Occupying a prominent position on Cowes Parade, Quayside lives up to its name. Located to enjoy the benefits of being centrally placed in the bustling sailing town of Cowes with access to the marinas yet being beautifully positioned to sit back and watch the activity on the ever changing Solent. Having been within the same families ownership since the 1970's the property offers surprisingly spacious accommodation, currently arranged with up to 4 receptions room and 5 bedrooms plus access to the roof.
