Castle End

This striking contemporary home has been well designed to make the most of the great southerly sea views from all living rooms and bedrooms, as well as a large balcony and south facing garden. A combination of spacious rooms, extensive glazing and vaulted ceilings to the first floor makes for an exceptionally light home. Completed around 2017 the property has been substantially extended and completely modernised to create a beautiful family home. There are double glazed windows and high levels of insulation making for a highly efficient home which also features a rainwater harvesting system. There is underfloor heating throughout whilst all living rooms and bedrooms have limed oak flooring. Good quality bathrooms have been installed in addition to plenty of built in wardrobe cupboards. There is a modern garage building providing a workshop and gym and a first floor room, with potential for creating an annex (subject to achieving the necessary planning consents).

The south facing garden includes various terraces from which the views can be enjoyed and a heated swimming pool.

Situated in an enviable position on the western fringe of Ventnor, just behind Steephill Cove, elevated to overlook the cricket ground and Botanic Gardens, the property enjoys great sea views. Within a short walk, (less than 400m) is Steephill Cove, and there is also access to the surrounding stunning coastal path leading to further bays and coves. The area benefits from an excellent microclimate, the spectacular Botanic Gardens are just to the west whilst Ventnor itself has a good range of shops, bars and restaurants, and popular fish market.
