Hose Rhodes Dickson proudly offers a substantial former gentleman’s Victorian residence boasting a wealth of classical and aesthetic features and sat on the outskirts of Godshill in the popular hamlet of Sandford. The property was built in 1872 and originally known as the Sandford Park Estate covering some 119 acres and at the time producing an abundance of crops from the kitchen gardens, orchards and estate land. Over its lifetime the property has been lovingly restored and maintained retaining an abundance of original Victorian features including beautiful marble fireplaces with original Minton tiles, servants bells, impressive ornate coving, ceiling roses and garden room which still houses the grape vine that was planted over 150 years ago and still produces an abundance of grapes annually.
Sandford is set in a rural location and only moments from the town centres of Shanklin, Godshill and Ventnor but sits in the middle of a vast network of countryside walks and cycle paths including Stenbury Downs with breath taking views right across the Island. Shanklin is known for its wealth of local shops, amenities and theatre, including miles of sandy beaches and its own train station with direct ferry links to the mainland with connecting trains to London, the entire journey time taking 2 ½ hours door to door. Near by, Godshill is your truly quintessential English village with an assortment of thatched cottages, tea gardens and eateries.
