Those looking for character and comfort will find them in equal measure at Bartletts Farmhouse, in Newchurch village.

The wraparound garden means it is set back from the road and even from the kerbside this picture-postcard property is a charmer. The interior doesn't disappoint as it is beautifully presented throughout, retaining plenty of period features, with the advantage of modern fixtures and fittings in a cottage style.

Set within the rural village of Newchurch amid rolling countryside, Bartletts Farmhouse is within walking distance of the village amenities, including the popular pub The Pointers, post office, church and primary school. There are plenty of footpaths within the surrounding area, including the Sandown to Cowes cycle track, which makes Bartletts Farmhouse the perfect property for country lovers, cycling enthusiasts and dog walkers.

It comes with two large parking spaces and there are very spacious living areas, which are surprisingly generous considering the cute, cottagey appearance. A sociable kitchen/breakfast room and huge lounge/diner are flanked by an extra reception room, which is ideal for office space or use as a games/hobby room or music room.

Despite the lounge being a huge 33ft long, cosy winter nights in are promised by the large feature log burner, which kicks out plenty of heat.

The attractive kitchen and diner runs the whole width of the rear elevation and features bespoke, handmade kitchen units as well as two built-in larder style cupboards. This is a lovely room for entertaining and gets plenty of light through dual aspect windows and the French doors, which lead to the pretty patio.

Period features are in abundance, including beamed ceilings in the hallway and lounge. To complete the downstairs accommodation you have a WC.

Upstairs are three immaculately presented double bedrooms, enjoying some of those breathtaking country views.

There is a large family bathroom, with bath as well as a shower cubicle, plus a further WC and a separate shower room too. Yet another surprise is the spacious study, which measures approximately 16ft by 8ft.
