An impressive, small coastal estate with a stunning principal house, a lodge and two cottages situated in an elevated position with excellent sea views in grounds of approximately 6.5 acres. The property stands in mature, landscaped gardens in one of the finest positions on the Island affording seclusion and outstanding sea views of the English Channel.
The hamlet of Luccombe sits between Shanklin and Bonchurch on the southern coast of the Isle of Wight. The main house is believed to date largely from 1928, though it has origins from the 17th century and it reputedly once formed part of the Fleming Estate. The property affords privacy, outstanding views and it stands in mature, landscaped grounds and was built on the site of a much earlier property on rock of brick and stone with a balcony enjoying spectacular sea views.
The principal accommodation is set out on two floors together with a lower ground floor and an attic storey. The accommodation extends (on the ground floor, lower ground floor and first floors) to approx. 5057 sq ft/464 sq metres, shown on the floor plans. The house has been modernised in recent years with a particularly stunning drawing room with large glazed doors overlooking the Chine and sea beyond.
The property is approached via a picturesque private lane with a driveway leading past The Lodge and through the grounds to the front of the main house. The Lodge and Stable Cottage have separate driveways. A stream flows through the upper garden through a tunnel beneath the house, emerging via a waterfall which cascades into the Chine and down to the beach. Paths descend via a pleasant 'al fresco' dining area/view point through the Chine and once extended down to the shore .
The attractive lodge has period origins with later additions, with its own garden and parking space.
The Stable Cottages were converted in the late 1990s and provide modernised accommodation. The delightful grounds include mature gardens and there is a double garage with room over as well as a castellated folly and a potential paddock to the west of the property.
The lodge and cottages are also let out at present providing an attractive rental income.
SERVICES Private water supply. Private drainage system. Oil fired central heating to the principal house. LPG heating to The Lodge and Stable Cottages.
