  • Bedrooms: 3
32a Sun Hill

Formally a theatre, the building was subdivided into two apartments in around 2000 (of which 32a is the upper one), when new plumbing, heating and electrical systems were installed, as well as the kitchen and bathrooms. The ground floor flat was subsequently sold discreetly to form part of the boutique North House hotel.

32a is situated on the first floor with its own private entrance on Sun Hill opening to a wide staircase. The rooms are of good proportions and with original features and generous ceiling heights resulting in a spacious feel. There are views of the River Medina from a number of the rooms and there is a superb roof terrace which, given the elevated location on Sun Hill provides panoramic sea views.

The property could provide spacious family accommodation and has proved popular for short term lettings including for key sailing events. Within easy reach of the town's amenities the apartment is within the Conservation Area of Cowes. Internationally renowned for sailing, Cowes has numerous yacht clubs and associated facilities for water based activity in addition to a good range of shops. Being a major Island gateway, there is a fast passenger ferry to Southampton taking about 23 minutes and a car ferry from East Cowes also to Southampton taking about 55 minutes. The island itself has areas of unspoilt countryside and coastline where a wide variety of recreational pursuits can be enjoyed.

Double doors open to a wide staircase leading to the first floor.
