Panoramic sea views over the English Channel define this sunny coastal residence, which sits in an elevated position in an extremely sought-after location above scenic Bonchurch Village and close to popular Ventnor. With far reaching views to the South, and with St Boniface Down to the rear, there is a fantastic feeling of space and light in this two-bedroom home, which also benefits from expansive outside space.
The coastal theme continues inside, with large UPVC windows making the most of the magnificent views, a lovely fresh white colour scheme and neutral carpets throughout. The property sits back from Leeson Road, accessed by a service road, and also features a garage to the front aspect.
The current owners have enjoyed over 35 years in this home, which comprises of an entrance hall, fantastic kitchen, spacious lounge, dining room, two good size bedrooms, family bathroom, mature front garden with seating area, mature rear garden with shed, and a block built garage.
Approaching from the front, a solid stairway leads up past the single garage and mature terraced borders. To the front of the home are further mature borders around a concrete terrace, which is the perfect spot for a seating area to enjoy the panoramic sea views. Past the useful outside tap, under the exterior lantern there is a recessed storm porch, which is internally clad in a coastal style, and features a glazed UPVC front door, leading into…

ENTRANCE HALL Extending to 11'8 plus further 6'11
The L-shaped entrance hallway features fresh white ceiling with central pendant and smoke alarm, with an access hatch to the loft space. White walls and a neutral carpet continue the coastal theme, and there is an electric storage heater. A full-size door leads to a useful storage cupboard, which features it's own light and external window, as well as a high level wall unit, this neatly houses the electrical panel. Further doors lead off to the kitchen, lounge, bedroom 1, bedroom 2 and the bathroom.

KITCHEN 13'10 x 8'9 reducing to 6'9
A fabulously light kitchen which shares the amazing sea views of the dining room via a connecting glazed hatch. Presented with fresh white ceilings and walls, with a long strip light which illuminates the space after dark. Plenty of storage space is afforded by the mixture of wall and base units, all finished in a coastal blue hue, while a pull-out full-height larder drawer unit makes great use of the corner space. White tiles reflect light from the large UPVC window to the side aspect, while the beech roll-edged worktop perfectly compliments the light laminate flooring. A large round sink and drainer is integrated into the worktop, finished in a contemporary stainless steel and has a mixer tap over. There is space for a fridge freezer and oven/hob and also space and plumbing for a washing machine. There is a large storage heater to one end. A door leads into a good-sized airing cupboard which houses the water tank and is finished with useful slatted timber shelves.

LOUNGE 22'4 x 9'11
The generously proportioned lounge is the heart of this home, and extends into the full-width sun-lounge extension, which was added in 1971, which provides the panoramic views. A coved ceiling with central pendant are complimented by fresh white décor and neutral carpet, which makes the most of the abundance of natural light that floods this room. The elevated position of the property enhances the view even further, and the lounge benefits from a second aspect window to the East side. The lounge has a small fireplace, complete with an electric fire, and there is a further storage heater and telephone point. There is a TV point in the lounge, although it's unlikely to be needed with the amount of activity to be viewed in the Channel, plus the ever-changing dramatic seascapes to be enjoyed from the large windows! A broad doorway leads to the dining room.

DINING ROOM 9'8 x 7'6
Located in the sun-lounge extension, the dining room-with-a-view is the perfect proportion for a dining table and chairs.

The white décor continues, with a neutral carpet and a small storage heater provides warmth for cosy evening dining.
