The Glassworks, Madeira Lane, Freshwater, Isle of Wight, PO40 9SP
Sold Prior

As the title suggests, The Glassworks is at present a commercial site created by a glassblower. Planning Consent has been granted for demolition of the existing buildings and construction of an individual architect-designed contemporary-style house, which features a good deal of glass to maximise the beautiful views enjoyed from the site over Colwell Bay and towards the Dorset coast.

The elevated location sits above the popular beach, which features the popular beach restaurant 'The Hut'.

The hedge line in the main photograph shown is within the ownership and control of the site, therefore could be reduced to further enhance the view if desired. The site is situated a short drive from the larger town of Freshwater, with its shopping and other amenities. There is a ferry connection to Lymington, (on the mainland), close by at Yarmouth.
