A rare opportunity to buy a detached house with water frontage and off-road parking in the heart of Cowes.
7 Birmingham Road Occupying a prime position on the River Medina, within the internationally renowned sailing centre of Cowes, 7 Birmingham Road was reconfigured in 2002 and has been largely modernised in recent years. Most windows are now in uPVC double glazed frames and a high pressure hot water system and a new kitchen were installed recently.
The property is tucked away and situated off the road with access via the Yacht Haven entrance. The waterfront position provides superb views over the harbour entrance and Solent beyond and the opportunity for mooring facilities, subject to the necessary consent.
Cowes is world renowned for sailing with the principal yacht clubs and marinas being a short walk from the property, as are a good range of shops and restaurants. The high speed Red Jet ferry service to Southampton takes about 22 minutes and is about 150 metres walk from the property.
