Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This substantial family home is situated on a tree-lined avenue on the outskirts of Shanklin town. The property was once two cottages, and has since benefited from extensive refurbishment to create a large five-bedroom family home with spacious rooms. The front of the home has extensive parking for numerous vehicles, with gated access from the road. On entering the home, your attention is taken by the well-fitted kitchen / breakfast room that has been thoughtfully designed with tri-folding doors giving access to an area perfect for enjoying morning coffee and breakfast. The central island accompanies the attractive light wall & base units throughout this space, as well as a pantry, giving extensive storage for any keen cook. The lounge and dining areas have been partially opened, giving a wonderful flow to the room whilst still retaining their defined purposes. Both of these rooms are approximately 19ft in length and offer dual aspect windows and tri fold doors from the lounge area, ensuring these rooms benefit from ample light.

Additionally to the ground floor is a study, a shower room with utility cupboard as well as a large internal hallway, providing ample space for any family. There is also another reception room to the ground floor, which is currently used as a gym for the current owner but could easily serve a place, as a children’s playroom should any new owner need. The first floor of the home again benefits from a large landing space, and five bedrooms. Four of which are double rooms, with the master offering an en-suite fitted with a large double shower cubicle and bedroom two benefiting from a large dressing area. The family bathroom has been fitted with a full suite to include a curved shower cubicle and free standing bath, so whether you wish to enjoy a long soak or grab a quick shower on the run, your needs are catered for. To the rear of the home, the rear garden offers a range of mature shrubs and is mainly laid to lawn, but also retains a large workshop that was once the garage. This now offers extensive storage or an ideal man cave for family members. For any buyers searching for a large property within walking distance of Shanklin town this property is more than worth a look.

What the Owner says:

This property is a beautiful haven set in the lovely tree-lined Victoria Avenue. It is a five minute walk into Shanklin Old Village with its many restaurants and pubs, and ten minutes to the seaside with even more restaurants, cafes and clean sandy beaches.

Having spent four years renovating the house it is now a light and airy home with a feeling of tranquillity. There is so much space for a family and plenty of rooms for guests to stay. Or, if you just want a peaceful break, then sit on the patio enjoying the garden having a coffee in the sunshine – which is what I am doing now as I write this! Shanklin gets the most hours of sunshine in the UK!
