Modern, contemporary and stylish, a three bedroom
detached home with the rare attribute of two parking spaces. This split level, beautifully presented property has two large bath/shower rooms and a living area forming the upper floor with sea glimpses. A recent refurbishment has produced an immaculate finish throughout with high end fittings. Set in the very heart of Old Town Cowes with its nautical heritage and an international mecca for sailing, culminating in Cowes Week held in August each year. Literally 2 minutes walk to the High Street, which has quick access to Southampton via the more modern Red Jet, many boutique shops and eateries including one run by a Michelin starred chef.
Approaching the property
A modern building set in a quiet location with a paved driveway large enough for two cars. Raised flower beds surround the parking area and hold palms spread amongst the grey slate chippings. Passing the outdoor storage building, formerly garage, you face the short flight of stairs with glass and metal balustrades, that lead up to the composite decked area at the side of the building. A secluded relaxation area which is also an excellent outdoor entertainment space. This area also gives access to the rear of the property which is sloped and grassed with dense mature shrubs and bushes surrounding it, thus sustaining the peace and quiet. A double height door, with charcoal grey frame that matches the window frames, has large panes of glass and gives a glimpse of the elegance and calibre of the property within.
Entering into the tall, double height hallway with oak flooring that snakes around into the kitchen/diner, you pass stairs going down and up to the sleeping and living areas, respectively.
The brightness of this area is helped by the glass dividing balustrade above in the living quarters and the floor to ceiling window in the kitchen. A beautifully appointed kitchen with low level integral fridge, freezer and dishwasher, Neff 4 zone hob and single oven, surrounded by oak worksurfaces and tiled splashback below the sleek cream kitchen units.
There is plenty of room for a dining table which makes this a very sociable area.
Turning off the main lobby down the carpeted stairs, you reach the luxurious rooms below. All rooms are bright due to the tall windows allowing light to flood in. The three bedrooms, two of which are double, are with oak doors and sumptuous carpets that convey a designer calm peaceful environment.
There is a bathroom and an ensuite shower room to the main bedroom, both are large and furnished with oak flooring, white suites, partly tiled with dark grey 'metro' tiles and chrome fittings. Two cupboards discreetly hide away space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer along with another housing the water cylinder and additional storage.
Also leading off the mezzanine hallway, is a staircase up to the open plan living area. A low level glass balustrade with black metal posts are a sleek modernish addition which allows you to see the room from below as well as keeping both the hallway and the upper tier light and bright and airy. Neutral walls and carpet elegantly offset the tall modern radiators and the centre piece of the bespoke fireplace and storage unit. This unique and attractive piece of furniture has clean straight lines and incorporates three recessed areas, one of which has a modern gas fire and the remaining two have lighting which gives the room a wonderful relaxed ambiance in the evening.
To one side of this large room is a dedicated study area with a beautiful oak built in desk and matching shelving above.
