Built in 1928, this attractive period family house provides light and spacious accommodation, retaining many original features. Aspects of the property have been modernised in recent years including UPVC framed double glazing, cavity wall insulation, upgrading to some of the electrics and installation of a new boiler. It is in good decorative order, with the original features including parquet flooring to much of the ground floor, (with quarry tiled flooring in the kitchen & breakfast room) and a wonderful decorative fireplace and picture rails in the sitting room. There is some particularly fine oak joinery within the house, including an impressive oak staircase. Some aspects of the property would still benefit from modernisation but it has been maintained well.

The principal rooms face south over the largely south facing gardens, with mature tree-lined boundaries making for a private setting. The current owners formerly ran a coach business from the property so there is excellent, extensive parking as well as a substantial workshop, ideal for storage of numerous cars and boats.

The property occupies an extremely convenient position on the fringe of Cowes, with the amenities of the town and the high-speed passenger ferry to Southampton being a few minutes' drive away.
