Full description

The St. Maur was built in 1876 and is a beautiful example of a Victorian villa constructed of island stone.

St. Maur has been in the same family since 1966 and has been both a home and business to two successive generations. The current owners took over the reins in 1989 and have evolved the accommodation to create a boutique style hotel. They are now planning to retire and hence the property is for sale.

The villa enjoys a superb location, nestled between Ventnor's town centre with its beach and esplanade, and picturesque Steephill Cove, with its selection of cafes and restaurant. The botanic gardens are a short walk away and Ventnor's award winning park is just below, enhancing the sea views with a verdant foreground.

The accommodation has been comprehensively upgraded over the years reducing the total number of guest bedrooms to 8 to enable the creation of very large en-suites.
There are elegant generously sized public spaces, the drawing room being particularly notable with its lovely period features and marble fireplace.
French doors open onto the south facing terrace which is sheltered by an attractive ironwork verandah and extends into the tropical landscaped gardens. The gardens are beautifully maintained and surround the villa creating a spectacular backdrop. The dining room has a wall of glass looking out to impressive palm trees and banana plants for an exotic dining experience.
