IT'S one of Hampshire's own Grand Designs.

This stylish, energy efficient and truly unique home is on the market with Fine and Country for £1,995,000.

The impressive cubist-style property is the result of the personal project of the current owners who, working in collaboration with renowned local architects Dwell Design, totally transformed a Spanish- style villa on Hayling Island.

From the aesthetic design, incorporating Cedar wood and expansive glazing, to its luxurious internal finish, nothing has been overlooked.

A first-floor timber-clad cantilevered box provides a glass balcony to the master suite. This sits on an ivory-rendered base providing the spacious ground floor accommodation.

Floor to ceiling windows throughout flood the property with natural light. Far reaching views, over Chichester Harbour and The South Downs in the distance, can be enjoyed from the roof-top terrace with its fitted hot-tub.

An annexe, currently used as a home office, also includes a kitchen and shower room and would make excellent additional accommodation.

For entertaining, there are a choice of decked terraces.

Located on the edge of the island village of Northney, and within the designated Chichester Harbour's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ivory House is perfectly placed in a countryside setting, yet within a couple of minutes-walk across fields to the coastal path along the banks of Chichester Harbour.

Northney, has a beautiful 11th Century Norman church, two village tearooms and it is very popular for its dairy ice-cream. It is regarded as the prestige location on the island with a calmer and more tranquil pace of life. Any congestion seen on the roads here is more likely to be created by ducks, horses and a variety of farm animals than modern-day vehicles.

The neighbours across the fence, a family of deer, often come from the copse out to the fields for a visit. There is a large expanse of lawn, flanked by a variety of shrubs and trees.

Ivory House is being marketed by Fine and Country.
