Seven Sisters

Occupying a quiet, picturesque setting on the fringe of the Conservation Area of this sought after coastal village, Seven Sisters has direct access to wonderful coastal walks including to nearby Woody Bay and the village store and post office. There is an attractive wooded backdrop creating a sheltered setting whilst just to the east is Pelham Wood, an expanse of mature woodland, in all providing a tranquil environment and haven for wildlife. The area is renowned for having a warm and sunny micro-climate and there is a Botanic Garden nearby in Ventnor, where there is also a fish market, a range of shops, a blue flag beach, cafes and restaurants.

This detached house has extensive and versatile accommodation, principally on the ground floor designed to make the most of the panoramic views over the English Channel. The principal rooms are light and the house benefits from the recent partial modernisation including installation of new bathrooms and refurbishment of the kitchen. Historically part of the first floor serves as a self-contained apartment. The house sits within an attractive south facing garden planted with a wide array of mature plants making for an attractive setting with sea facing terraces and two outbuildings.
