This spacious first-floor apartment is in a prime location within the oldest part of Cowes town with superb sea views from a large roof terrace.

Formerly a theatre, the building was subdivided into two apartments in around 2000 (of which this is the upper one), when new plumbing, heating and electrical systems were installed as well as the kitchen and bathrooms.

The ground floor flat was subsequently sold discreetly to form part of the boutique North House hotel.

This apartment is situated on the first floor with its own private entrance on Sun Hill.

The rooms are of good proportions and with original features and generous ceiling heights resulting in a spacious feel. There are views of the River Medina from a number of the rooms and there is a superb roof terrace which, given the elevated location on Sun Hill, provides panoramic sea views.

The property could provide spacious family accommodation and has proved popular for short-term lettings, including for key sailing events.

Being a former theatre, the rooms have lots of character.

The master bedroom has a view towards Cowes Yacht Haven and an en-suite bathroom, while both the second and third bedrooms have views across the River Medina.

There is also a family bathroom with a bath with mixer tap and shower attachment, wash-basin, bidet and WC.

There is a lovely roof terrace, which has excellent panoramic views across The Solent and the harbour entrance.

It is one of the highest terraces in Cowes and provides a wonderful outdoor dining and seating area.

The apartment has gas-fired central heating and a 125-year leasehold dated from 2015.

Situated within easy reach of the town’s amenities, the apartment is within the Conservation Area of Cowes.

It is close to the fast passenger ferry to Southampton and the nearby car ferry at East Cowes, on the other side of the river.

Cowes has a wide range of shops and restaurants and is particularly famous for sailing, while the county town of Newport is about ten minutes away by car.
