A smart front door opens into an entrance hall with multiple coat hooks and shoe rack, continuing up a characterful winding stairway (not suitable for disabled or infirm) to the first floor, comprising the bright airy kitchen.

Chest of drawers, spacious shelving and hanging space. Leading into a spacious bathroom with luxuriously large shower, large basin area and loo, plus more shelving.
The property is conveniently situated right on Cowes High Street - which is closed to traffic during the day and restricted at night. Great if you like to be in the centre of the action!
We moved to the Isle of Wight about 16 years ago, (from the home counties) and ran a couple of sailing clothing shops in Cowes - T&G Clothing and Murphy & Nye - for many years. We just love it here, and so do our children who were subsequently born here. The pace of life is much less hectic, there are so many lovely things to do, and you are always in reach of the sea the moment the sun comes out !
The house is a very old, quaint little seamans residence, it has probably been here for hundreds of years, judging by the sloping floors ! ( Which we have had completely underpinned during a big renovation project in 2007, don't worry !)
It really is in such a great location, right in heart of the little harbour town of Cowes, a stone's throw from the marina, a great selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Our kids just love staying there, feeling they are right in the middle of all the action, yet in a safe haven !
The views over the marina and the Solent are lovely, as are the gentle seaside sounds of the masts, etc.
