Beyond the fresh, New England style frontage of Windward, which includes your own balcony from which you can watch the world go by, lies equally superb accommodation.

Built in 2011, this contemporary home in sought after Kings Road, Bembridge, has been designed to make the most of the natural light and space. That means the open-plan living and dining areas are on the first floor, where the sky is almost literally the limit, with high vaulted tongue-and-groove panelled ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glazing dominating the room. You can always throw the doors open onto the glass-fronted balcony from here too, for an extra dose of luxury.

Solid wood flooring emphasises the coastal, New England feel in this easy to maintain space, and the kitchen features eye-catching tiling and many integrated appliances, including fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, electric oven and grill, and a gas hob with cooker hood over.

The ground floor is where you'll find your three bedrooms, which are equally well appointed, with neutral carpet throughout. The ensuite master room has opening fanlight windows and French doors leading out to the garden. This pretty area has been planted with a wide variety of plants, shrubs and flowers and there is a paved patio and decked sun terrace, which will easily accommodate a barbecue and dining area. To the front of the property there are two spaces for off-road parking.

Front-facing bedroom two is a double room, while the third bedroom will accommodate a single bed or bunks. The family bathroom has an attractive porthole-style window to the rear and is fitted with a panelled bath and shower over, with rainfall head and hand-shower attachment. A wash basin and WC complete the suite.

For those looking to embrace Island life by the sea, Windward also puts a huge tick in the location box, being close to Bembridge harbour and the sailing club, and equidistant from the comprehensive range of shops and facilities in the centre of the village.
