61 Ward Avenue

The property occupies a highly sought-after location being less than a 10 minute walk from the town’s amenities and Red Jet with Northwood Park immediately opposite providing a picturesque setting that includes tennis courts and Northwood House which hosts various events throughout the year. Cowes is world-renowned for its sailing and yachting facilities and benefits from a good range of independent shops, restaurants and bars. The Red Jet ferry terminal provides regular high speed (25 mins) passenger ferry services to Southampton, (with onward rail links enabling London Waterloo to be reached in less than 2 hours).

There are views over Northwood Park towards The Solent from the rooms at the front of the house.

The property was the first house built on Ward Avenue in around 1934 and was designed by Captain Lashmere who was architect for Osborne Court on The Parade in Cowes. Designed with an art deco influence and to make the most of the outlook from the house, some original features remain. The current vendors created the impressive second floor living space from which there are exceptional views, whilst elements of the property would now benefit from modernisation.
