Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Ventnor was made popular during the Victorian era when most of the town was built. The notably warmer climate is one reason why Ventnor remains a popular destination today. The town now offers a variety of shops, primary school, banks, pubs and restaurants. Ventnor Cricket Club and the Botanic gardens are close by.

A superbly presented Victorian seaside villa with four bedrooms to the main house and four Boutique Style holiday apartments. Close to Ventnor town centre, beaches and overlooking Ventnor Park.

The current owners have painstakingly refurbished and enhanced this fine Victorian Villa to create a truly impressive family home and a thriving holiday letting business providing a substantial income. Ideally located on the outskirts of the highly popular South Wight resort of Ventnor, the property offers the perfect opportunity to build on the current success of the business whilst at the same time enjoying private family accommodation comprising the entire ground floor. Alternatively the property would suit anyone seeking a substantial flexible family home with flexible secondary accommodation.

The entire ground floor is currently utilised as owners' accommodation. However, if not required it could easily be offered as an additional holiday apartment providing generous living accommodation and the added benefit of its own private garden to the front. Whilst not confirmed, it would not seem unreasonable to achieve approximately £1,800 per week in peak season. Subject to obtaining any necessary planning and consents.

The property retains many period features such as high skirting boards, moulded cornices and architraves. Ventnor is an extremely sought after location on the Island proving very popular for those looking to relocate to enjoy the quieter pace of life. There is an extensive range of shops, restaurants, and cafes in the town centre and the beautiful bay offers a perfect place to enjoy the local "micro-climate" that the setting enjoys.

The property is set back from Park Avenue and overlooks Ventnor Park. A pathway leads to the front of the house with an enclosed storm porch and into the impressive hallway with a beautiful period staircase. The sitting room is truly impressive with a bay window to the front and large wood burner. The spacious kitchen/dining room has been totally renovated with attractive built-in units, worktops and integrated appliances. This large room also enjoys views over the front garden. The master bedroom is light and airy with a modern bathroom en-suite and walk-in wardrobe. The remaining three bedrooms comprising the "private" accommodation are also spacious with bedroom 2 benefiting from the shower room en-suite.

The four Holiday Apartments occupy the second and top floor of the property and can either be accessed from a separate entrance to the rear or via the main house. The apartments have been designed to an extremely high standard to offer Boutique style accommodation. The apartments named Victoria, Albert, Carisbrooke and Osborne vary in size therefore offer flexible accommodation.

Each apartment has been fully equipped with everything that guests could require to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay in this beautiful location. Details of occupancy rates and trading income are available to potential buyers on request. The current owners would be prepared to offer the property as an ongoing business to include the majority of the fixtures and fittings in the apartments. This would form part of the negotiation. The exact layout of the apartments is outlined on the floor plan forming part of these sales particulars.
