A Grade II listed Jacobean Manor House in need of renovation with a range of stone barns and about 23 acres, set in a particularly quiet and picturesque setting.
The Manor Stenbury Manor is a Grade II Listed Jacobean Manor house and one of the original Domesday Manors faced with Island stone with a tiled and slate roof. It is thought to have been built in the 16th Century and altered in the 18th Century when the west wing was added by Sir Robert Worsley of Appuldurcombe who is said to have lived there while Appuldurcombe was rebuilt.
The Manor is now T shaped with two storeys and attics. The Manor has been vacant in recent years and is in need of renovation but many of the original features are still in place which include a four centred stone fireplace with keystone in the ‘great hall’, fielded panelling in the dining room and original 17th century mullioned windows.
The Manor comprises three reception rooms, a kitchen, study, WC and store on the ground floor with seven bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. In addition there is an attic with two rooms.
Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) amidst some of the most stunning countryside on the Isle of Wight, Stenbury Manor Estate is surrounded by open farmland with wonderful and far-reaching rural and coastal views. The estate is positioned to the south of the Island, between Ventnor and Newport, which between them have extensive recreational and shopping facilities.
The property is also in easy-reach of the popular centres of Ryde, Bembridge, Yarmouth and
Cowes, providing fast and frequent connections to Southampton, and from Fishbourne and Ryde to Portsmouth.
The Island is famous for its yachting and sailing in the renowned waters of The Solent.
