Even the fussiest of house hunters will be hard-pressed to find fault with Mincarlo.

This substantial detached family home, in the village of Newchurch, is pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on every face in the family.

First of all, there are five double bedrooms, so there won’t be any fighting about who gets what.

Next on the list of nice surprises is the heated swimming pool and summerhouse.

In this peaceful part of the Island, every summer could feel like a holiday, even when you’re at home.

As you might expect in this highly sought-after rural location, the countryside views are absolutely stunning — and you can enjoy them from the luxury of the first-floor terrace, accessed via the master bedroom.

Gardeners will appreciate the large front gardens, which feature herbaceous beds and borders, plus a wealth of mature trees and ornamental shrubs.

The rear and side gardens are mainly laid to lawn with hedging and trees.

Mincarlo has been extended over the years to include a spacious detached double garage with electric doors and a handy boarded storage area.

What might further raise your eyebrows in appreciation is the fact this quiet country lane location is only a few minutes from some superb amenities.

We’re talking supermarkets, dining pubs, garden centres, a wonderful health centre, the local primary school and The Garlic Farm, with its award-winning restaurant.

On top of all this, the Sandown to Newport cycle track is easily accessible, allowing you to get out and explore some of the Island’s most beautiful countryside.

Shanklin and Sandown beaches are also only a short drive.

Inside Mincarlo, the very well-presented accommodation includes a huge open-plan living room with beams to the ceiling and a large log burner for a cosy ambience.

The living space also includes a dining area and TV/snug area.

In all three sections of this open-plan space there are sliding doors to the garden, which open on to a paved terrace.

The kitchen is a generous 16ft by 11ft and is a light and airy room, with a breakfast bar making the perfect perch during busy mornings or when you have friends over for coffee.

Two of the five bedrooms are on the ground floor (one is currently set-up as a study).

This gives the potential to create a self-contained annexe on the ground floor, with one of the bedrooms already adjacent to a shower room with WC.

Upstairs, the main bedroom has an en-suite, incorporating the added luxury of a jacuzzi bath.
