Seagulls

Seagulls occupies a stunning prime position as one of the most eastern houses on the island with an elevated position with panoramic views out to sea across a large garden overlooking the beaches and Bembridge Ledge.

The current property benefits from a range of well-proportioned reception space in addition to three good bedrooms, two bathrooms, an integrated garage and enclosed and level gardens all achieving glorious views.  

THE ISLAND

Only 23 miles by 13 miles, and a short sea crossing from the mainland, the Isle of Wight has a unique atmosphere boasting many attributes, not least of which is its slower pace of life and its own microclimate. It enjoys unspoilt villages and fine seaside resorts with many miles of impressive coastal scenery. With safe sandy beaches, it is a place for sailing, windsurfing and swimming, ideal for both young and old. The Island is also an international sailing mecca with many events throughout the season, the most famous of which is Cowes Week. In addition, there are many premier yacht and sailing clubs including nearby Bembridge Sailing Club and Brading Haven Yacht Club. 

BEMBRIDGE

The Village has a good range of small shops for everyday needs, including an excellent fishmonger with freshly caught fish, a farm shop, a butcher, a delicatessen and several good restaurants. A more comprehensive range of shopping facilities is available in the county town of Newport (13 miles) and the nearby town of Ryde (7 miles). Located close to the eastern most point of The Island. Bembridge Harbour has extensive mooring facilities and two sailing clubs. There are wonderful coastal walks, a beautiful lagoon for fishing and sandy beaches directly accessible from the property, in addition to a shallow haven, perfect for swimming, kite-surfing, paddle boarding and beach-combing.
