Spacious Period Home With Private Walled Courtyard



Updated: 01-Nov-2016
Apartment in Bonchurch, Ventnor, Isle of Wight, England - Peaceful Location, Easy Walk To Local Bars, Restaurants And Beach

The house has had notable owners and visitors over the past 170 years. Queen Victoria is rumoured to have stayed there and in 1879 Cornelius Nicholson whom was a “self made man”, owned the property. Cornelius was the managing director of the East Indian Railway and was friends with Charles Dickens, Wordsworth and Count Strogonoff. His daughter wrote a book called “A life well-spent”, beautifully written the book which recites attention-grabbing anecdotes of Cornelius’s life. We are offering the ground floor of this period home.
