Strettation Villa
Believed to have been built in 1860, this fine period villa retains a wide array of characterful features but has been sympathetically modernised. Designed to make the most of the wonderful Solent views from all principal rooms there are wide bay windows to the three reception rooms and kitchen. The views include frequent yacht racing and shipping activity in the waters off Cowes in addition to beautiful evening skies. The property is not Listed but is situated in the Conservation Area and benefits from having been partially re-wired, with new consumer unit and meter, with new plumbing and heating systems installed in around 2018, along with a new kitchen and bathrooms. Original timber flooring was refurbished on the

ground floor, whilst numerous period fireplaces remain. The house has a particularly light and spacious feel. An attractive front garden incorporates parking and a large, lawned garden to the rear, from which the sea views can also be enjoyed forms a stunning setting. The property enjoys an enviable, quiet location on a no-through road, yet only a couple of minutes to the seafront with the amenities of the town including world-renowned sailing facilities, various yacht clubs, restaurants, bars and a good range of shops a level walk along the seafront. There is also the Red Jet fast passenger ferry to Southampton with onward train access to London.
