WORDS alone cannot describe Chase House — it must be seen to be appreciated.
This enchanting house, in Pine Tree Close, was designed and built by the present owners in 2000 and they believed it was their "forever" home.
They will be sorry to leave but their love of keeping livestock has led them to have a go at living on a farm.
Chase House is situated within spacious, fully-enclosed grounds and has an abundance of glass front and back to ensure it remains bright indoors on the gloomiest of days.
The house was designed to be a really flexible home, centred around a communal day area but with plenty of private zones for growing children or fraught adults to retreat to.
Visitors will be amazed by the stunning 31ft kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of this fantastic home: a vaulted ceiling, bi-fold doors and large island ensures there is a real wow factor.
Located off the kitchen/breakfast room, there is a large sitting room, with fabulous garden views and there is another separate reception room/study, downstairs cloakroom, utility room and sunny conservatory.
The studio annexe has its own entrance so it can be used as part of the main house or a separate unit and it has a large bedroom, kitchen area and bathroom, perfect for elderly relatives or a nanny.
On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms — two of which are en-suite — and the family bathroom.
The spacious master bedroom is particularly desirable and has built-in wardrobes and a large balcony, with breathtaking views of The Solent and plenty of space to sit out and enjoy your coffee in the morning.
The second floor has sea views and its own shower room and is currently being used as a palatial home office but has been used as two large bedrooms in the past.
For anyone considering working from home, Chase House has wiring already in place for a number of different technological systems, while its proximity to Cowes ferry links makes it a perfect choice for those who commute.
Outside, there is a gravel driveway with parking for several cars and a double garage, with a boarded space above, which could make a great teenagers’ den.
The spacious garden is completely enclosed by hedging and is extremely private for an more urban-style setting.
It has lawned areas, plus a small woodland, a pond with decking and a gazebo, which is perfect for sitting in and watching the sun go down on a summer’s day.
