About the property

House on River Medina, Nr. Newport, Isle of Wight, England - Peaceful Location Overlooking Nature Reserve

A modern townhouse constructed in 2010 on a small development. One of only forty eight homes that were built entirely on water. This enables the house to have the most incredible water views from any window or balcony. It has the unique capability to combine both the peace and quiet, of the countryside, with the convenience of shops and transport, being within a 10 minute drive to both Cowes and Newport.

About Karen O'Hara

Both my partner and I live in Southampton and have two cats, whom we adore. I work as a teacher in a local primary school, but enjoy holidaying on the Isle of Wight. Our neighbours here are friendly and helpful and they have made us feel very welcome in our holiday home.

Karen O'Hara purchased this house in 2014

Why Karen O'Hara chose East Cowes

We have always visited the Isle of Wight and enjoyed many holidays there. On one of our visits we stumbled across the marina development and were impressed at the variety of properties on the sight. As soon as we saw that one was for sale, that was it and very soon it was ours. We are always amazed that a ferry journey and a 15 minute drive can transport us to such a peaceful and restful place, that is still within a short drive to every convenience that we might need.

What makes this house unique

The property is built on a mill pond and has it's own 10 metre mooring. The marina has a chandlery and bar/restaurant which serves reasonably priced food all day. There are many visitor attractions that can be reached by car or public transport, including Osborne House, Blackgang Chine and Alum bay. Cycling and walking routes are clearly signposted.
