2 bedroom house
Arctic Road, Cowes, Isle of Wight

I really love this house – it has been so meticulously thought through, with the extra touches of decadence which make it truly individual and hugely appealing. It is located on the outskirts of the town – so accessible to all the super facilities that Cowes has to offer.
A huge amount of attention to detail has been invested in this handsome terraced home, creating a high quality and extremely appealing residence. The deceptively spacious interior is beautifully decorated in a calming modern colour palette and features attractive period fireplaces in the bedrooms and dining room. The cosy sitting room is at the front of the home, whilst the separate dining room has a striking ornate fireplace set against a feature colour chimney breast. The sleek, modern kitchen has integrated appliances set behind the dark grey cupboard fronts; has underfloor heating and a cleverly installed radio system with inset speakers to the ceiling - this also features in the bathroom - adding an extra luxurious touch. There is a garden level which has a smart utility room with a cloakroom off, and (one of my favourite parts of the house) an under house den - all carpeted and set up as a movie room, fully sound proofed and wonderfully designed with its own built in drinks cabinet!
Upstairs, on the first floor, there are two comfortable double bedrooms, serviced by the elegantly styled bathroom with a super river outlook over the rooftops. The rear garden is laid to lawn and has very handy pedestrian rear access.
