Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The site is located off Union Road, within the Cowes conservation area and currently accommodates the rear of the recently converted congregational church hall.
The two new build units (One 3-bed & one 4-bed) to the rear of the site are designed to create generosity of light and views, whilst minimising overlooking of neighbours. This has been achieved through designing the house inside out with carefully placed light-wells offering double aspect in many rooms.
Whilst we refer to the 'rear' units as being newly built we note that the first unit utilises the existing staircase of the church hall within its demise, thereby minimising disturbance of the existing structural walls.
The new building then, is cut into the existing levels such that the ground floor is accessible from the street entrance, but is also completely obscured below the existing boundary walls. As you rise out of the ground floor the footprint is reduced at each of the next two levels to withdraw further away from the boundaries. At first floor the main body of the extension is set back from the front of the church to create garden and roof terrace space. The proposed roof terrace here incorporates a built in planter which creates a foreground to Solent views but also prevents occupants coming right up to the north boundary and looking over the garage courtyard adjacent. We believe that this feature benefits both neighbours and occupants.
At second floor the building sets back within the location of the earlier annexe, now removed. The master suite is accommodated in the volume of the mansard roof and will enjoy excellent Solent views from proposed clear windows to the north only. We note that the set back of the second floor from the advanced church hall removes direct overlooking of the adjacent neighbours. Other glazing to the south west corner courtyard will be obscured to prevent any overlooking; this feature is for the provision of afternoon light into the upstairs circulation only.  

VIEWING is strictly by appointment via the sole agents, Waterside Isle of Wight.
