About the property

A lovely terraced Victorian townhouse situated in the town of Ventnor on the Isle of Wight.

This is a perfect location for families or a group of friends wishing to explore this delightful island.

This beautiful Victorian townhouse was newly refurbished in 2015, whilst still retaining many of its original features with a lovely first floor roof terrace with wrought iron balustrade and a three tiered garden, which all offer unobstructed sea views.

On the ground floor is a twin bedroom, and a stunning open plan living area with fitted kitchen, including a range oven and island, a large dining table, and a comfortable sitting area to relax and watch TV.

Bi-folding doors in the living area open onto the decked seating area, combining the house and garden together, so that you can sit and relax with your morning coffee and enjoy the picturesque sea views.

The first floor also has a twin bedroom with lovely views of the Downs, a family bathroom, which has retained quirky original features and the main sitting room, with French doors leading out onto the elegant balcony/roof terrace furnished with sun loungers.

Up on the second floor is another twin bedroom, family shower room and the master bedroom, with a king bed and a beautiful roll-top bath.

Even from the bed and bath one can admire the superb sea views.

From the decking, step down into a small cottage garden, a perfect butterfly haven, walk through the gate into the slate patio, where there is a rattan table, benches and Weber BBQ and enjoy a well-deserved drink, whilst watching the glistening sea and some of the most stunning sunsets.

Two minutes’ walk from this lovely cottage is the beach at Wheelers Bay, a fisherman’s paradise, and from here you can walk along the sea defences and concrete coastal path to the Esplanade in Ventnor where there are many pubs, restaurants and cafés.

A little further along the coastal path is the picturesque Steephill Cove, the perfect beach for swimming, or simply just indulging in savouring the locally-caught crab and lobsters in one of the many eateries, a little haven even in the height of the summer time.

There is so much to do and see on the Isle of Wight including visiting The Needles Adventure Park which has a park, shopping centre, tea rooms, 9-hole golf course and many other attractions.

A truly wonderful Victorian townhouse, that you can enjoy all year round.

About the location


Newport 10 miles; Cowes 15 miles.

The quaint Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor is located at the southern end of the island and accessed via an array of steep winding roads set amidst beautiful scenery. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming town has a uniquely mild micro climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area. The gently sloping sandy and fine shingle beaches and coves provide excellent facilities for watersports and offer a range of stunning coastal paths to explore, while the harbour sells a broad range of fresh fish and locally-caught seafood. A good variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants line the esplanade, whilst the Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit. With plenty to see and do around the island for all the family, including great walking and cycling opportunities, medieval castles, historic houses and a variety of gardens and waterfalls, as well as the unspoilt fishing bay, this great holiday destination has plenty to offer all year round, and it's easy to see why it's known as the prettiest place on the Isle of Wight.
