A rare find indeed to have a detached character stone…
Marlborough Road, Ventnor, Isle of Wight, PO38 1TE
A charming and attractive stone built detached converted coach house which sits in a raised position in the location of one of the oldest farm dwellings in Ventnor.
This well designed home has a secret wow factor with an upper floor open to the large reception room and kitchen below. The unexpected double height space extends through the south facing Velux window to views of the tower of St. Catherine’s Church behind.
Located within a five minutes’ walk to Ventnor’s beach and Esplanade and even closer to the High Street for shops and restaurants, views to the front extend up to the magnificent evergreen hills of St. Boniface Down.
From the gated driveway parking to the front, a smaller gate opens through to the old stone walled courtyard garden. The front door to the side of this has stained glass in the upper half and welcomes you into a generous entrance hall.

Smart slate style floor tiles anchor this good size hall with its light décor and staircase up to the half landing with a glass brick window. There is plenty of space for coats above the radiator and a useful under-stair cupboard with a light.

Double doors to the garden, a large window to the front with views up to St. Boniface Down and the double height galleried aspect to this room, create a special dynamic of light and space. This carpeted room offers plenty of space for a sofa and dining table and in mild weather the double doors extend the room into the very private courtyard garden to the side.
The high ceiling with mezzanine glass fronted upper level and Velux window towards the church creates a dramatic aspect with glamorous LED lighting arranged around a border and a radiator ensures the voluminous space is kept toasty warm.
3.18m x 2.13m (10’5 x 7′)
The well equipped glossy kitchen is zoned by its slate tiled flooring and has further LED recessed ceiling lighting. The dark worktops and slate tiled splash-backs tie in with this palate and compliment the deep aqua blue of the units. There is a built-in contemporary Miele stainless steel gas hob with electric oven below and contemporary glass Miele extractor hood above. The one and a half bowl stainless steel sink and drainer has a mixer tap and there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher. Plenty of room for a fridge-freezer as well. The Gloworm gas combination boiler is tucked away in the corner.

A smart white and slate tiled bathroom continues the flow of the stylish décor in this beautifully modernised cottage with further sparkly LED recessed ceiling lighting. A high level window faces towards the church behind.
The white suite has a panel bath with a chrome shower above and glass screen. The pedestal wash hand basin is lit by a fitted light with shaver point. There is a low level w.c. and a ladder style heated towel rail and an extractor fan.
A glass brick window towards the church forms a charming focal point at the half landing stage and then a velux window at the first floor level really frames the views of St. Catherine’s church tower.

There is plenty of space for a double bed in this carpeted room which has sloping ceilings, a Velux window to the side and further cupboards into the eaves space. LED lighting is built into the ceiling.
The dimensions of this room belie its feel as a Velux window opens the space up to the far reaching views of St. Boniface down. Beautifully conceived this slate tile clad room offers all you need with a Triton shower, w.c., dual flush with concealed fittings and a wash basin with a mixer tap and a chrome ladder style heated towel rail.
The enclosed courtyard garden provides a spacious terrace for sitting and eating al fresco and enjoying the lovely landscape views of the downs. This is a low maintenance garden which reflects the stone of the cottage. A calming and relaxing space. Parking is provided with driveway to the side for one vehicle.
This is a delightful cottage with character and sophisticated interior design. Close to the town and beach yet tucked away.
