The Old Byre represents a unique opportunity to create a fabulous home finished to your own specification, set in a peaceful rural position between popular Cowes and Northwood.
The Old Byre is a single storey traditional farm building with consent for conversion to a single-level two-bedroom home surrounding a courtyard garden and with plenty of driveway parking. The property offers the opportunity to be developed into a very attractive open plan dwelling with modern facilities whist retaining the period features and space associated with a barn conversion. By separate negotiation a further barn, located on the south side of the courtyard garden, could be acquired and would make an ideal garage (subject to consent).
Situated on a farm and accessed via a lane from the A3020 main Newport to Cowes Road which is a main bus route, The Old Byre is located just a short walk away from the local Aldi supermarket and the Cowes Park and Ride station, giving convenient access to Cowes town centre and to the high speed Red Jet service to the mainland. The Newport-Cowes cycleway is just a short ride away. Cowes is renowned as the Home of World Yachting, and benefits from wonderful boutique shopping, as well as independent restaurants, bars and cafes.
The building is L-shaped and was originally built some 100 years ago to milk dairy cows. It is constructed of traditional red-brick elevations beneath slated roofs with attractive terracotta T-shaped air vents. It abuts another traditional barn to the east. There are parking spaces for multiple vehicles and a small front garden area on the north side of the building. Within the L of the building is a courtyard, walled on the other sides by farm buildings and which provides the opportunity to create a pretty courtyard garden perhaps with central feature. Accommodation will comprise of an open plan kitchen/living/dining area with vaulted ceilings and bi-fold glazed doors and a glazed wall, and a hallway which leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom.
