Space is often top of the list of must-haves when it comes to finding a new family home.

Location is an equally important consideration too, which is why Pendowrie — this spacious characterful home in Bembridge, will attract a lot of potential buyers.

Dennett Road is a sought-after quiet spot in the heart of the village, just a short stroll to the shops and amenities, as well as local beaches and walks.

There is off-road parking for one car and, as you step inside the home, a spacious entrance hall, with stripped wooden floors and carpeted stairs ahead.

The sitting room has a front aspect, with a large bay window and the original open fireplace. Again, there is an attractive stripped wooden floor.

A separate dining room is accessible from both the hallway and the kitchen, and is a naturally bright and welcoming space.

Notable features are the original cast iron fireplace and French doors through to the conservatory, which in turn leads to the large rear garden.

The conservatory is small but perfectly formed, with space for seating so you can sit and enjoy the pleasant garden outlook.

It also means you can open the doors to the garden and get plenty of air circulating in the summer.

The stylish kitchen is fitted with a range of white wall and floor units, with contrasting dark worksurfaces over and an inset white sink and draining board.

There is an integrated electric induction hob, with a cooker hood over, and an electric oven underneath.

A fridge/freezer is also integral and there is plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine.

The rear garden can be accessed from the dining room as well as the conservatory, which initially open out to a courtyard and a patio area respectively.

The large garden is a real delight and is mostly laid to lawn, with planted beds and borders enjoying a sunny southerly aspect.

A good-size brick-built shed (measuring approximately 15ft by 6ft) has power, light and two windows. There is an additional storage shed too.

Upstairs you will find three generous double bedrooms.

The master bedroom, has a walk-in bay window to the front aspect, a TV point, and an en-suite bathroom, fitted with a panelled bath with a shower over and glass screen, a wash basin and WC.

A further shower room serves the other bedrooms.

From the landing, another staircase leads to the loft room, which is a useful additional space, ideal as an office or hobby room, or for accommodating guests.

There are three Velux windows, allowing plenty of light and lots of storage into the eaves space.
