The property is set a short distance back from the sea front in a quiet, elevated location, with principal accommodation extending over three floors, in addition to which there is a lower ground floor and a third floor roof terrace.

The extensive works carried out to extend the property have included the installation of a modern lift (with access from the ground floor to all floors above including the roof terrace), the complete renewal of electric, plumbing and heating systems; and installation of new double glazed UPVC framed windows throughout, making for extensive and versatile accommodation that makes the most of the wonderful views. There are balconies and terraces from ground floor level upwards culminating in a particularly large roof terrace, providing sun throughout the day.

In addition, there is parking for up to 3 cars to the front of the property and a further vehicular access to the rear provides additional parking and leads to the Coach House, a self-contained unit with integrated garage.

This superb and sought-after location allows easy access to the amenities of Cowes, with the town centre being around a third of a mile along the seafront to a good range of shops and restaurants as well as the high-speed Red Jet service to Southampton. Cowes is world-renowned for its sailing with numerous prestigious yacht clubs and is easily accessible from London. Walks to the west along the seafront lead to Gurnard with further waterside eateries and lovely beaches.
