A substantial house situated within the Old Town a short walk from the Red Jet ferry.

Glenholme House is a large (3,250 square foot) family home spanning four floors, complete with private garden and off-street parking. Located in an elevated position in ‘Old Town’, Cowes, Glenholme House is just a few minutes walk from the Red Jet Ferry terminal, the yacht clubs, Northwood Park (with tennis courts), the marina and all the local shops, restaurants and bars that Cowes High Street has to offer.
With fantastic entertaining space, catering facilities and a BBQ terrace in the garden, this is a house with flexible accommodation that welcomes large groups of people. It has an established history of generating considerable sums for short lets for the various sailing regattas. Furthermore, planning permission is already in place to allow its next owners to alter the top floor to create a master suite or simply to enhance the harbour views, thus presenting an exceptional investment opportunity.
This is a rare opportunity to own an easy to maintain, ‘lock up and go’, contemporary family home within a stunning Victorian period townhouse, in a prime location. Well-loved by its current owners, Glenholme House is ready to move into. It is well maintained with new double-glazed wooden windows to the front and annual servicing on all plumbing and electrics. This kind of property rarely comes to the market in the heart of Cowes and is a ‘must-see’ opportunity.
