This substantial 1950s home, in Buckingham Road, Ryde, is an absolute gem inside and out.

Number 9 impresses with its newly fitted bathroom, stylish kitchen, three large bedrooms and sea views, and then puts a cherry on top of the lot with a fabulous split-level garden.

Cast your mind back to the heatwave during the summer and you will appreciate the charms of the large decked area with balustrade surround — the perfect spot for sun worshippers, cocktails or relaxed alfresco dining.

From here there are steps down to an enclosed private lawn, with a raised fishpond, which has a working waterfall feature.

There is also a large workshop, plus the under deck area and a wood store.

Off-road parking is found at the front of the semi-detached property and it also comes with a garage, which is accessed via Spencer Road.

Located in the heart of Ryde, this family home is within minutes of the seafront, beautiful beaches, mainland ferry links and the town centre.

The welcoming porch and hallway leads to an elegant 25ft sitting/dining room, with dual-aspect windows and French doors out to the decked area. At this time of year, it’s the wood burner that creates a lovely focal point in this spacious room.

The contemporary kitchen is a delight for keen cooks, with an integral double oven and hob and a concealed tall fridge/freezer.

There’s also the added luxury of tiled flooring with underfloor heating.

A separate utility area is adjacent to the kitchen, which houses the Vaillant boiler installed just a year ago.

Upstairs continues the spacious theme, with three good-size double bedrooms.

Fans of sea views will want to nab bedroom one — a bright and airy carpeted room, with a built-in wardrobe and stunning views over The Solent.

The family bathroom could be the jewel in the crown of the upstairs accommodation. Fitted last year, it comprises a very stylish modern suite, including a P-shaped bath with rain shower over and eye-catching wall tiles.
