This fine stone villa was designed to make the most of the wonderful southerly views and provides light and characterful accommodation. Set in grounds of approximately 0.75 acre, virtually at the end of Shore Road with unrivalled access to the beach and wonderful coastal walks. The house has undergone some sympathetic modernisation in recent years including a new kitchen, three new bathrooms and utility room and has further potential as well as planning consent to extend. There are south facing gardens including a heated swimming pool and terraces. Bonchurch is a particularly sought-after coastal location benefitting from a great microclimate and was popular in the Victorian era, regularly visited by the likes of Charles Dickens. The Bonchurch Inn and St Boniface Old Church are also within the village. Nearby Monks Bay provides an attractive beach whilst there are superb coastal walks including to nearby Ventnor, where there are a good range of shops, bars and restaurants.
