Property sold
8 bedroom House in Ventnor, Isle of Wight, Guide price £1,500,000

Ventnor office.

‘Cliff Dene’ is an iconic property which has been depicted in scenes of the coastal landscape of the Isle of Wight for many years.
This much loved period property was built in 1908 and sits benevolently above the beautiful Steephill Cove commanding views in all directions.
The current owners have lived in the house for over 50 years and have retained the original stained glass windows and numerous art deco features and motifs.
A large drawing room opens onto the verandah, now enclosed in glass, which overlooks the cove and there is a similarly large kitchen with space for dining. The other rooms of the house could be arranged in various ways, but there are eight bedrooms and two bathrooms. Heating is provided by electric wall mounted heaters and an oil fired Aga. The grounds surrounding the house include a recently completed driveway, parking and various out-buildings.
The location of this property is very special indeed and really does present a once in a lifetime opportunity.
