18 Wilton Park Road, Shanklin, I.W PO37 7BT
Property SummaryLocated close to the centre of Shanklin is this beautiful Detached Victorian House which has been well looked after by its’ present owner. The property is 5 minutes walk from the railway station and the main shops and facilities offered by the town, whilst the main access road leading to the beach, esplanade and cliff top walks is also close by. In the past the spacious accommodation has been used as a small bed and breakfast and as such, could be done so again, subject to regulations.
The flexible accommodation would be suitable as a large, family home or perhaps even be adapted to provide a self contained annexe for an elderly relative or independent teenager. Currently, on the ground floor, the home is arranged to provide a sitting room, a large family lounge and dining room, a large kitchen, a conservatory, utility room and a downstairs bedroom with en-suite facilities. On the first floor there are 4 further bedrooms, 1 of which have en-suites. There is also a modern family bathroom/WC.
Warmed by gas central heating, this large home is very well presented and decorated and it benefits from UPVC double glazed windows and interesting features such as coving, a handsome and original staircase, and a beautiful front door with a stained glass leaded light window. Other benefits to the property include off road parking for up to 4 cars, a very large, former chalet in the garden which is block built and in need of updating, which could be used to provide a home office, gym or workshop.
