THE APPROACH West Dormers can be reached via a lane that is located off of Egypt Hill, and is just a few minutes drive from Cowes with it's shops and restaurants, also the high speed Redjet service to Southampton with it's rail connections to London.


BRIEF HISTORY Before Dormers was split into two properties in the 1950's it was one unique and substantial marine residence. Standing proud in an elevated position with beautiful gardens that lead down to the esplanade, West Dormers enjoys simply exquisite views of the busy Solent waters. This property, reputedly built in 1886 to replicate the liner S.Y Boadicea retains some incredibly elegant features and represents a fabulous opportunity to purchase one of the noted residences of Cowes.


WEST DORMERS West Dormers enjoys many period features, and is entered by the original hallway which was once for the main house. From here a staircase leads to the upper floors and bedrooms whilst on the ground floor there are two reception rooms and a kitchen.

In addition to these characterful rooms can be found a very special and elegant ballroom with beautifully decorated high ceilings, panelled walls and multi paned windows looking out over the sweeping gardens to the sea.
