WONDERFUL wide views across a beautiful valley to the downs are the accompaniment to the rural lifestyle offered at a flexible bungalow near Ventnor, where horses as well as humans will feel at home.
Looking across Rew Valley to Stenbury and Appuldurcombe downs is detached Homelands, with spacious light and airy accommodation that can be used as one big residence or two comfortable units.
The property has a two-acre plot, including extensive gardens and a paddock as well as a stable block with two boxes, barn-style storage and a concrete forecourt, with its own access from Clarence Road.
If needed, more paddock space can be created by turning a large terraced garden back to its former use.
The bungalow can be arranged as a two-bedroom home with a self-contained one-bedroom annexe or as a three-bedroom home, with two reception areas and superb conservatory.
Standing high above the road, Homeland is set well back by a large lawned front garden on two levels and with a greenhouse.
A driveway sweeps up to a detached garage with an up-and-over door and there is plenty of parking space.
In the main hallway is space for appliances and a fitted dresser matching the white units and wooden-style worksurfaces in the adjoining kitchen, reached via an archway. It has a big rear window, a wide range of units, an extractor hood and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher.
It is open to the lounge/diner, which stretches 23ft along the front of the bungalow and has unobstructed views across the valley, to Appuldurcombe House and countryside. Imposing focal point is a stone chimney breast and open fireplace.
An L-shaped hallway off has study space and an airing cupboard.
Positioned off is a recently fitted out shower room, with glossy marble-tiled flooring and matching splashback and shower cubicle tiling and a contemporary white suite, including twin rectangular basins.
Next door is a separate WC with a contemporary wall hung hand basin.
Built-in wardrobes feature in the bright double bedrooms. Bedroom one has stunning valley views while bedroom two has large windows to the rear and side.
The potential annexe space is set off an L-shaped hallway off the main hallway and has stripped pine flooring continuing into the 22ft-long family room, with stone surround to a woodburning stove, a kitchenette and two sets of patio doors to a raised deck with commanding views.
More lovely views can be admired from the adjoining PVCu double-glazed conservatory with garden access.
Northerly views towards Appuldurcombe House and beyond can be seen from bedroom three with pine flooring and an en-suite bathroom with a shower and screen over the bath.
