Full description

What an opportunity! The chance to acquire this substantial town centre property is a bit of a rare one - with 6 bedrooms and 2 receptions as well as a commercial element with the shop front. It also has a long garden and garage with parking, as well as fabulous Solent views. EPC F-24

I love the feel and flexibility of this wonderful home, which has been lived in and loved for over 60 years by the same family. Positioned in the centre of the vibrant Cowes town, opposite the Corinthian Yacht Club, the home is wonderfully placed for all the local amenities and has a prime spot to take advantage of the magnificent views of the harbour and the Solent. The size of the house is so surprising, as it goes back a long way and extends over three floors, creating six double bedrooms and two sitting rooms, as well as a kitchen; breakfast room and a cosy snug/bedroom on the ground floor. In addition, the property has a shop frontage, which opens up the possibility of a super commercial premises on the ground floor, with the large residential accommodation above it. As if this were not enticing enough - there is the additional bonus of side access to a large rear garden, which extends to back on to Westhill Road, where there is gated access to the parking and large garage. Although in need of some upgrading and modernising, the home is warm and welcoming, with hugely appealing and exciting potential, in a fabulous central location.
