IF YOUR mission for 2019 is to find your dream home, it could be a lot easier than you think. This attractive four-storey home is located in Newport Road, Cowes and will put your dreams within reach — without the nightmare addition of a chain.

Number 32a has it all from the outside — handsome kerb appeal, the added bonus of off-road parking for two cars (something akin to gold dust this close to Cowes town centre) and a location that’s within easy walking distance of the high-speed link to the mainland, as well as all the shops, bars, restaurants and the marina. Exterior looks don’t deceive either, as this property more than lives up to expectations once you step inside.

Well presented and neutrally decorated throughout, this modern home is as good as new and ready to be moved into.

The sociable kitchen dining area is a bright room with lots of natural light. It occupies the majority of the lower ground floor and is a generous 24ft, with underfloor heating and bi-fold doors out to the patio and low-maintenance garden.

There are plenty of built-in kitchen appliances and an attractive range of light coloured, high-gloss units.

This area has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate a breakfast bar.

The integral hob is also cleverly placed, facing the dining room, so the cook can be included in the conversation at the table. A separate utility area completes the accommodation on this floor.

The lounge, on the ground floor, is another great space for entertaining guests, especially in the summer months when you can make use of the bi-fold doors out to the large, decked balcony, with its stunning views down the River Medina, as well as over the main garden below. There is room for patio furniture on the balcony, as well as a barbecue.

Also on this level is a shower room with WC, a further WC and a front-facing office or fourth bedroom.

Those guilty of treating their homes like a hotel will appreciate the two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor, which are beautifully appointed.

To add to the feeling of luxury, the master bedroom features double doors onto a small balcony, which again has far-reaching views down the river and across to East Cowes.

The en-suite to this room features a contemporary bath, WC and handbasin.

The top floor gives you yet another large double bedroom, with a stylish Juliette balcony overlooking the front aspect.
