Cowes, Isle Of Wight


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
This characterful, period building forms the end of a terrace and backs onto the Yacht Haven over which there are good views towards The Solent and Hampshire Coast from the upper floors. The apartment has been run as a successful holiday let in recent years and there is also planning consent to further enhance the accommodation including the creation of both a Juliet balcony at first floor level, as well as a roof terrace at third floor level, from which the views are superb. In recent years rental income for the apartment has been around £20,000 per year whilst the shop unit is let as an investment property at around £10,000 per annum.

The apartment underwent significant renovation in 2007 including significant structural works carried out sensitively to retain much of the original character, although some elements could now do with refreshing.

In all, this provides a rare opportunity to acquire a good sized apartment capable of sleeping 6 to 7 in a prime central position with sea views and unrivalled access to the Yacht Haven, shops, restaurants with the high speed Red Jet ferry crossing to Southampton being a couple of minutes walk away.

The contents and furnishings of the apartment in addition to the existing website are available by separate negotiation. The property should be able to benefit from the lower mixed use stamp duty.
