Fishbourne, Isle Of Wight, PO33 4EU



FISHBOURNE HOUSE Originally Georgian, now updated in New England Style, from the front windows you can enjoy watching the myriad of ships, cruise liners, and racing yachts including the Americas Cup team who are currently training to wrest the Cup away from the USA in 2017. The house has been immaculately refurbished and the layout of accommodation complements both formal entertaining and comfortable day to day living.

Situated in one of the most convenient and attractive parts of this wonderful island, Fishbourne House is only a short walk to the Portsmouth Ferry making London within easy reach for a day's shopping, or business, without the cost and frustration of parking the car at either end. For those who need to take the car, special residents reduced fares are available all year round and when you return you will be relaxing at home within seconds of exiting the ferry.

As the name implies, Fishbourne House was one of the first houses to be built in the village of Fishbourne. A village, that exemplifies the very essence of what one dreams when the word village is mentioned. The Fishbourne Inn and The Royal Victoria Yacht Club are the heart and soul of this friendly community. There is never any pressure to join in the many activities that spring up throughout the year but you will be included whenever you wish. It may be Christmas or New Year celebrations at the Inn, or monthly Parish Council meetings at the Yacht Club or enjoying a summer party on the Village Green whilst sitting under the magnificent oak tree which regularly gave shelter from the sun to Queen Victoria over a hundred a years ago

For those who enjoy life on the water Fishbourne House has its own mooring which is ideal for a fast Rib. Included in the sale is an almost new 2.6 meter Inflatable with outboard, perfect for getting to the mooring or simply exploring the nearby creeks or perhaps a little fishing? The Marina is only a fifteen minute drive if something a little bigger takes your fancy.

Fishbourne House is not just a home, it is a lifestyle.
