Offering spectacular sea views over Sandown Bay towards Culver Cliff, this magnificent villa was built in 1929, as a luxurious gentlemen’s residence. Noted local architect, Ernest Smith, was commissioned to take full advantage of the cliff-top location and exceptionally sunny climate to produce one of the Isle of Wight’s premium properties. He designed a grand detached house with decadently proportioned rooms: all main living and bedrooms have large windows topped by stained glass detail, framing the vistas. Art Deco influences include an upstairs sun room with huge sliding picture windows to enjoy the breathtaking sunrises by day and bay illuminations by night. Huge stained glass windows bring out the oak-panelled hallway, magnificent staircase and galleried landing.
The Isle of Wight. : Cliff-top walks begin from the garden gate; the tarmac cliff path enables people of all ages and abilities to take a stroll, five minutes to the sandy beaches. The cliff forms a backdrop to a long sandy Blue Flag award-winning beach that extends from Sandown to Shanklin. Swimming and watersports are supported by lifeguards in summer. For those who can tear themselves away from the beach, the area around Sandown Bay is renowned for its fossils, and ¼ mile away from the house lays Shanklin with its charming, historic village, thatched cottages, tea rooms, small shops, seafront train service and lift to the cliff path. For the more energetic, there are longer walks from home, through chimes and parkland landslips, to Ventnor, for a well-deserved hearty meal at a renowned inn. There are over 500 miles of footpaths and cycle tracks on the island, half of which is designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The island offers opportunities to explore sites like the Needles.
