Panorama House is truly a landmark & anyone who knows the house has probably viewed it looking up from THE BEACH at Alum Chine. A WONDERFUL VIEW, a unique location & a rare opportunity to acquire a character house with 7 BEDS, choice of RECEPS & stunning grounds!

The term “Landmark Property” is often used but seldomly is it more apt than here at Panorama House. Tucked away at the end of Sandbourne Road it literally turns the corner of the clifftop overlooking Alum Chine and the beaches below in a remarkable location and one which benefits from a unique viewpoint. It is worth mentioning that one boundary abuts the chine itself meaning the view is unspoiled. Sandbourne Road is the only section of the cliff top where houses have direct cliff access without a road in between. Panorama House has been home to the rich and famous and its guest list includes some illustrious names from the past.

It was constructed in the pre-war era to what was clearly great expense and it changed hands over the proceding years until the current owners acquired it in 2006. They spent a fortune updating and reinventing the house to suit their own needs. The result is a quirky and clearly cherished family home by the sea with a huge amount of character and lots of up to date features.

The built form of the main dwelling extends to over 7,000 square feet including the basement where there is a snooker / games room and a media room in addition to storage and utility areas. On the upper floors there is a total of seven bedrooms and six bathrooms. The children’s bedrooms on the very top floor have very charming hideaway mezzanines which were no doubt very popular with younger members of the family. On the ground floor there is a spectacular reception hall, choice of receptions, a kitchen / diner as well as a gymnasium and in addition to the beautiful decorative finishes everywhere the specification even includes Lutron lighting and Control4 automation.

The grounds take this home to another level and include various viewpoints overlooking the beach below in addition to manicured lawns and landscaped areas on different levels and a huge decked terrace over the site of an outdoor swimming pool, which has the potential to be reinstated. There are numerous outbuildings reflecting the potential to enjoy the benefits of such a spectacular location. Panorama House is a one-off in the truest sense and no doubt new owners will take the opportunity to add their own mark in addition to those who have already enjoyed living here before them.
