DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY: Former hotel with consent for conversion and extension to provide luxury waterfront homes. Stunning seafront location overlooking Spithead and the Solent with panoramic sea views.
This former hotel is in a stunning seafront location, overlooking Spithead and the Solent with planning consent for alteration and extension. Consent Ref: TCP/01296/18, P/01296/18 – dated 25/1/19
This is a rare opportunity to develop your own luxury waterfront home, comprising of a garage and gym on the lower ground floor, an open plan living and dining room on the ground floor, two double en-suite bedrooms and a dressing room on the first floor, two more en-suite double bedrooms, a dressing room and roof terrace on the second floor, and a spacious master suite on the third floor. The house is approached by steps and there are gardens to the rear.
The hotel closed some years ago (c. 2010) and is now being sold with vacant possession. Constructed of colour-washed stuccoed elevations in an ‘Italianate’ decorative style, the current building extends over 5-storeys including a lower ground level. Before becoming a hotel, the property is believed to have been a pair of semi-detached private residences originally built in the mid/late 19th Century.
Successful purchasers will secure the sum of £48,000 with their solicitor, which will cover the provision of a new roof, new windows, the division of services to each home, rendering of the entire property, divisions of the rear garden, parking provision, internal divisions and staircases in each property to each floor. This provision gives successful purchasers a fantastic head start when creating their dream waterfront home.

Ryde, about 2 miles away is the largest town on the island with mainland connections by hovercraft (10 mins) to Southsea and a fast catamaran (22 mins) to Portsmouth with onward train links to London (approximately 1 hour 30 mins). With 6 miles of beaches and shallow coastal waters it is ideal for swimming. To the east of Ryde there are popular sailing villages which include Seaview, St Helens and Bembridge.
