Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Windsor House This landmark property is a most attractive and elegant Grade II listed family residence occupying an elevated location in the much sought after old town, enjoying views which extend over the harbour and the Solent. The current Isle of Wight volume of Pevsner's The Buildings of England describes this part of Castle Road as 'one the pleasantest pieces of townscape in Cowes', and references Windsor House as 'the nicest' in the group, praising its exceptional mid-Georgian features: 'the weatherboarding on the main frontage is a rare survival in Cowes.' Constructed with timber panel clad walls this character home is arranged over 3 floors with a versatile layout that incorporates 4 bedrooms. Built in the 1750's, the property boasts an array of interesting period features and many of its windows have exceptional sea views. Recent renovations include modern spot lighting and condensing central heating system.

Windsor House is within easy walking distance of shops, cafes, restaurants and yacht clubs while the high speed Red Jet ferry service to Southampton (22 minutes) is only 300m walk.
