Farm Lane House
Originally constructed in 1912 and subsequently extended Farm Lane House now provides additional accommodation and letting units overlooking pretty gardens. The impressive house has white rendered elevations beneath a clay peg tiled roof and retains all its original period character from the arched entrance doorways, architraves and timber detailing, now complimented by recent additions, such as a high-specification kitchen and replaced double glazed windows. A particularly spacious family home boasting a range of well-proportioned accommodation over three floors with seven bedrooms and five bathrooms, 3 of which are ensuite. There are several superbly well-proportioned reception rooms with deep bay windows, original flooring and splendid garden outlook enjoyed from all principal rooms. In its current arrangement a one-bedroom holiday let adjoins the house, which could provide an annexe or be incorporated to give additional ground floor accommodation.

West Wing
Added in approximately 1980 the west wing consists of two additional properties; a two bedroom ground floor and two bedroom first floor apartment, both currently let out on assured short hold tenancies as is the three bedroom cottage, which was part of the original house. These additional properties have their own parking and garden space in a westerly aspect. They are kept in excellent condition and provide a helpful income stream.

The house sits comfortably within its own private grounds, which enjoy a superb southerly aspect lined with mature trees providing privacy, whilst there are various outbuildings completing an excellent package all around. The stunning gardens wrap around the property giving an excellent feeling of space and opportunity for outdoor dining enjoying the green and colourful outlook, where there is plenty of visiting wildlife, squirrels and birds. Largely laid to lawn, there are various well-stocked beds with an array of colour shrubs and specimen trees, with a mix of Silver birch, purple flowering Rhododendron and Clematis along with areas laid to meadow with wild flowers including Bluebells and Daffodil. To the boundary, which is largely fenced, mature Laurel hedge provides a blanket of green in addition to tall Firs and two magnificent Oaks. Outbuildings include a summerhouse with patio next to a small garden pond and to one side a kitchen garden with raised vegetable beds and greenhouse. A former swimming pool/shed now provides a good size workshop with a detached wooden garage and a large. For parking there is a gravelled driveway to the front of the house and also the separate units, each with their own gated entrance from Forelands Farm Lane.

The Island
Only 23 miles by 13 miles, and a short sea crossing from the mainland, the Island has a unique atmosphere boasting many attributes, not least of which is its slower pace of life and its own microclimate. It enjoys unspoilt villages and fine seaside resorts with many miles of impressive coastal scenery. With safe sandy beaches, it is a place for sailing, windsurfing and swimming, ideal for both young and old.

There are many ways of crossing The Solent to the Island. If travelling by car there is a choice of three routes all with frequent services: including, Portsmouth to Fishbourne (45 minutes). If travelling on foot there is a fast and frequent catamaran service from Portsmouth to Ryde (15 minutes) and a similar service from Southampton to Cowes (23 minutes), both connecting with regular mainline train services to London Waterloo. There is also a hovercraft from Southsea to Ryde, taking 10 minutes. To the west of Bembridge village is a small private aerodrome. Southampton Airport is also within easy reach, on the mainland. The Island is an international sailing mecca with many events throughout the season. The most famous is Cowes Week. In addition, there are many premier yacht and sailing clubs including nearby Bembridge Sailing Club and Brading Haven Yacht Club.

The Village has a good range of small shops for everyday needs, including an excellent fishmonger with freshly caught fish, a coffee shop, a farm shop, a butcher, delicatessen and several good restaurants. A more comprehensive range of shopping facilities is available in the county town of Newport (13 miles) and the nearby town of Ryde (7 miles). Located close to the eastern most point of The Island, Bembridge Harbour has extensive mooring facilities and two sailing clubs and there are wonderful coastal walks and sandy beaches accessible directly from the property. There are shallow beaches, perfect for swimming, kite-surfing and beach-combing.
