Property description

Detached split level stone built Georgian lodge located in a prominent position in the desirable village of Niton. The three bedroom accommodation is arranged over two floors and comes with some very interesting history and period features. Built around 200 years ago this former gatehouse sits on an elevated site at the entrance to 'Westcliff', a period home which boasts a prestigious history of former owners and was the subject of one of George Brannon's famous prints. The lodge's original residents were mainly staff employed at Westcliff. There is a large bread oven still at the lodge so it is a fair assumption most of the bread for the main house was baked here. The accommodation briefly comprises three bedrooms; two of which plus one shower room are on the lower ground floor. Living room, dining room, kitchen, conservatory and second shower room are on the entrance level. Outside there is a lovely landscaped garden with workshop/store and a parking area. Some sea views are enjoyed from the house and garden. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the character of this truly unique home.
