THE three great assets of a peaceful yet convenient village setting, a pleasing air of traditional elegance and bright living space you can stamp your own mark upon make the name of a handsome Bembridge home an appropriate one.
Trinity Cottage stands in a highly sought-after spot towards the end of quiet Love Lane, a short walk from the beach and village shops and amenities.
Opposite beautiful park-like gardens with lofty specimen trees, the detached house has a pretty walled front garden and secluded back gardens with a pond and paved sitting areas.
Its four-bedroom accommodation is made light and airy by lovely wooden-framed, multi-paned sash windows and its attractive old interior doors also hark back to bygone days.
Some work is needed to bring Trinity Cottage up to date but the end result would be a very special home offering a superb lifestyle, minutes from the beach and close to sailing facilities.
A carport at the side of the house could be used for boat storage, as there is parking space on a gravelled front driveway, accessed via a five-bar gate.
Shrubs, including roses, feature in beds and borders in the front garden and a lawn continues along one side to the lawned back garden, also with shrubs and plants in borders. Two paved patio areas are ideal for outdoor drinks and meals. Beyond the car port is a brick-built store, ideal for sailing gear or bikes.
Beyond a wide enclosed front porch with sash windows is a small lobby area, which is open to the dining hall and has stairs to the first floor. To the other side is the welcoming lounge with a large front window, a narrow side window looking out to tree tops and the attractive focal point of a wide brick fireplace and large, coal-effect fire.
Through a wide archway is a rear-facing living area, which could be used as a dining area or study space. Wooden French doors open from here to a conservatory, overlooking the back garden and with access to a paved patio.
In the front-facing dining hall is an arched feature incorporating glazed panels and a sliding door to the kitchen.
Fitted with a range of pale units and wooden-style worksurfaces, the kitchen overlooks the back garden and has space for a cooker and fridge freezer.
A side lobby leads to a WC and a utility room, with plumbing for a washing machine. It also has a door to the carport — handy when unloading shopping from the car.
A pleasant leafy front outlook can be enjoyed when arriving on the upstairs landing. Positioned off this is the family bathroom, with its pretty, semi-circular feature window and a white suite including a bath with disabled access.
The bathroom can also be reached from spacious bedroom one, an airy double-aspect room with wardrobes.
Also double-sized are bedroom two with an attractive front outlook and vanity handbasin and bedroom three, with a pedestal handbasin. Bedroom four is a single-sized room with a side window.
