“Verdon House was formerly part of a convent and is situated a short distance from the centre of East Cowes with its commercial centre and car ferry links to Southampton.

“Having undergone conversion works, from its original use, Verdon House has, for many years, provided residential accommodation in the form of 13 apartments, 12 of which are let under the terms of Assured Shorthold Tenancies and are producing a very worthwhile rental income.”

Outside of the property, which has a guide price of £750,000+, there is a residents’ car park and communal gardens.

A freehold self-contained block of 6x 2-bedroom apartments, let at £29,760 per annum, is guided at £470,000-500,000 and is located at Flats 1-6 Kingswood, Coronation Road, Cowes.

“Five of the six flats are let under the terms of Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements and producing a very worthwhile income, while the sixth flat is at present vacant having recently undergone a programme of upgrading and refurbishment.

“There are communal gardens to the rear and the block is considered ideal for addition to an income-producing letting portfolio.”
