  • Bedrooms: 5
Situated in a quiet yet central location within the Old Town and Conservation Area, the house is set back about 150 metres from the waterfront in an elevated position affording excellent views over Cowes Harbour and The Solent. The Parade is a short walk down Bars Hill providing access to Trinity Landing and some of the country's most prestigious yacht clubs, including The Royal Yacht Squadron, The Royal Ocean Racing Club, The Royal London Yacht Club and the Island Sailing Club.

Cowes is world-renowned for its sailing and yachting facilities and benefits from a good range of shops and restaurants. The Red Jet ferry terminal is a short walk away providing regular highspeed (25 mins) passenger ferry services to Southampton, (with onward rail links enabling London Waterloo to be reached in less than 2 hours). To the rear there are views over nearby Northwood Park with tennis courts, bowling green and Northwood House with seasonal entertainment and lawn bar. Cowes Golf Course is within a short walk.

Built in 2000, the property comprised 2 adjoining town houses (5 and 6 Langtry Place) forming the southern half of the terrace of 4. These have been subsequently sensitively combined and extensively recently modernised in 2018 to create a unique property with versatile accommodation of around 3052 sq feet in a prime position. The property has the benefit of a security alarm system, installed and maintained by Wight Fire. There is extensive parking to the front as well as a south and west facing rear garden.
