- Impressive 7 bedroom Period house
- Sought after Old Town Cowes location
- Extensive accommodation
A most impressive period house in the sought after 'Old Town' area of Cowes offering extensive 7 bedroom accommodation in this famous yachting mecca and within a short walk of the Yacht Clubs. Glenholme is arranged over 4 floors with a stylish addition to the lower ground floor providing a large sociable kitchen/living/dining space ideal for family dining or entertaining with 3 sets of French doors leading to the south facing garden. This contemporary space blends well with the traditional features offered in this Victorian home. On the ground floor there are two attractive reception rooms with views towards St Marys Church and Northwood Park, a study and cloakroom with large shower. There are 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and 4 bedrooms plus shower room on the second floor, with views over the harbour to the rear. To the rear is a pretty walled garden, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining which enjoys a southerly aspect. A great benefit for a town property is the single parking space adjacent to the house. Over the years Glenholme has generated considerable sums through short lets for annual sailing regattas, including the world famous Cowes Week Regatta. Cowes is a vibrant area for shopping, with many boutique stores mixed in with nautical stores, yacht clubs, restaurants and coffee shops. The Red Jet high-speed service to Southampton operates from Fountain Yard just off the High Street, a 3 minute walk from Glenholme. The Parade to the west of the town front, is a great place to take a stroll, and makes for an easy scenic walk along to the neighbouring village of Gurnard.
