Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial waterside residence, occupying a prime position on Totland seafront. This exquisite property, thought to of been built for the dignitary of its time as a show of wealth, boasts beautiful architecture and fine period features throughout. The property has had many uses in its time, to include a convent with its own chapel situated in the circular room now utilised as an impressive study to the ground floor of the home. The reception rooms are vast and many benefit from a dual aspect to both flood the rooms with light and admire the impressive water views and outlook over the southern coast of England. Entering the property from its gated entrance the façade is admirable, and although clearly extended over its lifetime the extensions have been sympathetic and add to the character of the home. A large entrance hall welcomes you, with a beautiful fireplace and grand stair case leading to the first floor allowing guests a taste of the grandeur this property offers. From here the drawing room invites you, with its wood panelled walls, high ceiling and exuberant fireplace which is a commanding feature of the room. With dual aspect windows giving superb water views and an impressive outlook over the surrounding gardens this room will impress your guests. The dining room adjacent is again a substantial room, able to accommodate the largest of dining tables without dwarfing the space. For less formal occasions the kitchen / breakfast room allows space for a large family table, and boast extensive wall to wall bespoke cupboards which are complemented with a solid wooden worktop, and caters for many built in appliances to include a triple oven which also incorporates two grills. The adjacent utility room is a large space, as well as housing two of the three boilers, has yet more storage space and ample room for all of your additional appliances. As well as the office on the ground floor there is also what has been used as a play room for the current owners, which links through to an additional room. This space also offers its own modern shower room allowing this area to be used as a separate annexe or ground floor bedroom facility if required. The first floor is accessed via a split staircase with the master bedroom and bedroom to the front giving superb views.

What the Owner says:


Four generations of our family have at times had the pleasure and the privilege of living in this splendid house over the last 15 years.

Its location, with such stunning views, is unsurpassable, and the warmth of Saint Winifred's welcome makes it a truly special place.

We've always felt we were merely caring for Saint Winifred's as stewards until the next family is ready to come into what we believe is truly one of the finest homes of the West Wight!
