SEA Crest, 32 Westfield Park in Ryde, just off Spencer’sRoad is the most aptly named property I have had the privilege to visit on myproperty beat.

Indeed, from both the ground and first floor at high tide,you feel like you are riding the crest of a wave with this home extending outto sea. It’s really rather special.

Sea Crest sits in a double plot. The back garden alone spans100 feet and offers panoramic views across The Solent and the mainland skylinebeyond. To give you an idea as to the breadth of the view on offer, you can seeSouthampton Water to the West and across to the Palmerstone Forts in the East.If you are a fellow member of the ‘I love sea views club’, then this propertyalone is worth your subs.

This home was constructed in the 1970’s and has light,spacious accommodation as well as an abundance of off-road parking, a detacheddouble garage, attached single garage or workshop, garden area to the front anda patio to the back that opens into the rear garden. Sea Crest also has accessto a private slipway directly onto the beach.

As you approach the front of the property there is a largeopen porch that hints at the space on offer. Stepping inside, stairs leadupstairs and onto a galleried landing. From the entrance hall you can turnright into the cloakroom, left into the dining room or around the stairs andinto the kitchen or large utility room.

From the dining room and kitchen you can access the morningroom, separated from the dining room by sliding glass doors. And from thedining room you can access the magnificent drawing room. Adjacent to that roomis the garden room.

My first port of call was the kitchen. I was so distractedby the view from the bay window that I almost failed to notice the cream shakerstyle units and contrasting worktops. Washing up would never be a chore here.There is space for a Rangemaster double oven as well as space and plumbing fora dishwasher and space for a freestanding fridge freezer.

The generous dual aspect drawing room has a wood burningstove set in a handsome fireplace surround as well as doors leading directly tothe terrace and those special Solent views. Also offering access to the reargarden directly are the morning room and garden room.

Up on the first floor is a luxurious master suite, threefurther bedrooms — all with fitted wardrobes and two with sea views, one ofwhich has a door to a balcony; and a large family bathroom with a bath, shower,basin and WC.

The master suite comprises a study or living room with adoor to the balcony to enjoy the views. There is also a large bedroom withthree built-in double wardrobes, chest of drawers, corner unit and a vanityunit. A door leads to a dressing area with fitted furniture and the largeen-suite bathroom.
