“There is another attractive selection of properties for investors and first-time buyers, as well as later-stage home occupiers here, on the Island. We anticipate keen interest.”

A 0.29-acre plot of land adjacent Cliff Bank, St Catherine Street, Ventnor, has an estimate of £100,000+ and historically has had planning consent for residential development.

A 3-storey former pub, The Stag at 45 Sandown Road, Lake, is guided freehold at £280,000-300,000.

Rob said:

“It is considered that the former public house may be suitable for conversion to other uses, including potentially residential accommodation, subject to planning permission.

“The upper floor has a recently refurbished four-bedroom house of multiple occupation – HMO – which is producing a very worthwhile income in its own right.”

The HMO currently generates £15,900 per annum, with 1 bedroom empty, Rob said.

Guided freehold at £450,000+ is The New House, The Broadway, Totland Bay.

Rob said:

“The curent owners have brought the existing build, with four bedrooms, to a significant level of completion – new owners have the advantage of deciding on the final fit-out prior to occupation.”

“The house is a short drive from the Needles and Yarmouth, with all of its boating and other amenities, including the car ferry connection to Lymington, whilst Freshwater, with all of its shopping and other amenities, is also close by.”

Chalked for “upgrading and refurbishment”, a semi-detached house at Rowantree, Main Road, Arreton, 3 miles south east of Newport, is guided freehold at £150,000-160,000 and has 2 bedrooms. There is scope for a third bedroom if reconfigured, Rob said.

Freehold, a town centre premises with upper parts for potential development, subject to planning consents, is guided freehold at £180,000-200,000 and is at 104 and 105 St James Square, Newport.

The vacant terraced property sits between Barclays Bank and The Entertainer.

That’s exactly what they should do ….
Makes perfect sense (well to us mere mortals) ….
So many empty shops houses and at least if the council bought them they could be rental (at reasonable cost) or affordable housing for the islanders….

Good luck if you get one. The local NIMBY lot will stop you doing what you want with what you own.

When people own land, what they do with that land affects the wider community, and thenceforth the environment, which we all have to live within, so it affects us all. So people have a perfect right to attempt to protect their environment.
