IF YOU have always fancied living in the lively sailing town of Cowes, here is your chance.

Cowes really comes alive in the summer, when the social calendar is packed with sailing regattas such as the world-renowned Cowes Week and the historic Round the Island Yacht Race.

It is also the perfect town to choose to live in if you need to commute to the mainland regularly, because it is well-connected with a high-speed passenger ferry, while the car ferry is just a short hop away via the floating bridge.

The large recreational space of Northwood Park is only a short walk away — perfect for the children to go and play football or try out the tennis courts.

Situated in Consort Road at the top of the town, this three/four bedroom home would be ideal for a family and is being offered chain-free.

It is not far from local schools in Cowes and is also close to the bus route for regular connections to Newport and further afield.

It benefits from a rear garden with a pleasant block-paved patio area and a handy garden shed.

There is permit parking available — but there is also potential for the new owners to create an off-road parking area to the rear of the property if preferred — subject to gaining the relevant consent.

The house has spacious rooms and is in a sought-after location within walking distance of Cowes town centre, the many yacht clubs and the seafront.

The rooms are spacious and light, with many period features.

The town centre benefits from supermarkets including Sainsbury’s and M&S, as well as a wide range of independently owned shops and businesses, plus cafes, pubs and restaurants. East Cowes on the other side of the river also benefits from a Waitrose.

There are character features throughout this beautiful property, including high ceilings, period fireplaces and bay windows.

Furthermore, it has potential as a holiday home or a lucrative holiday let.

Letting to sailing crews is particularly popular during Cowes Week and other big regattas and this house is perfectly positioned for this role.

The house has a hallway leading off to the living room/bedroom four, but there is also a good-sized additional sitting area, plus a dining area and a pleasant, well-equipped kitchen.

Upstairs, there is a landing with doors leading off to three good-sized double bedrooms.

There is also a family bathroom and a separate WC.

The house is in good decorative order throughout and the current owners have had a new combi boiler installed this year to run the gas central heating.
