Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This detached character property is understood to have been the quarters for the head gardener of Steephill Castle and formed part of the Steephill Estate. Various pictures throughout the property substantiate this with one in particular showing the left wing of the building with a caged front providing a home for the Estates poultry stock. In later life the building is believed to have served as accommodation to the more highly ranking staff of the Royal national hospital which today is Ventnor Botanical gardens. Today this most picturesque home provides very charming and flexible living accommodation with sea views from many of the rooms. Approached via a private driveway Tanglewood is set within its own private enclave with grounds that provide a combination of open lawn and wooded areas.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a sun room with velux window and tile effect laminate flooring, doors from here lead to the outside and a lobby which interconnects with reception room three.
