ROBIN HILL HOUSE A substantial 5 bedroom detached house within a short gentle walk of Seaview village, the prestigious Seaview yacht club and surrounding beaches.
Built in the 1930's as a grand villa, Robin Hill House has recently had a brand new roof, wiring and plumbing as part of a full and extensive refit throughout during the total refurbishment of the property.
Many of the striking internal 'features' are from historic sailing architectural salvage specialists and wood formally from the Victorian Ryde Pier has been up cycled as design detail. Arranged over 3 floors and in excess of 2500sq feet the property allows extremely flexible accommodation on all floors. Currently the top floor has been left open plan but could easily be partitioned off to form two separate double bedrooms if required, whilst retaining not one but two snugs with far reaching views.
Occupying a huge plot with the added hidden gem in the rear garden...a delightful wooden built summer house with wrap around balcony complete with entertaining space and outside cooking area, fully insulated with a bespoke shingle finish, power, flat roof and sea views.
Beyond that is a large lawned garden and chalet with planning permission to extend to form a 3 bedroom bungalow with the benefit of its own driveway and parking already in situ.
A pair of large gates provide secure privacy where a long drive leads to the front of the house and ample parking area; NB: planning permission exists to build a garage.
We strongly recommend early viewing to appreciate this unique property to fully understand it's size and true potential.
GROUND FLOOR The front door opens to a large entrance hall featuring 2 reclaimed antique ship masts. The accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises of 2/3 reception rooms, 3 shower rooms, family kitchen, large utility and double bedroom (ensuite) with side access to the terrace. Both front rooms (kitchen & bedroom) have far reaching Solent views while all rear rooms have direct access to the garden and sun trap terrace.
FIRST FLOOR The original staircase leads up to a large landing area which is currently laid out as a lovely 'quiet' area with fantastic Solent views and access to the spacious balcony. A vast dual aspect master bedroom suite occupies most of this floor, with large bedroom (including a bath with a view!) huge dressing room and stunning ensuite.
Further rooms include a double guest bedroom and large luxury family bathroom.
SECOND FLOOR The second floor is currently left open plan to be divided to suit your requirements. The snug and the nook are two great little areas to hide away in and take advantage of the super views. Multiple velux windows to all aspects let in a good deal of natural light. The entire roof space is fully insulated using double layer, counter batten, superquilt, multi foil, thermal insulation allowing for maximum use of the space without compromise on insulation.
OUTSIDE FRONT Robin Hill House is approached via its own driveway with twin galvanised metal gates which lead to a generous parking area for several cars. Planning consent has been given for the addition of a single garage to the front of the property.
OUTSIDE REAR All of the rear facing rooms have access to the south facing sunny terrace, ideal for outdoors entertaining. The borders are very well stocked with mature plants and shrubs with steps leading up the garden to the summer house and large lawned garden beyond.
SUMMER HOUSE The latest addition to Robin Hill is the rather fabulous wooden summer house, much of which was built from former Ryde pier reclaimed timbers. The summer house has a wrap around balcony, outside dining/kitchen area as well as Solent views. It has a bespoke shingle finish with flat roof and was fully insulted with mains power.
This space would also make the most stunning home office, yoga studio or artists retreat.
REAR GARDEN/BUILDING PLOT Beyond the large rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn, sits a generous chalet with planning permission to extend the existing building to create a larger 2/3 bedroom bungalow with open plan kitchen/sitting and dining room. The bungalow also has Solent views! The plot has rear gated access via a new galvanised ramp and steps to a footpath which leads to the beach walks of Seagrove bay and Priory bay. There's separate vehicular access drive onto Seaview lane that services the top plot.
