Property sold
7 bedroom Country House in Shanklin, Isle of Wight, £825,000

Ventnor office.
As you approach ‘Dunnose Magna’ down the ½ mile drive, the sea is framed in front of you by a beautiful rolling landscape. Wildlife abounds and the warm stone and thatch of this great house invites you towards it.
The property enjoys a unique position with direct access to the coastal path and is in an area of outstanding natural beauty which is protected by the National Trust. The town of Shanklin lies to the east and Ventnor to the west, both offering all amenities.
There are two highly rated schools nearby, St. Francis Primary and the new Island Free School for secondary education.

‘Dunnose Magna’ has been completely refurbished in recent years. There are two impressive oak staircases which provide galleried double height spaces and Italian marble floors which unite the east and west wings of the house with a central conservatory flooding light into the heart of this home.

The current owners let one of the wings for holiday accommodation and this could be continued if desired. The house works equally well as one large seven bedroomed property.

To the front of the house is a large area of brick and gravel driveway with gated access and a double garage with electric up and over door which is integral to the house.
