This large Victorian villa is located in Sandown, a popular tourist destination for visitors with its sandy beaches, countryside and nature walks and classic seaside attractions.

The property was previously run as a guest house with eight en-suite lettings rooms in the main house.

However the current owners now occupy this as their family home and have created four fantastic letting rooms within the adjoining and self-contained annexe accessed at the side of the house. 

The letting rooms are accompanied by an attractive and sheltered courtyard with plenty of space for guest seating.

The main house has retained some Victorian features, such as high ceilings and ornate coving and presents well as a spacious family home, with its own enclosed private garden and ample parking.

In readiness for the 2022 season, the letting rooms have been recently refurbished and have proven popular with visitors.

The property is extremely versatile and is a great proposition for buyers seeking additional income to accompany their home.

Entry is via a spacious entrance hall and there is a games room with double doors which leads out to the enclosed garden and solid wood flooring.

The sitting room has ornate coving, high ceilings, solid wooden flooring and a large fireplace, plus double doors leading out to the enclosed wraparound verandah and an attractive alcove seating area.

There is a separate dining room, which was once used as a ground floor letting room and has a large shower room en-suite.

The kitchen was used as a commercial kitchen until recently — this would benefit from refurbishment, should buyers choose to occupy the main house as their private home.

There is also a handy store room, which has potential as a home office, plus a separate cloakroom.

The first floor is home to a number of double bedrooms, all of which have en-suites.

Upstairs on the second floor, you will find the master bedroom, which has sloping ceilings and an en-suite shower room.

The annexe has four double bedrooms, all of which have en-suite shower rooms.

The annexe benefits from its own private courtyard area, with tables and chairs for guest seating. 

There is a detached garage with double doors, currently used for storage by the occupiers. A timber shed sits screened from the courtyard by fencing.

The main house has an enclosed garden which has been mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs forming the boundary and screening from the road. 

A large, raised pond and an abundance of tropical plants and mature shrubs add interest to this enclosed area.

Sandown is very popular with visitors to the Isle of Wight, largely due to its large number of attractions, including the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary; Sandham Gardens and Dinosaur Isle museum.
