Yarmouth, Isle of Wight

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
Broad Reach was built approximately 23 years ago by the current owners and benefits from immediate access to the slipway and Bouldnor Bay. The property offers a striking mix of a quality bespoke coastal house combined with an 'Alpine' feel. The house has been well maintained to offer the comforts of modern living - with triple glazing throughout, heat recovery & clean air system, a pressurised hot water system and modern fixtures and fittings. Sliding doors have been fitted on the ground floor and there is access out onto the balcony on the first floor allowing for magnificent and uninterrupted sea views across The Solent to the shores of the New Forest National Park.

Port La Salle is just a two-minute drive, or easy flat walk away from the popular and bustling harbour town of Yarmouth. Renowned for its excellent sailing facilities, the town also boasts a good selection of local shops, restaurants and pubs. Located on the Yar Estuary, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with countless and varied walks available through surrounding picturesque countryside and farmland beyond. The town also has a frequent car ferry service connecting to Lymington, with good onward transport links to the rest of the country. The new owner of the property could apply for a floating dock (Tetradock) to be installed on piles, just in front of the house. Others have recently been installed and allow an owner to keep a rib/speed boat or sailing dinghy out of the sea over the summer months.

The property is located just up from the slipway and harbour which allows for direct access into Bouldnor Bay and The Solent. There is the possibility to obtain a Crown Estate Licence for a mooring, which many of the neighbouring houses benefit from. Bouldnor Bay is a magnificent bay offering excellent sailing, windsurfing, fishing, swimming, and kayaking/ paddle boarding etc. Many of the sailing regattas and races take place directly in front of the house allowing plenty of exciting boating activity to watch. There are miles of wonderful coastal footpaths and beaches within a few minutes' walk of the property.

A wonderful 'sunroom' has been added on the north-west corner of the house, which allows for a panoramic sea view.

The garage has an electric up and over door. The main garden is mainly laid to grass and leads down to the harbour.

Stunning views are enjoyed from the garden and there is a substantial raised decking area that is located just outside the sliding doors from the sitting room. To the front (south side) of the house there is ample parking space and the plot does include further land to the south - currently laid to lawn with 'Grasscrete' sections so that this can also be used for car parking.
