The dining room.

It would be possible to create a lovely living space for an older family member, as the downstairs bedroom and the living room are next to each other, so they could have their own lounge, with the shared kitchen close to hand as well.

Stairs lead to the first floor, where there is a large landing, the generous master bedroom, three further double bedrooms, a single bedroom, a separate WC and the family bathroom, which has a bath and overhead shower.

Additional benefits included gas-fired central heating and double glazing.

The generous amount of accommodation and vast amount of space on offer makes this an ideal home for a large family or those seeking to incorporate extended family members.

This substantial house has a wraparound garden.

Outside, the property is sat in the middle of the plot with a wraparound garden covering all four sides.

It is mainly laid to lawn and is a lovely private space, as it is bordered with tall hedges and shrubs.

There is a detached garage with an up-and-over door, external light and power, and next to the garage is ample space to create additional off-road parking.

Clarence Gardens is close to Small Hope Beach and is a great location from which to enjoy cliff top or seafront walks towards Shanklin Chine in one direction, or along the bay towards Sandown and Culver in the opposite direction.

The house is also just a short walk to Shanklin rail station and bus terminal for easy transport links to other major Island towns, including the county town of Newport.

If you are driving, Newport is approximately 15 minutes away by car and Ryde is about the same journey time, for fast passenger ferry and hovercraft links to the mainland. The car ferry at Fishbourne is not that far away either.

Viewings are highly recommended to appreciate the location and everything this spacious traditional property has to offer.
