Is it one large home or two homes in one?

Number 22, St Boniface Cliff Road is one of those properties that will get your mind racing as you decide how to use the amount of space on offer.

There's the potential for an integral one-bedroom annexe, as one side of the downstairs accommodation could easily be portioned off to provide a lounge/diner, a kitchen, wet room with WC and an L-shaped bedroom. Or you can incorporate all this extra space into the family home, giving you two spacious reception rooms downstairs, a utility room separate to the large kitchen/diner and a sixth bedroom, with an ensuite wet room.

With five bedrooms upstairs too, one ensuite and all with their own hand basins, there is also the option of utilising some of the space as guest house accommodation. This delightful property is in the ideal location for hosting visitors, set within a few hundred metres of the cliff path, which leads to the super sandy beaches of Shanklin. There are sea views from the master bedroom, as well as the attractive balcony, with wrought iron railings.

The entrance hall itself gives an immediate feeling of space and packs in original character, with ornate cornicing, picture rails and dado rails. There is quality Karndean wood-effect flooring, which changes to oak flooring in the sitting room. This is a well-proportioned room, approximately 20ft by 14ft, with a box bay window to the front where you get some views of the cliffs at Luccombe. A Living Flame gas fire provides a lovely focal point, with an ornate surround and tiled hearth.

The kitchen/diner features a breakfast bar area, as well as plenty of room for a family dining table. There are French patio doors out to the pretty rear garden. This is courtyard style, while sun worshippers will appreciate the fully enclosed, south-facing front garden, with mature shrubs, lawn and patio area.

This imposing home also has the benefit of parking for two vehicles.
