This elegant and spacious late Georgian, Grade II listed townhouse is set within the heart of a conservation area in the popular seaside town of Ryde, on the Isle of Wight.
This terraced property has superb far-reaching Solent views from the top rooms and is opposite the iconic Ryde Theatre with its impressive clock tower.
Having been sympathetically restored throughout, the cottage combines its original features, enhanced by the many heritage colours used, with the clever use of contemporary fittings, especially in the stunning kitchen and bathrooms.
After walking up a few steps to the front door, you enter into a wonderfully bright hallway with the dining room and kitchen to your left and the staircase in front of you.
The dining room has high ceilings and the well-equipped, modern fitted kitchen is perfect for the chef in the group.
Upstairs on the half landing is the elegant family bathroom with freestanding bath and a few more steps up to the first floor is a double bedroom.
Next door you will find the impressive sitting room, filled with bags of character and light coming through the Georgian windows.
Up on the second floor is a family bedroom which is the perfect place to unwind and take in those wonderful sea views.
From here there is Jack-and-Jill access to a shower room which is shared with the final double bedroom.
From the utility you can walk out to the bottom of the steps to the raised gravelled courtyard garden with table and chairs.
Being centrally located, everything is close to Easton House; Ryde offers an array of transport links with a train which takes you down to the pier and all the way to Shanklin if desired.
There is also a hovercraft which is great fun and is only a 10 minute crossing to Portsmouth.
Ryde has something for everyone with its wide sandy golden beaches, marina, boating lake, indoor swimming pool with an opening roof for those sunny days, bowling alley, cinema and amusement arcades.
There is also plenty of choice for a meal out with restaurants, pubs and cafés amongst the stunning architecture all around you.
If a little pampering is required, pop into the Liz Earl shop as Ryde is where this iconic brand was born.
This is a truly elegant townhouse, perfectly located for year round enjoyment.

About the location

Ryde, fondly known as "The Gateway to the Island", is the largest town on the Isle of Wight and became popular as a holiday destination in the 1820s. Today, the regular ferry, catamaran and hovercraft services make this lovely resort accessible for all. There’s so much to see and do, catering for all ages and interests within the town and local area including a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, whilst the 6 miles of super, gently sloping sandy beaches are ideal for bathing. Along the esplanade there are bowling greens, tenpin bowling, putting greens and children’s rides as well as a boating lake and paddling pool. With many other attractions within easy reach, Ryde provides a superb base for touring this picturesque island.
