Inspirational show apartment to open at Marinus, Isle of Wight

11th February 2007 Print
View from Marinus Housebuilder of distinction Charles Church is to open a brand new show apartment on Saturday 17th February at Marinus in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Marinus is a spectacular waterside development of one, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses lying in a unique position overlooking the entrance to the River Medina and the Solent beyond.

The new show apartment is an outstanding first floor, two bedroom, two bathroom apartment benefiting from a spacious balcony overlooking the central landscaped courtyard area with maritime views beyond. Its well-planned interior and superior levels of specification and finish are testament to the exacting build quality to be found in every Charles Church apartment at Marinus, and are sure to impress visitors to the development.

With the streamlined and highly-contemporary Italian kitchen forming a key element of the open-plan design of the apartment, the quality of its cabinetry is naturally high.

Purchasers are able to choose from a stunning range of pre-selected quality door finishes, handles, worktops and ceramic floor tiles, whilst comprehensive built-in and integrated appliances include a Bosch stainless steel oven with electric hob, extractor hood and stainless steel splashback, a fully integrated fridge and freezer, condensing washer dryer and a dishwasher. The kitchen of the show apartment additionally features a number of items from Charles Church’s extensive ‘Select’ options range, including granite worktops with matching upstands, a built-in stainless steel microwave oven, integrated coffee machine, 600cm wine cooler and new to the market two-drawer dishwasher.

With the apartment’s master bedroom suite featuring an en-suite bathroom and the remaining bedroom served by a family bathroom, the attention to detail so evident throughout the property is echoed here with a chic, uncluttered look. Classic white Ideal Standard sanitaryware is complemented by crisp, white built-in vanity units fitted with substantial stone tops, whilst chrome taps and fittings co-ordinate beautifully with practical chrome ladder-style heated towel rails. Both bathrooms are finished in a choice of ceramic or porcelain wall and floor tiles from a selected range.

The contemporary finish of the show apartment at Marinus is further accentuated by distinguishing touches such as light oak veneer internal doors with distinctive inlay, with chrome effect ironmongery co-ordinating with electrical sockets, and smooth ceilings complemented in the main living area and bedrooms by deep triple-stepped ceiling coving.

With residents benefiting from the provision of a lift service to all floors, a secure video entry system, allocated parking and delightful landscaped grounds maintained by a management company, Marinus provides the perfect backdrop for an enviable way of living. Designed to reflect the special nature of its waterside setting, residents also benefit from access to a breathtaking promenade constructed by Charles Church.

With the superb location of Marinus just five minutes walk away from the historic and vibrant main port of Cowes, one of the key boating and sailing centres of Europe, residents can enjoy the best the Isle of Wight has to offer. At the same time, ease of access to the Island’s walk-on and car ferry terminals means that the mainland is never far away.

With up to 350 ferry crossings a day to and from a number of ferry ports, linking the Island with the mainland in as little as 10 minutes, transport connections are easy, whilst Southampton Airport also offers onwards travel to a number of European destinations.

Apartments at Marinus are already 50% sold, and with prices currently starting from £210,950 and a new show apartment opening on February 17th, interest in the remaining homes is expected to be high. For further information, visit
