Fabulous architect designed apartment
within a period property. This three bedroomed immaculately presented apartment is quirky but elegant with internal high end fittings and has private use areas amongst the communal gardens. Off road parking to the fore of this character property, which contains four apartments, has glimpses of the sea between the mature trees within the beautifully maintained grounds at the rear. The current owner believes the property was commissioned by JS White, of local shipwrights fame. Set within the prestigious Baring Road area it is an easy walk into Cowes town centre with its many restaurants and bars, marinas and The Royal Yacht Squadron, the 'Red Jet' link to Southampton as well as the property being close to Cowes Golf Club. A fabulous permanent home, holiday residence or 'lock up and leave' property with character and style.
Approaching the property
Set back from the road this attractive period property, built in red brick with cream decorative details, has a large block paved drive in/drive out forecourt. This shared driveway with wooden gates at the entrance/exit has mature hedges and trees around the outer edges and access to the rear gardens at either side. The lower part of the building is painted white which gives a clean bright exterior complementing the light resin flooring on the small flight of steps leading down to the main door. A black granite threshold, which all external doors have, lies in front of the mahogany wood entrance door with a distinctive rope bound handle and opaque glass central pane. This is a forerunner of the quality and unusual features within.
Flat 1, The Hayes
There any many consistant features within this property, with design and high quality fittings and beautiful thoughtful additions not always being obvious at first glance. Mahogany wood is used throughout for doors, skirting boards and door frames as well as trims around the kitchen units and bathroom cabinets. All internal doors have lightly tinted glass panels with the door between the main bedroom and the 'Jack and Jill' bathroom cleverly becoming a reflective mirror within the bedroom. Deep window sills throughout the property are proof of the age of the building and with the many windows, tall patio doors and the high celings makes each room bright, airy and comfortable. There is underfloor heating in all rooms which has 5 separate zones, 'Amitco' flooring to most rooms, carpeted main bedroom and the bath/wet rooms are fully tiled.
With mature trees around the perimeter of the property and a central manicured lawn, this beautifully maintained, deep, communual garden is spread across the width of this building. Flat 1 owns the three wooden decked patios that are adjacent to the apartment with two of them sunken and access from a bedroom and the other from the living area, the third at a higher level outside another bedroom. With outside power and lighting all these areas overlook the peaceful gardens where you can relax and catch sight of the sea through the foliage and enjoy the afternoon and evening sun.
