The White Villa sits high above the beach at Shanklin with direct access onto the exclusive East Cliff Walk. From this highly desirable location the house enjoys uninterrupted sea and coast views and towards Brighton on a clear day. Very few properties have this stunning outlook and the owners of The White Villa have designed their home to really maxmise this aspect. There is a first floor sun terrace which runs the full width of the property and a conservatory style reception room below which also spans the width of the house with its wall of huge windows. The property is Victorian and retains some lovely original features whilst having been brought right up to date to provide a contemporary & luxurious lifestyle.
It is just a 10 minute walk to the town centre and the railway station. Shanklin Theatre and many restaurants are a similar distance away. Shanklin Bay has sailing, deep sea fishing and rowing clubs and probably the best children and adult activities on the island.
