The Colonnades, in Westhill Road, Shanklin is a mighty homethat once formed part of Westhill Manor.

The Colonnades is set over two floors.Each and every room isgenerously proportioned and grand. It would be easy to wax lyrical endlesslyabout this home as it is truly one-of-a-kind. Fantastic period features includethe stone mullioned windows and pillared terrace as well as gloriously high ceilingsand deep bay windows.

The entrance level houses a handsome drawing room with bayson two sides. — one of which opens on to the terrace and the other into stonemullions. There is a sizeable kitchen-diner with limed chestnut-style units andan integrated gas hob, electric oven and dishwasher. This room was made forentertaining.

Completing the entrance level is the cloakroom, galleriedlanding with enough room to accommodate a writing desk and more, plus themaster bedroom. Here are built-in wardrobes, a wide bay overlooking the gardenand a fully tiled en-suite bathroom. It really is stunning.

Descending the stairs to the garden level brings you to alarge hallway with understairs cupboards and a door to the garden.

There are two spacious double bedrooms, one with an en-suiteshower room and the other an en-suite bathroom. There is also a utility room, agames room or gym with spotlights and a door to the pool room. In here you willfind a luxurious raised ‘endless’ pool (you swim against a generated current),as well as an adjacent pump room.

It’s a lot to take in, but there’s still more. TheColonnades has its own tower. On the garden level there is a large storage roomwith stone detailing, opening into a potting area with doors into the garden.

From the front terrace, you can access the self-containedtower annexe. There is a sitting room with a kitchenette in place and mullionedwindows. Stairs lead to the first floor where there is a double bedroom anden-suite shower room.

Continuing up the stairs leads to the piece-de-résistance:the roof terrace, accessed through a clever glazed hatch opening. From here youcan enjoy great views across the Channel and towards Culver cliffs, as well asout to the countryside and Shanklin Cricket Club. It’s a wonderful surprise.

Parking is catered for in the courtyard, which also givesaccess to the double garage. Additional parking is on the upper terrace level.

Outside there is an area of courtyard built around a birchtree, a patio that leads into the private garden with an super-realisticartificial lawn and gravelled paths leading to planted areas.
