A rare opportunity to acquire a penthouse apartment occupying a prime position on The Parade with truly panoramic sea views
Osborne Court, an art deco apartment block situated in a prime location on The Parade in Cowes with superb Solent views. Recently the building has had extensive works to the exterior involving installation of insulation and a programme of improvements to the communal areas is planned. Approached through a communal hallway there is lift access to the 6th floor and stairs to the 8th floor, where the penthouse is located, providing a stunning elevated position with expansive views over The Solent and harbour. It is proposed that the windows on the front elevation of the penthouse are to be replaced shorty with new tinted double glazed, self-cleaning units.
The apartment is within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Cowes and within a short walk of the High Street and Redjet ferry service to Southampton.
