Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Cowes - The Old Fire Station

Architecturally designed, high ceilings and light filled, quiet and private home

The Old Fire Station is an unusual property, originally a Victorian Fire Station that has been architecturally designed and beautifully refurbished to provide a fantastic modern holiday retreat hidden away in East Cowes. Being centrally located it is a perfect base for a couple or a family who want to explore the Island. The property is in East Cowes very close to Osborne House, opposite a lovely park, and a few minutes walk to East Cowes Marina, shops (including the only Waitrose), Red Funnel ferry terminal to the mainland and chain ferry to West Cowes. The property is surprisingly light and spacious and you really feel you are on holiday from the moment you walk in. It has been restored with love and with a sense of fun. Enjoy it!

PROPERTY DETAILS

As you walk into this unusual property, you are immediately aware of how special it is. The Fire Station is quirky and delightful. The hallway leads to the light open plan kitchen and double height living space with French doors out to the secluded south and west facing gardens. Above the kitchen there is a mezzanine floor with a proper staircase to an enchanting room with a single bed and special hidden away loft room with a small double which you climb into, a little like sleeping on a boat and ideally suited for older children or a young couple. The property is equipped with free WIFI and Sky TV. There is also a washing machine, Nespresso coffee maker, Magimix, dishwasher, microwave, BBQ and trampoline!
