Solent Lodge

Solent Lodge is believed to have been built in around 1870 and is listed, Grade II. Attached to the rear, the house benefits from sea views from wide bay windows from all 3 reception rooms and 4 double bedrooms. The accommodation has a light feel and an array of characterful period features but would benefit from modernisation. There is a driveway providing parking for 3 cars in addition to a garage and an attractive garden to the front of the property with terraces overlooking the sea. The unrivalled grandstand views of The Solent take in racing from the nearby start line as well as ocean going liners accessing Southampton waters.

The house is situated in a particularly sought after location on Queens Road, where the panoramic views combine with the house being a short walk from the town centre of Cowes as well as the principal yacht clubs. World renowned for its sailing activities, there are a good range of shops and restaurants as well as a high speed ferry service to Southampton (taking approximately 20 minutes).
