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 £360,000, please contact Pittis.


This stunning character property dates back to the 1880’s when it is believed to have been built for the mother of the then owner of adjacent Southford Farm. Expertly crafted from local building materials, this exceptionally spacious bungalow would have been a masterpiece of its time and still retains much of its original character and charm not to mention its glorious countryside view. Perched atop an elevated bank as its name would suggest, you get to admire the amazing sun sets over St. Catherines Down on the horizon. Set within a good sized plot there is plenty for any keen gardener to be kept busy all year round and with the recent addition of the newly built double garage plenty of space to store everything you might need to help you.

As you arrive and pull up on the large resin coated driveway step inside and you are immediately greeted by a spacious entrance hall which sets the theme for the rest of the bungalow. Both the main bedrooms are doubles and should you need it there is an occasional third bedroom off the lounge currently used as a sitting room. The sociable kitchen area has its own dining area making meal times a breeze. Impress family and friends in the conservatory where you can marvel at the spectacular countryside views and well-kept gardens which surround you.

This beautiful home really does have the wow factor and is sure to be a popular choice with a wide audience of buyers.

What the Owner says:

We bought this property around 15 years ago and as soon as we saw the views and the garden we knew we had to have it. Since owning the property, we have added the conservatory and double garage and have also bought an extra strip of land to the side from the farmer next door. There is quite a big loft area and it might be possible to create extra rooms up there if someone needed more space.
The views are incredible and we really enjoy the quiet location in the country but both Ventnor and Shanklin are only a short drive away. Now we are both retired it is time for us to move back to the mainland to be nearer to our family but we shall miss our lovely country home and everything that it has to offer.
