Having it all isn’t always possible but The Walnut Tree, located in Cockleton Lane, Gurnard, makes sure it is.

As you approach the property at the end of a private lane, you are immediately treated to the far-reaching countryside views and a wonderful outlook over Gurnard Bay and The Solent.

The interior of this home is not a poor relation of the outside — the quality of finish is apparent, thanks to the current owners extending and upgrading the accommodation.

Constructed in the 1980s from reclaimed bricks, this home has a characterful facade and has been perfectly positioned within the plot to take advantage of the breathtaking views from all its principal rooms.

The generous gardens wrap around the home, offering both privacy and extensive parking within its gravelled driveway.

The welcoming entrance hall is accessed at the side of the property and the impressive sea view can be seen right away.

The large kitchen /breakfast room measures 20ft in length and is perfect for family living.

There is ample space for a dining table and an extensive range of built-in units, granite worktops and integral appliances.

Leading off this room is a utility room, a separate cloakroom and a large conservatory.

The conservatory really adds to the wow factor of this home and is a wonderful spot to relax and take in the fine mix of country and sea views, with dual-aspect doors to encourage a good flow of fresh air on a summer’s day.

The spacious lounge is again dual aspect, with a large wood burner fitted in the fireplace, ready for cosy winter evenings.

A formal dining room is accessed via glazed double doors and will be invaluable for family gatherings and big celebrations.

The ground floor accommodation features two of the double bedrooms, including the master suite, with sliding doors framing the lovely views and giving the occupants access to a private patio area to enjoy a morning coffee.

The master bedroom has its own en-suite shower room, while the adjacent bedroom is served by the beautiful family bathroom, with its raised claw-foot bath and separate shower cubicle.

To the first floor there are two further double bedrooms, which both benefit from under-eaves storage and are served by a modern shower room, with a nautical porthole window for added character.

Outside, the gardens sitting either side of the home are mainly laid to lawn, with inset beds and mature shrubs, plus a large patio area for alfresco dining.

There is parking on the gated driveway, as well as a detached workshop/garage.
