A slice of Island History and the chance to become the custodian of a unique Grade II* six-bedroom home. The Old Manor House is one of the earliest recorded buildings in Ventnor, with ancient stone walls and a thatched roof.
For anyone who wants a slice of island history and a home in which to entertain and display art and furnishings, The Old Manor House has the perfect setting. Restful and solid, in a sheltered position just moments from the coastline, beach and town.
Currently divided into two parts, the entire house is available and could be reunited as one.
This substantial home enjoys spacious accommodation with large reception rooms and six bedrooms, the master, en-suite. A large area of level lawn extends to the front, and views of St. Catherine’s church through the trees towards the sea are a lovely outlook. A gated driveway provides plenty of parking.
The town of Ventnor, with its popular beach and esplanade, restaurants and shops, is on your doorstep, yet the secluded position of the Old Manor House provides a tranquil setting. To the back of the house, the landscape rises eventually to the summit of St. Boniface Down, the highest point on the island and offers further shelter to this location.
The Old Manor house is an early C19 recasing of an older cottage or farmhouse as a Gothic “cottage orné”. Features include stone rubble with ashlar quoins, a steep pitch thatched roof. Tall external chimneys with diagonally set pots. The wings to the garden front have gables with pierced scalloped bargeboards and a small canted bay window to the ground floor. 5 windows with bargeboard gabled half dormer to recessed part. Wood casements with French windows on the ground floor. Bargeboard gabled half dormers to rear.
