Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This imposing house was built with great attention to detail in the late Victorian era and is packed with historical importance having once been a convent and latterly a highly impressive and substantial coastal residence. Having been a family under the same ownership for the past two decades the house is now ready for a new owner to enjoy this inspirational offering.

There is a degree of opulence with the grand staircase rising through two storeys, ornate ceilings and the superb decorative fireplaces featured in the drawing room and in the formal dining room. The house provides exceptionally spacious and versatile accommodation throughout with particularly well-proportioned principal rooms which include a stunning Billiards room and an 'Oval' office.

The heart of the house belongs in the well-equipped family sized kitchen fitted with an array of wall and floor standing cupboards which incorporates a wine rack, glass fronted display units and deep pan drawers, still allowing ample space centrally for a table and chairs. A practical utility room sits adjacent with direct access from the rear garden. There is the opportunity to convert the ground floor suite, complete with shower room into a self-contained annex should one be required. The master bedroom is positioned towards the front elevation taking full advantage of the magnificent sea view as are two further double bedrooms which could all quite easily be re assigned to form individual suites. Four additional double bedrooms accompany these rooms to complete the upper two floors along with the viewpoint balcony and the three well appointed, modern fitted bathrooms.

The house is well presented and has been professionally maintained to a high standard over the years. It is currently laid out as having 7 bedrooms and potential annex over 3 floors, it offers genuinely flexible accommodation extending to around 6500 square foot of internal space. All of the principle rooms are well proportioned, the majority of the stunning period features have been kept.

Saint Winifred's occupies a prestigious corner plot within this extremely sought after and affluent area of Totland Bay on the well-known Turf walk. The local beach and esplanade in Totland Bay are within a few hundred yards walk, where one can enjoy a quiet relaxing time on the beach or visit the 'Waterfront' bar/restaurant, which provides a lovely place to enjoy the renowned sunsets. A short stroll along the esplanade takes you to Colwell Bay with stunning sandy beach and the well renowned restaurant, The Hut. The historic harbour town of Yarmouth with its mainland ferry terminal and excellent sailing facilities, is within a ten-minute drive. 

OUTSIDE The house benefits from being in a well-kept and relatively low maintenance garden, which measures about 0.89 acres (0.352 ha). This level plot is mostly laid to lawn and used to have a grass tennis court located to the west of the house. There are two timber framed detached double garages; one of which is located at the end of the driveway and the other alongside the lawns which is used for storage of garden machinery/tools. There is an additional pedestrian gate in the south-east corner of the property.
