This is an absolutely stunning detached house situated along Ducie Avenue, a private unmade road leading to the beach, in the charming seaside village of Bembridge. Within a few minutes’ walk to the village centre and with an idyllic beach at the end of the road, Belgrove House is a truly exceptional and very spacious holiday home with an indoor heated swimming pool. Bembridge itself is a very well serviced village with a greengrocer, butcher, bakery and fishmonger no less, all offering the best of the Island’s produce.
The house itself has an impressive frontage with a large driveway and plenty of parking for up to four cars. The entrance hall leads through to the sitting-room with a coal-effect gas fire and television, a warm and welcoming room to relax in which leads through to the open plan kitchen/dining-room. With a huge dining-table taking centre stage, the dining-room is flooded with light and has doors opening out onto the rear enclosed garden (please note there is a very slight change in the flooring level from the dining-room to the kitchen). Belgrove House has so much space it makes an ideal retreat for the extended family or two families.
Doors from the open plan kitchen/dining-room lead out to the good sized garden, a combination of patio and lawned area. A large outdoor table and barbecue is available for enjoying wonderful meals in the garden while soaking up the Island sunshine, before or after your dip in the pool! There is a separate snug room on the ground floor with soft seating and a television, ideal for the kids to watch their programme of choice.
Steps lead down to the second sitting-room, which is located to the rear of the house and is also equipped with a television, so with three in the house there will be no arguments about what to watch! There is also a football table and outdoor table-tennis table if you feel up to taking on the kids for a bit of family competition.
The indoor swimming pool leads off from this sitting-room, with a lockable door for safety if required. The pool is heated and with doors opening out onto the patio area, you will never want to leave the house. Finally through the pool room is one of the double bedrooms, a very spacious room with a large wet-room adjacent. This lovely bedroom also opens out onto the garden, so you will have to fight amongst yourselves to see who gets this room.
All the remaining four bedrooms are on the first floor, the master with an en suite, another double and two further bedrooms with 'zip and link' beds. There is an en suite to one of the doubles and an additional family bathroom, no need to worry about queues for your morning shower. The whole property has been decorated to a very high standard and provides guests with a luxurious holiday home in a wonderful location. Ducie beach at the end of the road is a combination of sand and shingle with overhanging trees for shade and offers perfect swimming conditions. Start your day with a morning dip before heading back for breakfast in the garden followed by a lazy day by the pool, holiday heaven.
