A three storey waterfront townhouse
Located in a small, secure, gated development built in 1987 - a private location which is within a few short minutes level walk to Cowes town centre.
The versatile accommodation is arranged over three floors and includes two good size balconies from where you can enjoy fantastic views of the marina and the sea. There is a spacious open plan living area that opens to the kitchen, 3 bedrooms and the added benefit of owning a share of the private pontoon, entitling an owner up to 6 metres mooring space. This home also has a hugely sought after private parking space within this area.
Cowes is rich in nautical heritage and an international mecca for sailing, culminating in Cowes Week held in August each year. It has quick access to Southampton via the more modern Red Jet as well as many marinas and sailing clubs dotted along the waterfront.
Within the High Street there are two supermarkets, many boutique shops, pubs and eateries. Historical Northwood House & Park hosts weddings, fairs, concerts and conferences with outside space to enjoy walks. The chain ferry, known locally as 'The Floaty', links Cowes to East Cowes where the Red Funnel car and passenger ferry to the mainland is situated.
Approaching the property
Tides Reach is accessed from Birmingham Road through an archway and double electric gates leading to the parking area. This fantastic townhouse comes with an allocated parking space.
Entering into a hallway which has a recently carpeted staircase that winds up through the floors. Repainted in neutral tones throughout and wooden flooring or laminate in all bedrooms and reception rooms, this well presented home has bright and airy spaces.
Within the lobby are two handy storage cupboards and, at a high level, is a new consumer unit. There are two double bedrooms off the hallway and a shower room.
The double bedroom to the front is currently used by the present owner as a dressing room and the rear has newly fitted double patio doors leading out to a paved terrace, made into a private sanctuary with the help of a privacy trellis. From here, views of the marina and out to the Solent can be enjoyed.
The recently renovated shower room is a great edition to this floor and has a modern LED bathroom mirror and a large fully 'metro' tiled walk in shower.
On this level is a good sized open plan sitting/dining room, upgraded kitchen and separate cloakroom that also contains the combi boiler.
A large bright sitting room has newly installed bi-fold doors that open out onto the composite decked balcony, with its glass panels and wooden balustrade, that looks over the watery vista and is a relaxing area to sit and watch the boats bobbing along.
The newly fitted kitchen is well appointed and has plenty of cupboard space with both wall and base units that have a thick oak worksurface flowing over. The units include an integral Bosch induction hob, microwave oven and single oven. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer.
This spacious and light room has some of the best views in the house and is currently used as office/relaxing space, but could easily be this homes principal bedroom complete with ensuite bathroom.
