ARE you looking for your own corner of paradise? This quiet spot in Bonchurch could spell the end of your quest.
Tucked away within a private part-walled garden is Westfield House, a huge individually designed, detached family home, set in this beautiful and desirable village.
As with most properties in the area, it benefits from delightful views stretching out over the English Channel and this wide panoramic vista can be enjoyed from nearly every room in the house. Or look up in the northerly direction and spot goats on the downs.
A huge 60ft Everest glass-lined balcony stretches the entire length of the house, giving the occupants plenty of options when it comes to lazing out in the sunshine.
The rear garden offers the same delightful conundrum — where best to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon tea? The lawn? The decking? The patio? Or seated in one of the rooms with the sliding doors open?
It is a house that enjoys a fabulous location, with the beach just a short stroll away at the end of the road and Ventnor town centre and all its amenities not far by car or on foot.
The garden wraps around the property and there is space for up to five cars on the driveway.
Every room is on a grand scale, starting with the entrance lobby. Ample storage can be found throughout the house, including a cloakroom cupboard usefully situated opposite the front door.
The kitchen is vast and would naturally serve as the hub of the home, perfect for a large family or for social gatherings. There are several wall and base units, granite worktops and a Rangemaster oven, plus a kitchen sink overlooking the fabulous view.
Walk from the kitchen straight into the dining room and open-plan lounge area, all with doors out to the garden. The lounge is 27ft long — it is a great house for entertaining. Also downstairs is a study and a separate WC.
A self-contained annexe with its own entrance, off the lobby, would bring in some useful extra money, or offers space for grandparents or grown-up children. It has a lounge, with a little garden area off, a kitchen, with built-in appliances, a bedroom and a large bathroom with corner bath.
On the first floor, the main house has five double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite, again leading to the possibility of extra income, subject to the necessary conditions. The house is full of potential.
The bedrooms are all a good size, most leading onto the fabulous balcony and the master suite is the size of a small apartment.
