Highlands takes its name from the imposing Victorian residence that stood on the cliff top site for over 100 years. Originally built for the Lord Mayor of London, Sir James Thomson Ritchie, and subsequently used by Reverend William Page Roberts, Bishop of Salisbury, for his final years, it was later owned by the McAuslane family, who turned it into a well known hotel. After its closure, it was then used by Upper Chine School for its final years. After being left for a decade, the current Highlands was then constructed, a grand and impressive mock Georgian manor house that lived up to its predecessor in terms of scale and views across Shanklin. However, it was never finished and derelict, open to the elements, for a decade. Now, after an extensive refurbishment and conversion, it is now restored into 5 spacious, luxurious apartments. Each of the apartments offer their own quirks and special features, from the penthouse’s unique roof top conservatory and balcony with its fantastic views to the annexe’s duplex apartment, the property is spread across four levels from the garden to the penthouse with annexe to side. The property benefits from spectacular panoramic sea, town and countryside views around the building, going across to Sandown Bay, Shanklin town and the Downs towards Ventnor. All of the apartments benefit from oak furniture and leather sofas, oak floored living areas with fitted kitchens with granite worktops and all your key appliances, 32″ LED TV with Freesat and DVD and free wifi. Communal gardens are available for all apartments to enjoy with seating available alongside off road parking and cycle parking bays. For apartment 5, the property is a garden floor apartment accessed via own entrance and direct access to communal garden. It has king with ensuite and twin bedrooms, as well as a bathroom and open plan lounge/dining/kitchen. Apartments 1, 2, 3 and 4 are also available to book individually or in any combination for larger groups. The property is found on the coastal path between Shanklin and Sandown and just down the road from National Trust land and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is also a few minutes walk from the picturesque Old Village and its thatched cottages, plus shops, pubs, restaurants and the main town, as well as the cliff top, Esplanade and Shanklin’s beaches.
“דירה מודרנית נקייה, מוארת ורעננה, אידיאלית לשני זוגות או משפחה. מן המרתף לא הייתה אפשרות לדבר עליה, אך הדבר משקף את המחיר ובסיס חג מושלם. קרוב מאוד לכפר שנקלין. בהחלט היינו נשארים שוב. תה, קפה, חלב ועוגיות בעת ההגעה, תקשורת מבריקה. מיטות ושירותים נוחים כל אחד מהם יתרון.”
