Property description

A very attractive, unique and elegant Regency residence standing in large secluded gardens in a prime location situated in the heart of the village overlooking the church and the village green. The Grade II Listed home has an interesting history and was once the home of the famous actor and novelist, David Niven, whose mother added the amusingly named 'sin wing' at the rear of the house with two bedrooms and a bathroom allowing her teenaged boys access late at night without disturbing the rest of the household. Over the past 35 years the present owners have occupied the property initially as a second home and these days as a main residence.

Arranged over two floors and offering deceptively spacious accommodation including a large L-shaped sitting room, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a delightful garden room leading to a paved terrace and rear gardens.

Bembridge is one of the Island's most sought-after locations having retained much of its original charm and character and offering a wide range of amenities. Its excellent harbour with marina, mooring facilities and two sailing clubs make it popular with yachtsmen. The village has a superb range of local shops including a butcher, florist, bakery, delicatessen, fishmonger, farm produce shop, cafes and restaurants.
