A substantial waterfront duplex apartment extending to about 2,196 sq feet with additional roof terrace, balcony and waterfront terrace, in a prime location, with an extensive basement and excellent sea views
Waterfront House The substantial detached building occupies a prime position between the waterfront and the High Street, and in 2009 it was substantially reconfigured and modernised to provide two apartments and a shop unit. Number 76 occupies the first floor and part of the ground floor. The ground floor shop unit together with the Freehold of the building is available as a separate lot to the buyer of the apartment. This provides a versatile arrangement that can provide up to 5 bedrooms, with the potential for the ground floor to be used as separate accommodation. There is a choice of three outdoor terraces, all with fabulous sea views, ranging from the waterfront terrace with direct access to the water, a large first floor balcony accessed from the living room and a large roof terrace.
The building was subject to substantial refurbishment in 2009, resulting in extensive and particularly light modernised accommodation with direct sea views from the principal rooms. Totally new electrical, plumbing and heating systems were installed, new good quality bathrooms and a kitchen were installed, a new roof built, and along with double glazed windows, it results in a low maintenance and efficient property.
The property occupies a sought after waterfront location on the High Street in Cowes just a couple of minutes walk from the Red Jet, providing fast and frequent passenger ferry services to Southampton, and there is easy access to the various yacht clubs, restaurants, shops and sailing facilities.
Accommodation The apartment can either be accessed from the newly refurbished communal entrance shared with the other apartment or via a private entrance into the ground floor accommodation.
