There are not many new houses built to this standard or of this size and so Statice is quite unusual – especially for the Isle of Wight. It’s a stunning house of 6,000sq ft, just a few minutes walk from the beach in Swains Lane, which is a popular un-adopted lane in Bembridge.
The three storey house has been built on the lines of a ‘gentleman’s residence’ in the style of an Edwardian seaside villa with red brick and render façade, black front door, pretty dormer windows and double glazed sash windows. It has seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, a spacious Martin Moore fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces and travertine tiled floor, large AGA, American style fridge/freezer and a vaulted breakfast room. Underfloor heating is run by gas and solar system, the reception hall, study and drawing room have a solid oak floor and the property even has an intercom system so when you are at the top of the house you can communicate with the lower floors.
The 100m rear garden is terraced and landscaped with an impressive pool complex, where you find a heated outdoor pool, changing rooms, gym, kitchen and sitting room. There is also a covered seating area and open fireplace, and while lounging around the pool, you can enjoy the music of your choice through the outdoor sound system.
