WHAT you see is definitely not what you get at a tucked-away home near Fishbourne’s ferry terminal — a deceptive frontage hides a huge amount of appealing space.

Visible from quiet The Poplars road are detached number 3’s double garage and adjoining single garage.

Beyond, however is a delightful five/six-bedroom home with some unusually shaped rooms and ceiling angles, and a lovely flowing layout orientated mostly towards the sunny back garden with a swimming pool and paved surround.

It is welcoming, beautifully presented, great for entertaining and practical too.

There is more to discover because there is an attached, but totally separate, two-bedroom bungalow annexe. This has its own secluded, good-sized side and rear gardens.

This superb package is ideal for those with an elderly relative and convenient for a quick hop over to the mainland as well as for amenities in Ryde and Newport.

Lovely well-kept grounds with feature shrubs and trees surround the whole property with the annexe having a single garage and a gate to a pathway through lawned gardens.

The spacious annexe comprises a utility room with WC, two bedrooms, a lounge, bathroom with a shower and bath, fitted kitchen and a full-width rear conservatory.

Double doors open to the tile-floored porch in the main house leading to the hallway. A high sloping ceiling creates a sense of space in the inviting lounge with a side bay window, a gas fire and sliding door with side panel to the double glazed rear conservatory/sun room.

This overlooks the pool area and has a corner pond with tinkling water feature.

Also radiating off the conservatory/

sun room, and with a patio doors to it, is the dining room, breakfast room and superb snug/TV room, with access to the rear paved terrace.

A half-height wall divides the breakfast room from the kitchen with fitted white units, a built-in eye-level electric double oven and ceramic hob, plumbing for a washing machine and a larder.

In the spacious utility room, with matching units, is a stable door to the outside, plumbing for a washing machine, a door to the double garage and a WC off.

Also downstairs is a side-facing study and a big bedroom with built-in wardrobes, access to a side patio and a tiled en-suite wet room with shower.

Pristine pale carpet continues up the stairs to a landing and into four attractive bedrooms. Airy bedroom one looks over the back garden and pool and has walk-in wardrobes and a superb en-suite bathroom with a shower and a WC off.

Also upstairs is a separate WC and a smart fully tiled bathroom including a shower.

Beyond the pool in the secluded back garden are lawned and decked areas and a path to a large lawned area with a shed housing pool equipment.
