PROPERTY DESCRIPTION This charming and spacious one double bedroom ground floor apartment is situated within the most imposing late Victorian/early Edwardian building, once a private residence, located in a very popular and highly sought after part of Ryde town centre. This stunning apartment is typical of its era retaining many original features, such as stained glass windows, panelled doors, high ceilings and large windows, giving it a wonderful ambience and opulence. Immediately you step into this building you instantly feel part of its rich past and local history. Gordon Lodge is located in the highly desirable Vernon Square area of Ryde, and is surrounded by many similar period properties of both architectural and historical relevance to the town. This elegant and very stylish property is presented in excellent order throughout having been extensively renovated and tastefully decorated by the current owner to exacting standards of finish. The smart contemporary design scheme would not be out of place on the pages of a life-style magazine, with the owner having perfected a balanced blend of traditional character complemented beautifully by modern day comforts, and stylish, modern "boutique" themed decor! Innovative design and superb attention to detail make this a very desirable and "en-vogue" apartment. Wood Street is one of the most sought after areas within the town and is in close proximity to award winning sandy beaches, a short walk from the bustling town centre with its artisan bars and restaurants, boutique shops, bus routes, mainland transport links, and Ryde Esplanade. The property would make an ideal lock-up-and-leave holiday home. HOLIDAY LETTING PERMITTED SUBJECT TO TERMS STATED BELOW.
