Plot 2, Quarrhurst

The plot is one of just two individual plots with differing and unique designs occupying a wonderfully quiet and yet highly convenient position with planning permission for an outstanding and inspired architectural design.
The approved design is for a spacious and light contemporary house, by multi-award winning practice Lincoln Miles Architecture. The two storey home extends to 331 sq.m with a private path, (shared with the adjacent house only) leading through the mature woodland down to the beach. Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this stunning sylvan setting is on a ‘no through’ road with access onto the coastal path and nearby Quarr Abbey.

Lincoln Miles is a multi-disciplinary designer whose work crosses from architecture into products, sculpture and the wider visual arts with a specific attention to engineering. Lincoln Miles Architecture (LMA) has been responsible for the highest concentration of Grand Designs homes in one road in the UK which include Tane, a house which is cleverly enfolded within its landscape and Fairways, a modern dwelling that appears to levitate into the trees. Tane featured in the Grand Designs TV series in 2010, was short-listed for the show’s awards in 2013 and nominated as one of designer and show presenter Kevin McCloud’s Top Ten Grand Design projects. It also won the RIBA regional award (IOW) in 2011 and the Architects Journal Small Build Award in 2012.

With a naturally mild climate, great diversity of landscapes, (half of which are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and some 92 kilometres of beautiful coastline, the Isle of Wight offers plenty of unspoilt areas which have been favoured holiday destinations since Victorian times.
The Quarr area offers tranquillity combining ancient woodlands, leading to a picturesque stretch of beach, whilst also being easily accessible from nearby mainland ferry links providing the perfect situation for a family home or island retreat.
A superb building plot with planning consent for a striking contemporary home with private beach access in a highly desirable location

The plot is within easy reach of the thriving seaside town of Ryde where the pier receives regular passenger ferries from the mainland from which travellers can connect by rail to London Waterloo as well as major motorway routes. Ryde also offers a variety of restaurants, pubs, cafés, shops and schools. The nearby towns of Newport and Cowes offer further facilities, whilst Portsmouth on the mainland is only a short journey away. The beautiful and historic Quarr Abbey, a World Heritage Site, is a short walk away.
Sailing and water sports have brought fame to the island, with the Solent playing a key role. Cowes, the mecca of the sailing world. A wide range of other water and land based sports can be enjoyed locally.

By ferry via Fishbourne Car Ferry, FastCat and Hovercraft services located in Ryde, all with onward train connections to London:
Portsmouth to Fishbourne (minutes to Quarrhurst Lodge by car) is a car and passenger service with a crossing time of approx. 45 minutes. Portsmouth Rail Network to Ryde Pier Head (approx. 10 minutes drive to Quarrhurst Lodge) is a fast catamaran passenger
service, with a crossing time of around 22 minutes.
Southsea HoverTravel to Ryde is a passenger crossing of around 12 minutes. Other nearby ferry connections include the East Cowes vehicle ferry to Southampton (crossing time of approx. 55 minutes)
and the highspeed passenger ferry from Cowes to Southampton with a crossing time of around 23 minutes. By car connections are excellent with the A3 and M3 linking from London and the Home Counties, as well as Southampton, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.
By rail, the journey is approximately 70minutes from London Waterloo to Portsmouth or Southampton.

The accommodation comprises:

– Entrance Hall
– Kitchen/Dining Room with large
sliding doors to the garden
– Sitting Room

A gated access leads to a parking area for a number of cars. The house is surrounded by gardens with an extensive raised, decked terrace across most of the western and northern elevations beyond which are lawned gardens extending into the mature woodland, forming a stunning natural backdrop to the property. A path (in shared ownership with Plot 1 Quarrhurst Lodge), is approximately 280m to the beach, where there is potential to build a beach house, subject to the necessary consents.

Details of the approved planning permission can be found on the Isle of Wight Council Planning website under Ref: 22/00361/FUL. Granted 17th April 2023 . The Vendors will settle the Rights of Way Contributions and Habitat Mitigation Contributions.
