The Property
This property is certainly not a book to be judged by its cover and offers much more than meets the eye. It is a substantial three storey detached home, sitting proud within an elevated position, and boasting unsurpassed views over the town of Ventnor and across the English channel. Its superb location offers a quality lifestyle that so many of us aspire to achieve. The layout is well thought out and offers a great deal of space and flexibility. It currently serves its owners superbly as a spacious home as well as two successful private guest studios with a healthy income.

Stepping down from the off road parking area, the main entrance is private and well screened from the road. Upon entering the house, you are immediately mesmerised by the breath taking view. This light filled south facing home has been extensively refurbished and is designed to provide generous levels of space. The accommodation is well thought out and has been arranged to maximise the sought after views. Wherever you move, you are aware of the sea and its ever changing mood...

The property could internally provide four or more bedrooms depending on your needs. Both luxury guest studios have magnificent sea views, outdoor seating and their own private entrances. The suite on the top floor/street level has an inter leading door and could well be used as part of the owners' living accommodation. The terraced garden is well established and designed for low maintenance.

Ventnor, a quintessential Victorian seaside resort, is located towards the Southern point of the island and as well as being highly scenic, it also provides some of Britain's best recorded climates. With the beach, stunning coastline, and a host of restaurants, bars and shops, this is an area spoilt for beauty. If you are looking for a more relaxed life by the coast, this property's position and its thoughtful design, combined with the unique island climate, delivers it all.

Seller’s Comments
When we first came to view the property many years ago, it was an instant decision for us: this is where we wanted to live! We bought the magnificent view and then the house delivered so much more than we expected. The lay out provides for comfort and easy living and you never tire of the captivating views from almost every room.

We get a lot of satisfaction from the holiday let. It developed over a period of time and proved to be very popular, with many guests returning year after year. The arrangement to mainly take bookings for 7 day periods brings little stress and gives us more freedom.

It is a truly wonderful place to live.
