It has easy care wood-laminate flooring, a feature fireplace and double-glazed, sliding doors to the conservatory, with fully fitted roof and vertical blinds. This gives you access to the decking area and attractive rear garden and will be a bonus on warm days, when you can blend indoor and outdoor living.

The light and airy kitchen comprises of a range of timeless cream-coloured cupboards, shelving and drawer units, with contrasting dark worksurfaces over. There is an integral electric double oven, four-ring gas hob and extractor hood.

A door leads from the kitchen directly to the garage, so there would be easy access to a further freezer or extra drinks fridge out there if you were entertaining.

A downstairs shower room, with WC, completes the accommodation on this level.

Upstairs, there are four well-proportioned bedrooms, three of which are doubles.

You can enjoy some far-reaching sea views over The Solent from the rear-facing rooms, while the master bedroom overlooks the front and is a generous 15ft by 12ft, with full-width built-in wardrobes across one wall.
