If YOU’RE dreaming of a new home in time for Christmas, this chain-free option could be the answer.

The Gables, in an elevated position at the top of Quarr Hill, is a stunning four-bedroom detached home and, with the potential to get things moving straightaway, your Christmas dreams could just come true.

Location wise, this home will have equal appeal to townies and country lovers alike.

Ryde town is just a few minutes drive, with its array of shops, bars and restaurants, frequent transport links to the mainland and glorious sandy beaches.

For country-philes there are a choice of coastal and rural walks on your doorstep, plus a large plot to relax in at home, where you will find a secluded and versatile rear garden.

As well as a good amount of lawn, there is also a patio area with a wraparound section to the side, where there is a greenhouse, large shed and a separate clothes drying area.

Ample parking for multiple cars is at the front of the house.

Once inside, the well-presented property reveals well-proportioned rooms and ample storage space throughout.

Bathroom facilities can be found on both floors and there is one downstairs bedroom — ideal for guests or elderly family members.

The combined living and dining room is a generous size, measuring approximately 25ft by 13ft.

There is a feature fireplace and double doors to the conservatory.

This is a stunning addition to the home, and has been built to a high standard and finished with oak flooring.

A conservatory is often the ideal space for a large dining table but The Gables has already accounted for that in the open-plan lounge, so here you can effectively add a second living area to the property.

There is ample room for a suite of furniture and this makes it ideal for relaxing with the paper, entertaining your friends or watching garden birds.

On summer days, the double doors can be opened wide onto the attractive rear garden.

The kitchen also overlooks the garden and comes with the bonus of integrated appliances, including a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, double oven and four hob gas burner.

There is a separate utility room for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Upstairs, the extensive master bedroom measures approximately 19ft by 13ft and offers a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite with bath, hand basin and WC. A Velux window in the bedroom lets in extra light and there are exposed beams for a touch of character.

Bedrooms two and three are further good-size doubles and are served by the large family bathroom, with a corner bath.
