About this Property

St. Lawrence Dene is a grand Victorian Villa with splendid sea and country views. In the leafy mature garden there is a large hot tub in a suntrap terrace; loungers to relax on & enjoy the English country garden. Set by the around island coastal path, close to a secluded smugglers cove, there are spectacular cliff walks to Botanic Gardens and Ventnor beach, as well as walks over down land with stunning scenery through Niton, Blackgang, Chale – in fact footpaths leading all over the Island.

Two splendid Master bedrooms front the house with enormous French doors opening onto balconies overlooking the garden and sea, one with its own sitting room (separate SKY+ including movies and sports), the other can link with a twin bedroom, ideal for families with small children.
