A stunning three bedroom detached home
in Cowes Old Town. Constructed in a contemporary design with an 'L' shaped balcony giving superb vistas across the harbour and beyond. Off street parking (with an electric car charging point), outside space and garden room are bonuses to this beautiful home which has been thoughtfully and stylishly developed and decorated inside and out.
Cowes is rich in nautical heritage and an international mecca for sailing, culminating in Cowes Week held in August each year. The area known as 'Old Town Cowes' is literally 2 minutes walk to the main thoroughfare, which has quick access to Southampton via the more modern Red Jet along with many marinas and sailing clubs dotted along the seafront. Within the High Street here are two supermarkets, many boutique shops, pubs and eateries including one run by a Michelin starred chef.
Approaching The Property
Set in a quiet secluded location in Old Town Cowes, this deceptive looking property looks out to sea with far reaching views across the water. The parking space next to the house has an electric car charging point and low level lighting, the perimetre of the building is surrounded by a white low wall topped with grey slate tiles. Glass and steel frames with wooden decking, all beautifully work together to give a contemporary finish to this entrance area and hint at the quality of work and contemporary style inside the building. A dark slate path leads to the modern charcoal grey door with its reflective viewing panels either side, allowing light in but with privacy ensured.
A light airy entrance hallway with wide oak floorboards complete with underfloor heating flow throughout this floor. This modern home is presented in soft muted tones and along with discreet details, and some outstanding features, gives it a stylish finish such as all light switches and sockets are in brushed chrome, reflective tops on the bannister pillars, low level lighting on the stairway, high end kitchen appliances and bespoke carpentry.
Three oak bi-fold doors line up in the lobby giving access to storage cupboards and glimpses of the outdoor area can be seen from the tall window that falls away, highlighting the stairway and illuminating the space above and below. A cloakroom with its understated design including beach hut motifs, is off the hallway and a doorway leads to a fabulous open plan living and dining room.
This outstanding area is perfect for entertaining and relaxing with ample space, well designed in a sophisticated but warm and welcoming style. The sitting area has double sliding patio doors opening onto an 'L' shaped balcony with its unfettered views across to the harbour through the glass and steel balustrade. Outside lighting and an outdoors wall mounted heater ensure you can enjoy the scenery all year round.
The lower hallway leads off to the three bedrooms, two with ensuites, a separate wet room and laundry cupboard with space and plumbing for a washer/dryer.
The wet room is fully tiled with a feature wall and stylish flooring. Within this room are cupboards which also house the Vaillant boiler.
The two large double bedrooms are, as expected, subtly and beautifully decorated and both with ensuites. The bedroom at the fore of the property has a large tiled shower room and the rear has a generous ensuite bathroom with separate bath and large shower cubicle. All these 'wet' areas are immaculately presented in a contemporary finish and colours. In addition, the main bedroom has an amazing floor to ceiling walk-in wardrobe with, seemingly, endless cupboards, drawers and hanging room. The light streams into this bedroom through the single patio door and windows with their discreet 'plantation' blinds.
The third bedroom is a single room with built in wardrobes along one wall. This too has a patio door opening into the garden and is sheltered by the balcony above.
Accessed either from the road above via a metal stairway or from two of the bedrooms downstairs, this wrap round garden is as thoughtfully designed as is inside the property. Secluded and screened by fencing and trellises, there are several designated areas, these are on a raised level and have a cream tiled flooring. From a laundry area and timber garden room at one end to, at the opposing end of the garden, a wide entertaining area suitable for seating and relaxing in this peaceful space. Beneath the car parking area is a great sheltered storage area that has shingle paths snaking off around the building itself. Outside lighting and power make this an all year, easy to maintain, useable space.
