PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Built for the former Lord Mayor of Ryde in 1872, Ashton House is a most stunning and imposing three storey 6 bedroom detached Victorian town house situated in the heart of Ryde . It show-cases the most opulent and breath-taking interior design from the moment you step through the impressive feature entrance door; making you instantly feel part of the property’s rich past, steeped in local history and architectural relevance within the town. Typical of the era of its build, this beautiful property retains many original character features such as ornate fireplaces ( all working), high ceilings, picture rails, ceiling roses, deep skirtings, sash windows and wooden panelled doors – all adding to its huge charm and opulence. The property has been extremely well maintained by the current owner, and has a tasteful and sophisticated design scheme throughout. An impressive ornate sweeping staircase and galleried landing also complements its sense of period grandeur and ambience! Being a three-storey property, there are magnificent panoramic Solent views at almost every level, with two large balconies.
The property comprises several reception rooms, open plan kitchen/diner, a triple aspect conservatory with underfloor heating, 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and potential to create a separate self-contained annex on the lower ground floor – Ashton House would make a very sophisticated family home in the heart of a vibrant and bustling town centre!
Ashton House is a short walk from Ryde town centre, whilst the golden award winning sandy beaches of Ryde beach and Appley, and the passenger ferry services to Southsea and Portsmouth, are all within close proximity. The world renowned Ryde School is also very nearby.
