Set back from the popular Gurnard Village Green and waterfront is a 3 bedroom house beautifully presented with excellent sea views.
Cliff Cottage A detached house sits in an elevated position some 150 metres back from the waterfront and benefits from a recent refurbishment with a stylish finish including open-plan kitchen, breakfast, dining room, 2 further reception rooms and 3 generous double bedrooms as well as pleasant gardens front and rear. The cottage was built in the early 1800’s by the manager of a brick and clay foundry then based in the woods behind and is constructed of brick and finished with render beneath a tiled roof. A full renovation in 2012 included a new kitchen, bathroom, wiring and central heating and there is to extend the property. The property was previously utilised as a holiday let and achieved a gross annual return of £28,000 in 2014.
The property is situated in the sought after location of Gurnard Village, with the popular Gurnard Sailing Club, the beachside Little Gloster Restaurant and Watersedge Café, a pub and village stores. Cowes is within 2 miles providing a good range of shops, pubs, and restaurants as well as the world renowned sailing facilities and frequent high speed ferry services to Southampton taking approximately 22 minutes.
Entrance Steps lead to a glazed porch with tiled floor.
Kitchen Well-appointed kitchen with a full range of wooden fronted storage units under granite tops which incorporate a 5 ring gas hob with extractor hood over and cooker oven, microwave and grill, space and plumbing for a fridge freezer and a breakfast bar. There is a butler sink with mixer tap over from where views to The Solent can be enjoyed.
Dining Room Particularly bright space with dual aspect windows and a sea view.
Family Bathroom Simple and contemporary finish with a bath and shower over, vanity unit wash basin, heated towel rail and WC.

Sitting Room Feature open fireplace with red brick surround and hearth. High ceilings, dado rails and views of the garden to side and rear.
First Floor The first floor is bright, spacious and with three well-proportioned double bedrooms, 2 of which overlook the rear gardens, with the principle bedroom incorporating an en suite cloak room and enjoying far-reaching views over Gurnard Green across The Solent to Southampton Water.
Outside The property is accessed through twin 5 bar gates and there is a block paved driveway with ample parking and garage with up and over door and tiled roof. There are both front and rear gardens which are largely laid to lawn. The rear garden surrounds a generous size terrace, perfect for alfresco dining. The gardens are enclosed by mature hedging with well-tended pretty borders including apple trees, and the added bonus of a secret garden can be found through a subtle opening in the hedgerow where there is a further decked area and timber built summer house. The front garden benefits from views of Gurnard green and The Solent beyond. Two pedestrian gates provide access to Shore Road and Winding Way and there is a further garden shed, greenhouse and raised herb and vegetable bed to the side of the property.
