WATERFRONT HOUSE occupies a sought after location on Cowes waterfront and offers superb Solent and harbour views from most rooms and all outside spaces; the views from the roof terrace are spectacular! The building was totally refurbished in 2009, resulting in new electrical, plumbing and heating systems as well as the rooms being reconfigured to offer the most of the views and light. The waterfront terrace gives direct access to the water and mooring buoy currently allocated to Waterfront House at an annual charge of £69.74 per meter per annum (maximum 7m).
The apartment can either be accessed via a communal landing on the first floor to the open plan living/dining room, or by its own private entrance on the ground floor which opens to the large utility area with internal stairs to the first floor (see floorplan). Storage shouldn't be a problem either as the apartment has an extensive basement area.
This stunning duplex apartment comes to the market chain free and early viewing is strongly advised.
The accommodation is described in further detail below:
ENTRANCE As previously mentioned, Waterfront House has the benefit of two entrances; one on the ground floor with a door opening to the large utility area, which is probably the door that would be used on a day to day basis. The more formal entrance is a communal door on the ground floor with stairs leading up to the first floor landing and front door and a further flight of stairs up to the roof terrace; this is the entrance for the roof terrace parties!
GROUND FLOOR ENTRANCE Tiled flooring, staircase to first floor with under stairs storage. Glazed door to the fabulous waterfront terrace.
