Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Enviable views of one of the biggest Island landmarks – the coastal headlands and The Solent are enough to entice any buyer to this beautiful home. The property itself dates back to 1868 and boasts a superb mix of old and new since its refurbishment.

This home incorporates three bedrooms, with bedroom 1 having an en-suite, which has a perfectly placed window to take in the stunning sights of The Needles and your beautiful surroundings whilst you prepare for the day. Also on the first floor is a separate cloakroom and a fourth bedroom which currently serves as a dressing room. Bedroom 2 is also on the first floor, along with a balcony to enjoy the views.

The lounge overlooks the pretty front garden and enclosed grounds, as well as Tennyson Downs. There

are steps leading down to the music room, which is also full of character and has large windows to both the front and side aspects.

The property offers double-glazing and has zoned underfloor heating in the reception rooms and bedroom 1 as well as oil-fired heating, via radiators, in the balance of rooms.

The accommodation is versatile for people’s needs and a second property also occupying this tremendous site and boasting similar striking views is available on a separate listing.

The extensive gardens offer scope for business and income, should a buyer wish to utilise the land to its true potential, however, if a selection of coastal and headland walks is more your cup of tea, the surrounding area will ensure you never feel at a loose end.

What the Owner says:


You can’t help but fall for the beauty of the cottage, gardens, views and lifestyle living at Alum Bay. Whatever the time of year or weather, the views always amaze and are ever-changing and the sunsets in winter enjoyed with a mug of hot chocolate as much as a glass of wine on clear summer evenings, the perfect place for stargazing.

The well-planted garden is a delight to sit in and enjoy sea views, to watch boats passing The Needles with an array of air and other sea activity. The cottage is spacious and airy and would be well suited to a couple who have hobbies, as well as to a family who need extra space. All rooms have the finest views towards the sea and as far as Tennyson monument.
