About this property
Coastal substaintal villa with large grounds and annexe
Bass Rock is a substantial, attractive, Victorian coastal villa which enjoys superb sea views from an elevated position on the South coast of the Island. The property is thought to date from the early 1800’s and local folklore says that the property was built for smugglers, and its position and features would attest to that. The main house has 5 double bedrooms most of which enjoy lovely sea views across the gardens, the master is charming with en-suite and Juliette balcony. A covered veranda spans the width of the ground floor and affords 2 of the 3 reception rooms sea views. The property also offers a one-bedroom self-contained annexe which has access to the garden. Having been loved by the same family for the last 40 years the house is unspoilt with numerous period features to uncover and enhance. The garden is large and well-loved with bespoke areas of planting and growing, a revolving folly affords a delightful place to relax, and paths lead down through the garden where a lawn area gives the perfect space to watch the sun setting behind the lighthouse.
