This Victorian home right on the coast has several surprises up its sleeve. Recently renovated, it's a listed building bursting with character and quirky architectural features – like the crenellated facade and the Gothic windows – but it's been brought bang up to date with contemporary interiors and every mod con. The living space is big and bright, with plenty of seating for larger groups, and there's a dining table that will comfortably seat ten. When you've all unpacked and made yourselves at home, you can head to the games room for a pool tournament in front of the 1970s jukebox, or stream a movie in the comfy cinema room. And that’s just indoors. The outdoor space has been designed to make the most of the great Isle of Wight climate, with a barbecue and dining spot, a lounge area, a superb little garden pod for the kids to play in with a TV and games, and a fire pit. Best of all, the home is just a stroll away from the seafront with its beach, mini-golf, sailing, swimming pool, trampolines and everything else associated with a Great British seaside break. Venture further by car, bus or bike and you’re soon in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or riding a steam railway, visiting a Roman villa or a stately home.
