View this property right now via our Online Video Tour..............................And now for something completely different! This stunning and superbly individual detached home sits within the pleasant hamlet of Whippingham. Approximately 4 acres of garden, woodland and orchard surround 'Malacca' clearly creating a peaceful environment to reside. The house has evolved from original uses and has undergone subsequent renovations with nautical influences. The sprawling ground floor layout accounts for a majority of the accommodation and reception space leaving a vaulted ceiling master bedroom with balcony at first floor level overlooking the grounds. The generous lounge has parquet flooring, log burner and a glazed bay ensuring the room is flooded with natural light. The parquet floor runs through to the adjacent kitchen/diner whose dimensions and vaulted ceiling make for another spacious room. There are simply too many wonderful internal character features to list, suffice to say if your preference is for pre-modern era attributes then this house has got them by the bucket load. There is a stable block and a small paddock within the acreage although if you are looking for specific equestrian uses then you may well need to clear some of the woodland to create sufficient space. Other outbuildings include a wood store and a particularly large double garage all positioned within a gated courtyard. The River Medina is close enough to be visible from the upper floor balcony and from certain parts of the grounds. East Cowes will be your nearest principle town and you will be almost equidistant from the towns of both Newport and Ryde. Mainland car ferry connections are found at East Cowes and nearby Fishbourne alternatively passenger connections are found along the Esplanade at Ryde. If you hanker for the great outdoors you will have an easily accessible network of footpaths and bridleways meandering through the surrounding countryside to explore.
