When I inherited the Commodore’s House from my mother, it was found to be unstable and in a dangerous condition. Occupying a fantastic position on Cowes waterfront, it would have been all too easy to rebuild it as yet another ugly block of flats. But I felt that I couldn’t do that to Cowes. Instead, we have preserved the character of Uffa Fox’s original conversion. We have made improvements too, transforming his boat shed into a party venue, and stabilising the roof terrace. Living here is a great pleasure, and we often reflect on the ingenuity of the engineer’s scheme and how successful it has been in restoring the integrity of the structure.”Bernard Olesinski Ltd
