Navarino Villa is a handsome and substantial period house, with a self-contained apartment providing an attractive rental income.

Built in 1869, this fine home provides versatile accommodation over three floors and a wealth of original features.

To intensify its appeal, it benefits from wonderful southerly views of the church spire and English Channel, as well as downland views to the rear.

The current owners have undertaken extensive renovation and refurbishment, with works including a new roof, replacement uPVC double-glazed windows to the side and rear, re-wiring and re-plumbing.

Ceilings have been replaced and walls re-plastered and re-decorated throughout.

The original woodwork has been meticulously stripped and many Victorian features have been retained, restored and reinstated, such as stained-glass panels, coving and ceiling roses.

These combine with modern comforts to create a thoroughly desirable home.

The lower-ground floor self-contained apartment has two bedrooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and bathroom. It also has a dedicated garden and has been run as a successful holiday let during the summer months, with a turnover of approximately £15,000 per annum.

There is nothing stopping new owners incorporating all this extra space into the main accommodation if required.

This is vast in itself, with three impressive reception rooms, as well as a snug with an open fireplace.

The attractive kitchen/breakfast room has an extensive range of base and wall cupboards with a one-and-a-half bowl ceramic sink and lots of integral appliances.

These are a fridge/freezer, slimline dishwasher, ceramic hob with extractor over and a double oven.

A large sash window provides beautiful views of St Boniface Down.

The sitting room (or study) is a nicely proportioned room with a cast iron fireplace with pine surround.

Upstairs, you will discover a superb drawing room, with a wide south-facing bay window providing plenty of natural light and wonderful views.

The master bedroom is a spacious double room with southerly sea views.

There are two further double bedrooms and a bathroom with a roll-top bath and separate deluge shower cubicle.

Outside, the attractive rear garden features lawns and a raised terrace to the far end of the garden, which is a lovely south-facing spot forming an alfresco dining and seating area.

There is a driveway and parking.
