About this property

Presented to the market without the burden of an onward chain, this spacious detached four-bedroom residence has a remarkable connection to local history. It was the former residence of the renowned English geologist, John Milne, born in 1850, celebrated as the pioneering figure in the field of Seismology. Milne’s significant contributions to the scientific study of earthquakes and his residence in this house from 1895 until his passing in 1913 make this property of unique historical value. Previously known as ‘Shide Hill House,’ its proximity to Pan Chalk pit allowed Milne to conduct crucial measurements related to earth tension. His final resting place is nearby, and the ‘Milne Trail’ connects the house to his burial site.

This residence offers generous living space with the potential to become a truly magnificent home on the outskirts of Newport. Accomodation comprises a kitchen, dining room, lounge, storage room, and a WC. The first floor has a large landing with doors to four well-proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom, with the main bedroom incorporating a walk-in dressing room.

The property provides off-road parking in front, and additional parking is available on the lane. The house is enveloped by gardens that partially encircle the property, featuring a courtyard and a tiered garden at the front, offering ample potential for landscaping and optimizing the available views.

‘Milne House’ enjoys an elevated position, granting it scenic vistas across the countryside and Newport Town centre. To truly grasp the generous space and potential this property offers, we strongly recommend arranging a viewing.

Located on the outskirts of Newport, in an elevated position along a country lane, the property imparts a semi-rural ambiance while remaining within a short walking distance of Newport Golf Course, the Island’s main cycle track, scenic countryside walks, and Newport town centre, which hosts an array of amenities.
