Ready-to-move-into homes are always appealing and Southern House is one of those.

This extended semi-detached home is in a wonderful country location in Canteen Road, at Whiteley Bank.

This makes it within easy reach of both Shanklin and Ventnor, so coastal walks and lazy summer days on some of the Island’s most wonderful beaches are sure to be on the agenda.

The property is immaculately presented throughout, having been recently refurbished.

The downstairs layout is particularly family friendly, with sociable open-plan living areas and a convenient downstairs WC.

The entrance hall has immediate appeal, with the original exposed brick wall adding character, and a part-painted, part exposed-wood staircase, with white-painted balustrades.

The open-plan areas include a large kitchen/breakfast room, separate dining area and a relaxing lounge, with the all-important wood burner to keep things cosy.

Practical, stripped wooden floors are a feature throughout the accommodation and extend to the useful utility area too, where there is space for an American-style fridge/freezer, as well as the washing machine.

There is an exterior door for side access here too.

The rear of the property can be accessed via French doors from the kitchen/breakfast room, which is spacious and light, with an extensive range of quality units and wood-style worksurfaces.

The large garden itself is a truly relaxing spot.

It is mainly laid to lawn and backs onto farmland for as far as the eye can see.

There are two good-size flagstone patio areas too, where there is plenty of room for outdoor furniture so you can effortlessly hold a summer barbecue or outdoor party in beautiful surroundings.

You could also add a hot tub — the current owners are effusive about the glorious sunset views from the garden.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms — all immaculately presented.

Again, wooden floors are a feature of the upstairs bedrooms and two of the rooms benefit from those superb countryside views, which will be a pleasure to wake up to.

Bedroom one is a spacious double room, with a front-aspect, which again offers rural views the other side of the main road.

There is a contemporary family bathroom, with a shower over the bath.

Other benefits are the attached garage and off-road parking.
