Constructed in 1890 and having remained in one families ownership, Milverton is now being offered on the market for the first time and comprises a large family home with lots of potential for modernisation or redevelopment. Occupying a corner plot, the house is only a few hundred metres walk from the beach at Lane End Road and has the coastal path directly accessible. The house enjoys pretty gardens extending to the south, whilst inside there is plenty of space and opportunity for remodelling and extending. The layout currently has a large sitting room and a dining room as well as a separate kitchen, pantry and drawing room. There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, one of which being ensuite, whilst a carport/store and substantial self-contained annexe make the property particularly versatile and together with an abundance of period character, original features and charm surrounded by well-tended gardens make for an excellent package all round.

Milverton is superbly located in close proximity to Lane End Beach and slipway and is situated on the coastal path. Bembridge boasts incredible views across The Solent and English Channel and is surrounded by miles of downland perfect for countryside walks. Bembridge Harbour has extensive mooring facilities and two sailing clubs, and creates a bustling atmosphere with fishing boats and pleasure craft. There are numerous beaches in the area, National Trust sites and a vibrant village which has a good range of small shops for everyday needs, including an excellent fishmonger, with freshly caught fish off the boats, a butcher, delicatessen and several good restaurants. A more comprehensive range of shopping facilities is available in the county town of Newport (13 miles) and the nearby town of Ryde (7 miles). The Fast Cat and Hover Craft, providing high speed passenger links to Portsmouth, is located in Ryde, providing access to the mainland in under 10 minutes.
