Full description

Charming and spacious period cottage located in the old town of Cowes enjoying both harbour and Eastern Solent views from all floors. 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 Pevsners 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 1750s, the property boasts an array of interesting period features and many of its windows have exceptional sea views.
