Cowes Week is a bastion of Island tradition and undoubtedly a big part of the IW’s social calendar.

Established in the early 19th century, the first official regatta was held in 1812. Fourteen years later, in 1826, King George IV presented a gold cup worth £100 for the winner.
From that moment on, Cowes Week has continued to enthral crowds with hundreds of amateur and professional sailors and yachties alike competing in the annual races.
As one of the longest running yachting regattas in the world, the atmosphere of Cowes Week is contagious. Now here is a chance to claim your own, perennial, grandstand seat above the jostling crowds.
The lucky new owner of 5 Regatta House will be able to enjoy a prime view from the comfort of their own home in Bath Road.
From the balcony of this top-floor apartment, you are treated to panoramic views across The Solent. If you look to the left you can see Southampton and if you look to the right, you can see Portsmouth quite clearly. Using the familiar landmarks of the Spinnaker Tower and Fawley Power Station, you are able to get your mainland bearings very easily.
Closer to home, 5 Regatta House overlooks the harbour and The Parade as well as the end of the town. You are just a stone’s throw away from sailing clubs, Cowes High Street and the high-speed ferry.
Plenty of shops and restaurants are nearby, as well as a golf course and the lovely neighbouring town of Gurnard. Living on the doorstep of the seafront, you would never be short of things to see and do.
The apartment itself is well presented. there is a security gate and a further security door to enter the building. Handily, there is a lift that can take you to No 5 on third floor — as well as stairs.
Crossing the threshold of the apartment, you will immediately be struck by the amount of space on offer.
For an apartment in this location, you would assume the interior to be cosy and compact. However, this is not the case. There are three double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and two of which also benefit from built-in wardrobes and cupboards. From the en-suite to the master bedroom, there is a secondary door that cleverly leads you back into the main hallway.
The entrance hall is wide and spacious and there is a handy, generous-sized store cupboard as well as a part-boarded loft. The kitchen includes integrated appliances such as a dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washer/dryer.
Without doubt though, the star of this apartment is the lounge/dining room. With large double-glazed doors and windows, The Solent is your backdrop. And as if that wasn’t good enough, the balcony running the width of this room allows for you to further enjoy this spectacular seaside vista.
