Ring fenced farm with stunning views in an enviable position
Appuldurcombe Farm is a 193 acre livestock farm that has been in the same family for a number of years. The farm is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Chalk Downs between the villages of Wroxall and Godshill and at its highest point, enjoys panoramic views over the Isle of Wight.
There is a substantial farmhouse along with an impressive range of agricultural buildings and ancillary accommodation including an annexe, holiday cottage and a barn conversion that has been refurbished to create a substantial family home and farm office.
The land is ring fenced with gently undulating pastureland that has been divided into separate fields which are currently grazed by rare breed sheep and cattle.
Appuldurcombe Farm is located about 0.7 miles from Wroxall, a small village with a school, church, village shop and public house. About 3.1 miles away is the more established, seafront town of Ventnor which offers a range of amenities such as shops, supermarkets, cafes and pubs.
The Isle of Wight has a network of A roads that interlink and provide efficient access between neighbouring towns and villages. Fishbourne, Cowes and Yarmouth are about 10.9, 13.4 and 18.4 miles away providing ferries to the mainland including Gosport, Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington.
The Island provides many leisure opportunities, including sailing, golf, cricket, as well as several leisure centres with an impressive footpath network and well-used cycling routes.
