Situated in a highly desirable and convenient location, this elegant Victorian property presents a rare opportunity to purchase an exquisite five-bedroom family home complete with three reception rooms and a well-designed, low-maintenance rear garden.

Quality finishes and a wealth of appealing period charm mean that this traditional Victorian yet contemporary family home offers the best of everything, from the stylish well-considered interiors to the beautifully exposed original features such as handsome marble fireplaces, elaborate wall and ceiling mouldings, stained glass feature windows and wooden panel doors. Extended, renovated and exquisitely upgraded over the past ten years, Cranleigh provides the peace of mind that plenty of significant home improvements have been completed such as the addition of a double-storey rear extension to create an extra bedroom and reception room, a sophisticated kitchen-breakfast room with quartz countertops, and a luxurious bathroom as well as the creation of a separate wet room - perfect for busy family life in the mornings. From the moment you step inside the property, the traditional double-height ceilings create a sense of grandeur and free-flowing space and the big bay windows to the front elevation provide elegance and additional space within both the ground floor sitting room and first floor principal bedroom. Furthermore, the property benefits from double-glazing to the rear with bifold doors to a decked sun terrace, and the gas central heating system has been extended throughout the home with characteristic column radiators also installed. Creating a wonderful outdoor living environment with room for a hot tub, the spacious decked terrace leads to a low-maintenance artificial lawn area which has access to a garage and double timber gates opening to Mount Pleasant Road, providing the potential to be utilised as a driveway.

Positioned on an elevated corner plot providing rural views beyond the neighbouring houses, Cranleigh is perfectly placed on the outskirts of Newport town centre within short walking distance to the wide range of High Street shops, a cinema complex, restaurants and cafes. Multiple schools at primary and secondary level are within walking distance and the Southern Vectis bus station is located within the High Street providing an extensive network of bus routes across the island. The property is also well-connected to the surrounding countryside and enjoys easy access to plenty of rural walks including a historic amble up to the nearby Carisbrooke Castle. Other popular attractions in Newport include the multi-award-winning Monkey Haven and the spectacular Robin Hill Country Park. Being centrally located means you are never far from all the wonderful delights that the island has to offer, including the beautiful West Wight with its unspoilt beaches and rugged coastline. 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 Cowes to Southampton catamaran foot passenger service is located only 6.2 miles away.

The accommodation comprises an entrance porch and a grand hallway leading to a sitting room, a snug and a kitchen-breakfast room which continues to a rear reception room, currently used as a playroom. On the first floor, a spacious landing leads to five bedrooms, a family bathroom and a wet room.
