A CLIFF-TOP home at Shanklin really earns its name, The View, with a fabulous sea outlook taking in Culver’s white cliffs and the mainland visible on clear days.

This wonderful panorama can be seen from upstairs at the detached home in Sandown Road, which has other bonuses, including a lovely light and airy interior, with spacious living areas and Thirties character.

Standing on a large plot and with its most impressive aspect at the rear facing the cliff path between Sandown and Shanklin, The View has been smartly refurbished by its owners.

They love watching colourful sunrises over the water as well as the ever-changing skies, sea and passing shipping and will also miss being minutes from the beach and having a large garden and big rooms.

Works have included rebuilding a rear sunroom and repairing a covered balcony with glorious English Channel views reached from the largest of the three double bedrooms.

Harking back to the origins of this superb family home are original doors with decorative architrave, a sturdy staircase and several interior leaded light and decorative windows.

It has a deep frontage, with parking for several cars next to a deep detached garage, with an electrically operated door, light and power and a lawn with planted borders.

In the large back garden is a wide paved terrace and lawn, with a gate to the cliff path.

Beyond the good-sized entrance porch is an entrance lobby leading to a rear and side-facing office.

The original front door leads to an L-shaped hallway with handsome wooden-style flooring, stairs to the first floor and doors to the dining room, breakfast room and lounge.

A large rear bay window makes the 23ft long lounge bright and its focal point is an open fireplace with slate surround.

Through an original door is the tile-floored sunroom, which has rear doors, with side panels to a wide paved terrace in the garden.

This room has interior windows and a door to the well proportioned dining room, with a side window.

Overlooking the front garden is the breakfast room with a fireplace alcove, built-in cupboards and doors to the kitchen and a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and dryer and a WC off.

Along with wooden units, the front-facing kitchen has a walk-in larder, built-in ceramic hob, extractor and double electric oven and integrated fridge.

Upstairs, very spacious bedroom one has two side windows and a huge rear window framing wonderful views of the sea and Culver’s down and cliffs.

This and next door bedroom two, also with gorgeous views have access to the sea-facing balcony.

Bedroom three is front-facing and also upstairs is a bathroom and a separate WC.
