Available on the open market for the first time in 50 years, The Shieling is a unique period home filled with characterful features, including high ceilings, parquet floors, hand carved timber banisters, doors and ornate fireplaces. Care has been taken to maintain the landmark coastal property with the attractive elevations recently having had the tiles replaced at first floor level and on the roof. The desirable positioning on a tucked away road with direct access to the beach is glorious, where gardens extend to offer an elevated view over the beach and out to the sea. All principal rooms enjoy sea views and the large and well-proportioned rooms and layout provide a particularly comfortable family home.

Sandown Bay and surrounding areas are renowned for their long stretching sandy beaches where there is plenty to see and do. The property is situated on a small road which leads directly to the beach and promenade and within walking distance to the main town center with amenities, restaurants, and cafes as well as beautiful coastal walks to Yaverland and Shanklin. Sandown beach is arguably one of the Isle of Wight’s best beaches, providing a long stretch of sand that is great for children and families. Sandown train station is a short walk away, providing links through to Ryde and access to passenger ferry services to Portsmouth where there are connecting trains to London Waterloo. Fast passenger ferry services also operate between Cowes and Southampton with links to varying London stations. Both entire journey times take an estimated 2.5hrs door to door.

Outside
The charm and excellent care and presentation of the house extend to its grounds, where relatively low-maintenance gardens with level lawned gardens wrap around on three sides of the house. There is a large block paved driveway beyond twin five bar gates in front of an integral garage with up and over door. There is access on both sides of the house to stunning private and very sunny gardens, which frame a glorious panoramic view. A timber clad two storey observatory tower, known as the ‘Wee Hoose’ is perched to one side providing a useful workshop/artist studio/office with loft floor, both achieving far reaching sea views. There is plenty of storage provided by log stores off the front lawn and a lean-to to one side of the garage. There is also a summer house nestled in the rear of the garden, achieving a sunny southerly aspect. Below the flag pole is a lower path along the top of the cliff wall and the coastal path is found directly outside the house.
