About the property

House in Ventnor, Isle of Wight, England - Perfect Location Less Than 5 Minutes Walk To The Town Centre And Beach

Blue Downs-View is a smart Victorian townhouse less than 5 minutes walk from Ventnor 's blue flag beach and spectacular coastline. The property is modern and well equipped and has wi fi and Sky television. Downstairs there is a lounge/diner with seating for 6 and a separate kitchen/breakfast room. Modern kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge freezer and television. Three tastefully decorated bedrooms. The main bedroom has a three piece en-suite shower room. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower. Property has lovely views of the Ventnor Downs to the front and partial sea views from the rear. Decor throughout is light and neutral. Garage available for an average sized family saloon. There is a small sunny but private courtyard garden to the rear of the property with patio furniture and bar-b-que. The town centre is about a minutes walk away. Ventnor is a surprisingly little known jewel on England's coastline with smart restaurants and bars many with locally caught seafood as a speciality, beautiful crescent shaped beach overlooked by smart villas and houses and stunning coastal walks.

About Louise Hurd

Lousie and I come from professional backgrounds ( teacher and criminal barrister) respectively. We have for the last 10 years ran our own successful letting and estate agency

Louise Hurd purchased this house in 2006

Why Louise Hurd chose Isle of Wight

We loved the property's proximity to the town centre and the beach. The property itself appealed to us because of the blend of its character a blend of Victorian architecture (with high ceilings and bay windows) and modernity. Lovely views of the Ventnor downs and the town from the front and side.

What makes this house unique

Everything is on your doorstep - beach, shops, pubs , restaurants the property also benefits from a garage but there is also plenty of cheap and safe municipal parking.

Great property which was the perfect size for our family of 6. Fabulous location too being just off Ventnor high street! Owner very helpful and answered all our queries promptly. Only negative was that we learnt AFTER booking that we were expected to leave the property in a 'clean' state' or face having money deducted from our deposit!! Added a bit of stress to our final day..... shouldn't have to clean on holiday!!

Charming house in great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in September and loved that we could each have our own bedroom. The villa is within minutes of shops and eating places. On a bus route if you don't want to bring the car.

Well decorated and very light.

The curtains were annoying as many of the hooks had jumped out of the rings making them difficult to shut but that was the only minor annoyance.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property.
