A four bedroom town house
with magnificent views across Island Harbour and the River Medina. With three bath/shower rooms, 10m mooring and two balconies, this is an ideal property to live permanently, holiday or long term let.
Set in a beautiful and secluded valley, yet in a central location, Island Harbour is the perfect base from which to explore the Island and the Solent. Located in navigable water on the River Medina, the marina is approximately 2 miles upstream from Cowes, just above the Folly reach. As a site of Special Scientific Interest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the marina is home to many species of birds and wildlife. Meadows and woodland copses slope down to the marina's edge. A stroll along the nature trail allows you to fully appreciate the seclusion and tranquillity of the marina site. With just under 100 properties, Island Harbour is home to permanent residents, secondary residents and holiday makers alike. The locked harbour is a safe and secure place to moor a boat or just visit for the day! The harbour benefits from The Breeze, a popular restaurant, only a short walk away with lovely marina and river views. Other amenities include a chandlery, repair workshop, 50 ton hoist and slip crane, hard standing, showers and laundry room. The development is surrounded by well-kept communal grounds that include a meadow, an open field which has been purchased by the residents to provide private dog exercise space and a BBQ area. The estate benefits from 6 newly installed Project Pev Pro electric charging points which are available to residents. There is a walk/cycle trail that leads you to Newport along the River Medina with beautiful views.
