£1,200,000 SSTC

Cranmore, Isle of Wight, PO41 0XU


Peveril is a genuine 'one off' and over recent years been the subject of a major building project that has created an impressive Californian style, single storey coastal hideaway. Finished with a blend of natural stone, cedar, glass & steel, the design has produced a contemporary masterpiece. The house and grounds deliver some of the most impressive sea views along the South Coast of the UK and there is an abundance of wildlife with majestic oak trees that surround this stunning house. Large floor to ceiling height windows flood the house with natural light and give impressive views towards The Solent and also into the wonderful grounds. It's a technologically advanced house with thermostatically controlled electric background heating and LPG heating for the bedrooms, photovoltaic cells producing income by electricity generation, solar light tubes and high-end glazing systems. A Vent Axia Mechanical Ventilation & Heat Recovery (MVHR) system services the main house and draws in filtered fresh air and pre-warms it using the outgoing air, which operates constantly.

The main house comprises of 4 bedrooms (two with en-suite facilities), large open plan kitchen/diner/sitting room with an efficient and powerful freestanding multifuel burner, fabulous entrance hall and a large terrace with a raised deck to the side. The design has made the most of this inspirational coastal position with the principle rooms absorbing these views from this glorious setting. Three of the bedrooms have a south facing aspect with the master bedroom having been designed to enjoy a triple aspect and elevated sea views directly from your bed.

Although this property is rural, its actually less than 10 minutes' drive from the vibrant and historic harbour town of Yarmouth with amenities including; regular ferry links, sailing & yacht clubs, shops, restaurants, pubs and a church. The National Trust's Newtown National Nature Reserve (the only one to be found on the Island), with its medieval history is a brisk walk along the coastal footpath from the property, or a few minutes' drive. Mooring and boatyard facilities can be found in both Newtown and Yarmouth and the local village of Shalfleet has a shop, pub and church. As a testament to this special location, Peveril is located within the Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), above a newly designated Marine Conversation Zone (MCZ 23) and is about a mile to the Heritage Coastline.


OUTSIDE Located some 50m above sea level the property extends to about 11 acres which leads down to the beach, where the boundary is the high-water mark. There is a track that leads all the way down to the foreshore, that can be walked along or as the current owners often do; drive down with their all-terrain vehicle (quad bike). The property benefits from a good range of quality outbuildings with a gym room, stores, a good-sized garage and stabling. The current owners have constructed a high-quality hardwood greenhouse which is where the solar panels are situated. The neighbouring section of land (14 acres) is also available for sale, by separate negotiation. 

THE COTTAGE Linked with a path, there is a detached, self-contained cedar clad cottage located a short walk from the house; perfect for guests, family to stay but it would also make for a lucrative and successful holiday let. It has its own drainage system and vehicular access, and is positioned within stunning mature woodland, with level land that immediately surrounds the property. The cottage has a kitchen, and shower room with WC.  

SERVICES Water and electricity are connected. Private drainage (a separate system for the main house and cottage) and LPG gas serve the property.  

TENURE Freehold. The property owns a substantial section of foreshore with the high-water mark on the beach being the northern boundary to the property. The public are allowed to use the beach, but access to it is tricky, unless by boat.  

PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS The PV system which are on two large cedar wood greenhouses benefits from the government's original feed-in-tariff. The system has the maximum allowable domestic capacity of 4kW and went online in October 2011, then earning 43.3p/kWH. This increases with RPI, guaranteed until October 2036, and currently earns 54.17p/kWh or approximately £1,500 a year, tax free.
