Simon and Caroline


After 19 years of living in Brighton, newly retired Simon and Caroline were excited to settle down and find their dream home on the Isle of Wight, the island they honeymooned on many years ago. With their home under offer and just 6 weeks away from completion, this couple were desperate for help finding their forever home.

However, whilst they could agree on the Isle of Wight, Simon and Caroline had very different ideas about exactly where on the island would suit them best. Having lived by the coast for a long time, Simon was not ready to leave the fresh sea air behind, whilst Caroline fancied a change and was ready to embrace the beautiful open spaces of the countryside.

With a budget of £270,000 their requirements included a minimum of 2 bedrooms and a large south or west facing garden.


Despite a rocky start in both locations there were smiles all round in the end. A coastal bungalow in Seaview, on the market at £275,000, had Caroline convinced and Simon elated. With 2 bedrooms, a large south-east facing garden and a conservatory, this property ticked all of their boxes. Simon and Caroline were delighted to offer £270,000 for this property and their offer was accepted.
