While this Isle of Wight home for sale may present itself as a country cottage from the front, the back reveals space, open plan living and five bedrooms, over three floors, as well as easy access to Newport's amenities and countryside.

Set in Watergate Road, and on sale through agent Spence Willard, The Acorns' main living area is triple-aspect and opens out from a large, tiled entrance hall.

While one set of bi-fold doors allow the kitchen to be separated from the sitting area and dining room, yet another set provides easy access to the garden.

The kitchen has integral appliances, including a dishwasher and wine cooler, as well as a NEFF eye-level double oven.

On the middle floor, find three of the property's five bedrooms, along with a separate sitting area.

Among them, the master suite has an en-suite bath and separate shower, and overlooks the property's lawns, as well as St Georges Down.

On the top floor, there are two further bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms.

Outside, a separate brick outbuilding, recently refurbished, has double glazed French doors, power and lighting, and is currently being used as a home gym.

Permission has been granted for a detached garage.

Separate access from St Georges Road is granted by licence and would have to be renewed. This can be agreed before contracts are exchanged.
