LARGE gardens adjoining fields on two sides and a lovely light and airy interior make Holmwood an enticing prospect for those seeking rural living.

The detached four-bedroom home, off Main Road, Porchfield, has delightful countryside views and although it is only around ten minutes drive from both Newport and Cowes, it seems to be a world away.

Accommodation is spacious, with the flexibility to use a downstairs bedroom as a study.

This, and the three upstairs double bedrooms, are all light double-aspect rooms, with an appealing outlook.

The en-suite shower room to the lovely master bedroom could easily be separated off and its large dressing room converted to luxurious en-suite facilities.

Extended and improved Holmwood has a wonderfully spacious open plan, triple-aspect kitchen and dining room, with garden access.

A big boon is its generous storage space, with a walk-in shelved larder off the utility room and built-in storage in soft green, tongue-and-groove style in the conservatory/garden room, bedroom four and the lounge.

Gardens extend mainly to the rear and one side with a sweeping lawn, trees, shrubs and plants, a raised decked patio in one corner, two sheds, a greenhouse and a substantial chalet, with power, which could be an office/ garden room. Trellis encloses a paved and gravelled seating area.

Gravelled side areas, one with an adjoining garage, provide plenty of parking.

Striking shrubs feature in the front garden, with a path leading to double doors to the 26ft wide double-glazed conservatory/garden room, with white walls, fitted storage, built in window seats and lovely tiled flooring.

This continues through double doors to the entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor and flows into the modern bathroom, with fully tiled walls and a white suite, with a shower and screen over a shaped bath.

Double doors link the conservatory to the lounge, warmed by a solid fuel stove and with solid wooden flooring and twin glazed doors to the fantastic kitchen/dining room.

Looking over the rear garden to countryside and with garden access, the kitchen, which is open to the dining room, has pale base units, a matching island, solid wooden worktops, a built-in electric hob, cooker and extractor and plumbing for a dishwasher.

Also with an attractive rear outlook, the good-sized, tile-floored utility room has plumbing for a washing machine.

Pine flooring enhances bedroom one, with countryside views and a seat built into a side window. As well as its en-suite shower room, it has a 13ft by 9ft dressing room, with rural views.

Bedroom two, with wooden flooring, has pleasant front and side views.

Bedroom three has a side window and a front outlook across the lane, leading to a field, where ponies graze.
