THE potential is as extensive as the sea views and far-reaching outlook to countryside at a cliff-top home, with glorious large gardens.
Not only is the indoor space at detached Cliff Edge, in Cliff Road, at Lake, flexible but outbuildings could be used in a number of ways and possibly accommodation, subject to permission.
Superbly situated, with access to the beach close by and the clifftop walk between Sandown and Shanklin on the doorstep, this light, spacious early Eighties home needs some modernisation but offers huge scope.
It could comfortably house two families and perhaps an elderly relative as one of the three/four-bedrooms is downstairs, next to a bathroom.
As well as an upstairs lounge leading to a balcony looking over the bay, there is a downstairs sitting room too.
Ripe for conversion, subject to planning permission, is a big integral double garage, with plumbing for a washing machine, storage units and a rear door and window.
On the paved patio stretching across the rear is a brick chalet, with power, light and a WC, with shower, though not currently working.
This and a substantial brick workshop, with adjoining store and a WC, could be a studio, hobby room, man cave or overspill space.
Many trees and shrubs, including eucalyptus, apple, rowan and Scots pine, feature in the pretty well tended lawned back gardens with a pond.
Also delightful, the walled front coastal style gardens were professionally designed and border parking space for around four cars.
The wide hallway, beyond an enclosed front porch, has staged stairs to the first floor, a door to the garage and an inner hall off.
Open views over the back garden to countryside and woods can be seen from the long sitting room, with rear patio doors, and the dining room.
An archway links the dining room to the kitchen with wooden units and an extractor over space for a cooker.
Also downstairs is a front-facing double bedroom and a bathroom, with a shower, bath, WC and handbasin.
On one side of the upstairs landing, lit by a rear window and with a WC off, is the capacious lounge, with a stone fireplace with gas fire. Natural light streams into this room through wide rear windows with views to Sandown Airport, countryside and woodland and doors, with side panels, framing a broad sea vista, which can also be enjoyed from the adjoining 17ft wide balcony.
An inner hallway leads to the rest of the first floor, including the large dining room which shares a similar superb rear view as that from a study/bedroom off.
The best sea view, taking in Luccombe and beaches, is from the master bedroom, with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with suite including a bath and shower.
A beautiful side view can be seen from a further bedroom.
