Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A replacement single storey dwelling to the original period residence called Moray House this large home occupies a prime position within formal walled gardens and superb sea views. On the corner of Spencer Road and West Street, which are particularly sought after among buyers and with excellent proximity to Ryde School, the beach and commuter transport links to the mainland Moray House is ideally situated. Boasting a range of well-proportioned accommodation in addition to a large open plan living space taking in the views the property is particularly low maintenance and has been well looked after however there is also scope for modernisation. There is also significant potential for further development of the current property or making use of the extensive basement below to enhance the site and produce a premium family home (subject to the necessary planning consents and building regulations).

Situated on the corner of the sought after West Street and Spencer Road Moray House benefits from being located in an attractive position, just a short walk from the beach and within a couple of minutes' walk of a gated access to Ryde School, off Spencer Road. The amenities of the town including a range of shops and restaurants, together with high-speed ferry services are all within easy walking distance.
