Property Details

An Art Deco villa that will win your heart with its graceful charm and unique style

Built in the late 1920s, Charleston House on the Isle of Wight is a time capsule perfect for transporting you back to the roaring age of the Charleston, Hollywood glamour and The Great Gatsby.

The Art Deco style is brilliantly captured in the huge stained glass windows, galleried landing and stylishly vintage furnishings. Set upon a cliff top location, the sliding picture windows in all the main living areas and bedrooms allow you to witness all the heart-stirring views over Sandown Bay and out to Culver Cliff every moment of the day from when the sun rises to when the sun sets. Much of the furnishing throughout reflects the Art-Deco period.

For when you want to bring your family and friends together, an elegant, oak-panelled banquet room provides enough space to feed up to 19 with any culinary masterpieces you can create in the fully equipped, high quality, shaker style kitchen. A splendid triple aspect drawing room has doors which open into the sun room and out into the landscaped gardens, an area to sit during the summer and marvel at the sights while dining al-fresco with your loved ones.

From the garden gate you will be just five minutes from the Blue Flag beach that stretches from Sandown to Shanklin, and the tarmac cliff path allows people of all ages to take a stroll. For cycling devotees there is a dedicated cycle shed and cycle access. Of all the charming and traditional seaside resorts, Shanklin definitely sets itself apart with its lustrous long, wide, sandy beach and dramatic sandstone cliffs.

Whether you are young or just young at heart you will never run out of things to do with the local areas being lined with amusements, water sports facilities and the plentiful choice of restaurants.

For those who wish to have a quieter time away, lose yourself in the history and character of Shanklin Old Village where there is always the option of casually strolling through the open green spaces and fantastic parks and gardens.
