Presenting a wonderful opportunity to acquire a Victorian semi-detached family home offering three bedrooms, a family bathroom and cloakroom, open plan living and dining, and a fully enclosed rear garden with a summer house.

Dating back to 1890, this semi-detached family home has undergone recent cosmetic work including recently replaced skirting boards in the lounge-diner plus a new thermostat, a white column radiator and a fireplace with the opportunity to install a log burner. Within the kitchen, the base and wall cabinets have been refurbished and a porcelain sink and drainer has been installed within the worktop. The downstairs cloakroom has a recently replaced vanity hand basin with a chrome mixer tap, a smart wooden flooring has been installed, and wall-mounted shelves were added to allow for additional storage. New, solid wood internal doors have also been fitted throughout the ground floor. On the first floor, the bathroom has recently had the flooring replaced with a wooden floor, and each space has been fully redecorated. The loft space, accessible from the first-floor landing, offers potential to be converted into additional accommodation if required (subject to planning permission). In the garden, a timber-framed lean-to has been added to one side and a substantial summer house has been erected at the rear of the garden providing additional space for a home office, studio, or visitor accommodation. In places, the recent cosmetic work is still ongoing which provides the opportunity for the new owner to apply their own personal specifications and requirements as well as a chance for further modernisation if desired.

177 Carisbrooke Road is perfectly placed to enjoy a short flat stroll into the high street which offers a wide range of shops and supermarkets, restaurants and cafes, a cinema, and the Southern Vectis bus station which provides an extensive network of bus routes across the island. Multiple schools at primary and secondary level are within walking distance and some of the island's top family attractions and events are also nearby including the iconic Isle of Wight Festival, the popular Robin Hill Country Park and the magnificent Carisbrooke Castle. Being centrally located means you are never far from all the spectacular beaches and rugged countryside that the island has to offer, including the beautiful West Wight.

Regular car ferry travel links from Fishbourne to Portsmouth and East Cowes to Southampton are both within a 20- minute drive from the property, and the high-speed Cowes to Southampton catamaran foot passenger service is located only 5.6 miles away.
