Victoria House is a spectacular and truly unique Art Deco style house, with a diverse and versatile range of outbuildings, set in an elevated, private position offering 360-degree views. Surrounded by landscaped gardens of approximately 2.5 acres, the property is approached via a private driveway from a no-through road and can also be accessed by air with unrestricted helicopter flying rights.
The main house has been adapted and modernised to take advantage of its spectacular south facing views and offers spacious and adaptable accommodation over two floors as well as a self-contained annexe. The building contains many architectural features befitting its style including circular windows, parquet floors and a stunning decked terrace and balcony.
In addition, the property has a significant outbuilding with a self-contained two bedroomed guest apartment which enjoys the delightful views and would be perfect for a family member or holiday apartment.
The outbuilding also provides a variety of rooms ideal for a workshop and storage as well as excellent garaging. To the southern end of the outbuilding there is also a large space which, most recently, has been used as a helicopter hangar.
The private driveway is accessed via electric gates and sweeps through the gardens, flanked by large areas of level lawn and mature palm trees, leading to a generous parking and turning area to the side of the main house.
The gardens have been designed and laid out to take advantage of the property's dramatic location and offer variety and colour throughout the year. Large areas of level lawn are interspersed with ornamental gardens and terraces. There is a walled and sheltered kitchen garden with a variety of raised beds, a summerhouse and potting shed.
Within the grounds, old cottage walls form part of a sensory garden but could offer further potential, subject to the necessary consents.
The property also benefits from solar PV panels to contribute to the daily running costs of the property.
