Believed to have been built around 1915, this substantial period home provides extensive light and spacious accommodation which retains an array of original features, ranging from a particularly impressive fireplace in the drawing room to, picture rails, architraves and door furniture. The principal rooms face south over the lawned gardens and towards the golf course. There are UPVC framed double glazed windows throughout whilst the versatile accommodation is currently configured to include a self-contained apartment on the second floor from which there are some wonderful distant sea views. To the front of the property there is extensive parking whilst to the rear is a large lawned south facing garden with mature trees which backs onto the golf course with a useful store. The property extends to approximately half an acre.

Pleasantly located in one of the most sought-after residential roads in Cowes, approximately a mile from the town centre with boutique shops, bars and restaurants, as well as the famous yacht clubs and internationally renowned sailing facilities. The Red Jet high speed passenger ferry to Southampton also operates from the centre of Cowes.
