Situated to the western end of Ventnor Park, Glencliff occupies an excellent position providing exceptional southerly coastal views over nearby Steephill Cove. The property is situated adjacent to the former stables and Coach House of Steephill Castle (demolished in the 1950’s) and is accessed via impressive stone gate pillars. There is also a gate leading directly into Ventnor Park, (by permission of the Council). The Park provides an attractive setting with an array of fine mature trees, a bandstand, an outdoor gym overlooking the English Channel and paths leading back towards the town centre. To the south west is Flowers Brook Meadow where streams from two springs from the Downs above join and flow into a small pond and a little further west are Ventnor Botanic Gardens. The town centre with a good range of shops and restaurants is a largely level and attractive walk from Glencliff.

The house was built in the early 1940’s with good-sized principal rooms facing south west providing light accommodation and making the most of the fine sea views. The house retains many original features including an impressive oak panelled hall, parquet flooring (recently refurbished) and stained glass windows. In recent years enhancements have been made including a new conservatory with first floor balcony above and a second floor bedroom suite. With ample parking, a garage, car port, various garden buildings and a lovely south facing garden with seating areas overlooking the coast it provides a great overall package.
