The Mall, Brading, Isle of Wight, PO36 0BT, PO36 0BT


Key features:



This substantial light and airy detached house is situated in a hillside conservation area in the historic town of Brading. Large windows on all 3 floors offer an unhindered view of one of the Isle of Wights most beautiful natural scenery, including Brading Haven (a RSPB reserve), rolling hills with grazing cattle and the sea. Berardinz was the name of the manor house in Brading in the Doomsday book. Formerly a school house, the property has undergone a complete transformation over the years to create a modern and spacious living area that fully benefits from the views. Because of its hillside position and low-lying neighbouring houses, sunlight enters the house and the large garden throughout the day. In 2017 the lower ground floor was upgraded to a high specification and a new remote-controlled boiler installed for the house, all work guaranteed and carried out by reputable local firms. The house is currently configured with 5 bedrooms, 4 WCs, 3 bathrooms and 4 reception rooms. One of the reception rooms was previously divided into 2 bedrooms, which can easily be done again.Location The property is a few minutes from numerous walks in woodland and open landscape, and interesting places such as the Roman Villa, vineyard, picturesque town centre, 2 good restaurants and Nunwell House, where Charles I resided before being returned to Carisbrooke Castle. A lovely walk through RSPB fields or a short drive takes you to a spectacular sandy beach at Yaverland. Alternatively bridle or footpaths will take you to other beautiful sandy beaches at St Helens or Bembridge. Waitrose is available for home delivery and a large Tesco Extra store is five minute drive away. There is a popular primary school a short walk from the house and 2 public schools on the island. Unusually for a small town on the island, Brading has a train station, which has enabled the current owners to commute to their jobs in London without the need of a car. Waterloo Station is only about 2.5 hours from Berardinz, including the short stroll to Brading station."In the owners words" "We had been looking to buy a property on the Isle of Wight for a couple of years and having decided only to move if we found the right house and location. After having seen almost thirty houses and spent too many nights researching the dream house, we found ourselves in the lounge of Berardinz for the first time and when resting our eyes on the out of this world views of Culver Down and the sea, we both said "this is the one." We viewed it in February (yes, a rainy day!), completed the sale in June, then married in the August which enabled us to move in on our wedding day. The first years in the house we were car free and commuted to London to work. Brading boasts a 12th century village church that hosts a number of activities for the community where we christened our three children, and one of us took flower arranging classes! Within a ten minute walk, we have restaurants, primary school, post office, a small shop, a play park and a popular GP surgery.cont... If a facility isn't actually in the village, it is nearby. Within a five minute drive or bus, you have a large swimming pool and gym, dentist, Roman Villa, vineyard and the Isle of Wight Zoo. Sometimes in the evening we could hear the lions roar faintly in the distance. Ten minutes on the train and you are in Shanklin or Ryde with plenty shops and other amenities. We have had an abundance of happy memories from living in this house including many happy family gatherings and friends staying over that was made easy with the large size and layout of the house. It is with heavy hearts that we have had to move because our jobs took us to Devon. We hope the new owners will enjoy the property as much as we, and the family before us did (who were lucky enough to have had over 20 years in Berardinz)".Entrance Hall A tiled entrance with doors to:Study12' 4'' x 6' 7'' (3.77m x 2.03m) With wall mounted gas boiler and built in storage cupboards.
