Tenure: Freehold


This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise’s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property’s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £165,000, please contact Pittis.


Merrie Gardens is a really popular estate midway between Shanklin and Sandown – offered with vacant possession and requiring modernisation throughout, this charming little bungalow is perfect for someone looking to put their own stamp on, either to live in themselves or as an investment to rent out, or to sell on.

Built in the 80’s, most of the works required appear to be superficial, making this an ideal project to get stuck into – with both a driveway and garage, there’s plenty of room to store your tools whilst re-furbishing.

Inside, a nice size double bedroom overlooks the back garden and has a handy storage cupboard that could be used as a wardrobe. In the bathroom, the bath has been removed to make way for a large walk in shower & seat, which may come in really handy for those with mobility issues. The lounge / dining room has a cosy multi fuel stove and double doors out onto a single glazed conservatory, which would probably benefit from upgrading. The kitchen is probably original, but is a great size to play with during modernisation and is home to a more modern boiler which provides hot water and central heating via the radiators. This is what we call “bags of potential” so book now to take a look inside!

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.
