Shalfleet House is an exceptional family home with characterful yet flexible accommodation and well-proportioned rooms.

Originally built as the vicarage and packed full of history, Shalfleet House is believed to originate from 1873 with multiple later additions which have led to this imposing and fine house.

Now on the market for the first time since 1956, this is a great opportunity for a new owner to acquire this significant house.

This beautiful house offers extensive accommodation over three floors and is positioned in a sought-after location within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a stone’s throw from the breathtaking Newtown Nature Reserve.

It retains a wonderful array of period features, but could benefit from modernisation.

The main house has three reception rooms, including a well-proportioned drawing room with a feature fireplace, views over the gardens and a roof terrace above.

The sitting room is a stunning, formal dual-aspect room with large windows, a wood-burner and fitted bookshelves.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of wooden units and a striking baby blue electric-fired two-oven Aga.

The gorgeous kitchen is the heart of this home.

The ground floor also includes a study, utility/boiler room, a wine cellar, larder with slate surfaces, parlour, store and a WC.

On the first floor, the spacious master bedroom has a south-facing window, plus doors leading out to the west-facing balcony, which offers far-reaching views.

The second and third bedrooms have views over the gardens and built-in wardrobes, while the fourth bedroom also has built-in storage.

There is also a shower room and a sitting room with views towards Newtown Creek and The Solent on the first floor.

The second floor has another double bedroom and a further kitchen/breakfast room.

A well-presented one-bedroom flat is accessed internally from the first-floor landing or from the east side of the house. It has its own staircase, kitchen/diner, and bathroom with WC.

There is also a single-storey self-contained cottage in the grounds.

Outside, The Stable Block is an attractive period brick building currently being used as further storerooms/workshop, but it would make an excellent cottage/annex (subject to obtaining any necessary consents).

There is a range of quality outbuildings, including a relatively modern three-bay brick-built detached garage complex and a boat storage building with the ability to store multiple boats under cover.

The gardens are also particularly impressive, with a croquet lawn area, orchard, hard tennis court and formal lawns.
