Whether you are looking for a permanent home or an easy to manage holiday retreat in the centre of Cowes, the aptly named ‘Harbour Lights’ could be top of your list. This three storey town house has wonderful views across to the harbour and the Solent and is only five minutes from the Royal Yacht Squadron. Originally built in the 1970s it has been modernised over the years and is now a contemporary family home with high end features such as oak doors and a staircase with oak and glass bannisters.
There is a hard standing frontage where you can park two or three cars that leads to the front door and the entrance hall. Here you will find a pair of glazed oak and glass doors that open into a delightful office/snug or double bedroom as it is opposite the ground floor shower room. This is ideally positioned for you to clean up after a day’s sailing or a walk with the dog. The spacious, open plan kitchen/dining room is a great area for friends and family to congregate and includes a gas hob and electric oven and a raft of cream units housing a variety of additional appliances. There are wide sliding patio doors to the conservatory and direct access to the adjacent utility room. The conservatory provides plenty of extra seating and dining space and doors to the rear garden.
In order to take advantage of the views the well-proportioned and elegant lounge is on the first floor and includes large picture windows. This floor also has a double bedroom with an en suite shower room and fitted cupboards with sliding, mirrored doors. On the second floor there is a family bathroom and two double bedrooms including one with a balcony where you can enjoy particularly spectacular views while you sit and sip your morning coffee.
Steps down from the conservatory lead to the superb decked and balustraded terrace with a covered veranda area where a dozen people can sit down to enjoy an al fresco meal. The rest of the garden is laid to lawn interspersed with a few trees and a shrub border. Plans have been drawn up to create a garage with a room above at the end of the garden, but they had not yet been put forward for approval but could be something new owners might consider.
