This spacious apartment is one of just two apartments in this imposing detached property formerly part of the military infirmary complex that served the local coastal Solent protection Forts/Batterys in Victorian times. The property still retains some of its original features including tall ceilings, some original paneled doors, narrow strip pine flooring to parts, a decorative tiled entrance lobby floor and rounded corners to the original internal plasterwork. The accommodation comprises a generous sitting room leading through to a more recently constructed conservatory, which in turn leads out to its own area of private garden. In addition, there is a kitchen, spacious dining room/bedroom, as well as two further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room. A bathroom completes the accommodation. The windows have been replaced with sympathetic modern double glazed versions and a modern gas central heating system provides heating. Outside, there is off road parking to the front and private area of garden to one side which has been thoughtfully landscaped with a lower maintenance in mind, making this apartment ideally suited as a lock-up and leave.

LOCATION

The property is within a mile of the shops, services and amenities in Freshwater centre and the popular sandy beach in Colwell Bay with its renowned coastal restaurant, The Hut. Local footpaths and bridleways provide access to miles of coastal and country walks including Golden Hill Country Park, where you can enjoy the far reaching scenery. There are good ferry links to the mainland a few miles away in the historic harbour town of Yarmouth with its excellent sailing facilities and range of pubs and restaurants.
