Property description

This fascinating property has its origins in the Georgian era or maybe even earlier and has not been on the market for more than 50 years. It has immediate kerb appeal as you drive up to the front door and see the attractive stone exterior, high chimney stacks, brick trim around the multi-pane casement windows and front door leading to the main entrance hall. Nestling behind a stone wall on one side of a large lawned garden with stunning, panoramic views across the countryside to the sea, the cottage includes a two-storey annex converted from the original stable block with its entrance linked via the attractive conservatory from the main cottage with additional access from the courtyard. This has been a highly successful holiday let over the years with further opportunities to develop additional accommodation in the 200-year-old stone outbuildings beyond the office and surrounding the cobbled yard area, subject to appropriate planning permission. The original cottage includes an interesting lounge with a stone fireplace and unusual two-way arched wood and multi-pane doors between the lounge and the dual aspect dining room that includes a cast iron fireplace. There is an attractive L-shaped kitchen with solid oak units and matching dresser and double-glazed doors linked by the conservatory to the large annex which has been converted from the original stables and the possibility of converting the coach house adjacent to the office. Upstairs there is a family bathroom and three double bedrooms offering gorgeous panoramic views across the surrounding countryside to the sea and includes the master with a vanity basin. There is also a good-sized cellar that is ideal for storage. Alternatively, the entire property could become a single dwelling incorporating four reception rooms, six bedrooms, three bathrooms and two kitchens. From the conservatory entrance there is an attractive front door to enter the annex, leading into the current dining room with stairs to a self-contained suite on the first floor consisting of a bedroom and en-suite bathroom. The annex dining room has an appealing archway through to the kitchen/living room. This attractive area includes aqua coloured wood units, colourful tiles and the original panelling from when it was stables. This floor also incorporates a bathroom, double bedroom and a study with its own entrance from the courtyard, so is very useful for anyone working from home as business visitors can go straight into the office.

What the Owner says:
It has been our family home for more than 50 years and is where we all grew up and we are naturally sad to see it go. However, with the loss of our parents it is now time to hand the reins of this fascinating home on to new owners who would have the opportunity to take advantage of the huge potential to extend and enhance this property and make it their own.
We have all loved growing up here in the middle of the countryside surrounded by the stunning views. There are wonderful walks along the coastal path to St Catherine's Lighthouse and a short stroll will take you to the Niton village where you will find Joe's Bar that includes a café and the post office. There is also a pharmacy, convenience store and medical centre as well as a nursery and primary school with the excellent White Lion pub a short walk up the hill while along St Catherine's Road there is the charming Buddle Inn.
We are not far from Reeth Bay and only a little over five miles to Ventnor with its charming seafront and great walks along the sea wall and beside the gorgeous Cascade Gardens. Ventnor's all year-round climate is milder than that surrounding it and as is notable for its superb Victorian Botanic Gardens, where you can enjoy a stroll round this 22-acre sub-tropical paradise. The town has a number of sporting clubs including cricket, rugby, football, angling and bowling as well as a riding school and local golf club.
