A DECADE old and still with smart, box-fresh looks, a home tucked away in a quiet spot next to a leafy Sandown park offers luxurious living with space aplenty.

Standing on a corner plot at prestigious Elmbank Gardens and with a good-sized garden backing onto Los Altos Park is Woodside, a roomy and well-designed house exuding quality.

The detached home is within a small cul-de-sac of similar properties and has large, light rooms including five bedrooms — two of them with well-appointed en-suite facilities.

Attractive views over Woodside’s delightful back gardens to the park can be seen from two bedrooms and accommodation also includes a well fitted out kitchen with space for a breakfast table, a 23ft-long lounge with access to a rear patio, a separate dining room and utility room.

Within easy reach of Sandown’s railway link to Ryde and its cross-Solent services, the house is also a short walk to the town centre and sandy beaches.

A small open-plan garden fronts the home, which also has a driveway for two cars, and a double garage with remote-control door, power, light and doors to the back garden and entrance hall.

The hall, reached from a covered porch, is a spacious area with a cupboard beneath stairs to the first floor.

This leads to the comfortable and inviting lounge, which has a sliding door to the back garden, and windows to each side of an attractive marble surround to a fireplace, housing a coal-effect flame gas fire.

Double doors with glazed panels open from the hall to the front-facing dining room, an appealing setting for family meals and entertaining.

Also with a front outlook is a kitchen/breakfast room with all you need to create a masterpiece. Along with a four-burner gas hob there is an eye-level electric oven and grill, and an integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Pale ceramic floor tiles contrast with dark splashback tiles.

There are more units in the tile-floored utility room off the kitchen, which has plumbing for a washing machine and access to the back garden.

The downstairs cloakroom with partly tiled walls houses a white suite.

Upstairs, a spacious galleried landing has access to a partly-boarded and insulated loft, and a study area.

Built-in wardrobes feature in the super master bedroom, a large front and rear-facing room with the luxury of a whirlpool bath with shower over, in its en-suite bathroom.

Bedroom two, with a pleasant park outlook, also has an excellent en suite.

A similar view of the park can be seen from bedroom five and the other two bedroom are front-facing.

Fully tiled complement an ivory-coloured suite in the family bathroom.

Hedges and fencing enclose the back garden and provide lots of privacy. The well-maintained gardens include lawns, established shrubs, trees, flowers in borders, a patio and timber shed.
