BRAND NEW! NEVER BEEN USED!
Houseboat with gorgeous views, decked outside space and raised viewing platform to gaze across Wootton Creek. This sheltered berth has been in the family for generations with many reincarnations of boat moored here, this being the newest with all modern facilities. Perfect investment opportunity for rental or airBNB located in this beautiful wooded area on the waters edge looking over a stunning vista. There is the added bonus of it being a FREEHOLD PLOT, which is rare and sort after in this location.
A very well situated location, minutes from the Wightlink Fishbourne ferry and approx 10 mins drive to the Red Funnel ferry terminal at East Cowes, it is equidistant between Ryde and the county town of Newport. Several pubs, including The Sloop and The Cedars, are in the high street along with various takeaway establishments, a Tescos Express and a very popular local Mediterranean restaurant. A doctors, dentist and veterinary surgery are also within the village giving a variety of amenities at your finger tips. Recreationally, there are many beautiful walks and cycling tracks in the surrounding area. For any water activities the Royal Victoria Yacht Club is at the head of Wootton Creek. Lakeside is a 4* hotel with spa and restaurants that over looks the water and tranquil countryside, which can also be viewed from the carriages on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway which has a carefully restored station at Wootton.
Approaching The Property
The newly laid driveway, with room for 4-5 vehicles, leads through the leafy perimeter to high double wooden gates.
Once through the gated entrance, there is an expanse of outside area and the phenomenal views are breathtaking. An idyllic, peaceful enclave. Initially a gravelled area which then changes into a newly decked space with wooden planters surrounding the edge of the platform, within a break of these is the gangplank leading down to the boat. Perched on the decking is a further outdoors level accessed via a wooden staircase to a large viewing point, perfect to sit and relax and enjoy the scenery across the water to the Royal Victoria Yacht Club and countryside beyond. Cleverly constructed, the frame for this vantage point gives shelter to the area beneath which is a perfect spot for al fresco eating and entertaining.
Song Of The Wind
This new modern houseboat sits with a wrap round wooden walk way within a secluded inlet on Wootton Creek. The colour theme of dark grey (the exterior) and white (the double glazed windows), continues inside with light grey flooring and carpet within some areas. All in a contemporary style, with two bedrooms - one can fit a king size bed, a shower room and an open plan kitchen living space, which are all pristine.
The kitchen area has white gloss wall and base units that horseshoe around, compete with integrated oven, hob, extractor fan and fridge with the worksurface forming a breakfast bar at one side. This comfortably sits 3 people and zones this open plan kitchen/sitting/entertaining area extremely well.
The most outstanding feature of this room are the views from the windows on all sides giving the most magnificent waterside scenes. Listen to the gentle lap against the boat, the bird song and relax.
All electrical power to the utility room and the houseboat is newly installed
