the enticing deal at a lovely Wootton home, will lots of superb surprises in store.
Hidden from busy Lushington Hill by shrubs and ornamental trees and with glorious back gardens attracting wildlife, detached Newlands is a flexible three/four-bedroom bungalow, which is in a more peaceful little world than you might expect.
The owners have made it into a wonderful home, with extensive works two years ago, including extending to the rear to provide an inviting lounge, a home office and a well appointed kitchen/diner.
A stylish refitted bathroom, new central heating system and double glazed windows have been among other improvements.
Finishing touches include old stripped pine Gothic-style doors in the lounge, matched by bespoke glazed doors linking this room to bedroom four/dining room/second lounge.
Close to ferry links and a short drive from Newport, Newlands is well placed for commuters and those who make frequent trips to the mainland.
The good-sized back garden, which is south-facing and attracts squirrels and birds, has a raised pergola covered patio. An attractive koi and fish stocked pond, with a water feature, is fringed by greenery and there is a lawn, shrubs, fruit trees and a shed.
Raised veg beds stretch along one side to a patio/hot tub area beyond a single garage, with adjoining carport.
The long front driveway leads to parking space for several cars.
A long enclosed entrance porch, with tiled flooring and a rear door, is ideal for coats and boots.
Handsome engineered oak flooring features in the L-shaped hallway beyond and in the lovely lounge and adjoining home office.
The lounge is reached via striking reclaimed double doors from the kitchen/diner and has a pretty garden view through big sliding doors to the patio and a corner multi-fuel stove on a raised brick hearth.
A matching Gothic-style reclaimed door leads to the office/bedroom five overlooking the back garden and with a shelved store room off.
The kitchen has a long island, classic oak Shaker-style units and extensive dark worktops, the 25ft kitchen/diner has space for a range cooker and appliances. Large rear patio doors in the dining area look onto the pond and garden.
An internal stained glass window and a brick fireplace, with flame gas fire, feature in side-aspect bedroom four, which is large enough to be used as a dining room or lounge if required.
Across the hallway is the bathroom, with a white suite, including a shaped bath with shower over and walls, with full-height tiles.
Two bedrooms are front-facing, while the other has a side window.
