The Isle of Wight's spectacular Haddon Lake House is up for sale through BCM, with a guide price of £1.95m.

Described as an 'exceptional, contemporary dwelling,' it is nestled in secluded restored and designed gardens, where ‘subtropical’ planting thrives in the microclimate of the Undercliff.

A lake, woods and walled garden, once liked to Cornwall's Lost Gardens of Heligan, are all part of its external appeal.

Designed to deck out over the impressive lake - covering one third of an acre - the house spectacularly unites architecture with the landscape, by appearing to float on the water.

Haddon Lake House is in St Lawrence and boasts a light-filled interior with natural materials and glass surfaces, as well as English limestone, wood cladding and decking, slate, soft organic paint colours, and limed oak flooring.

Designed by architects Michael Rainey & Simon Clark, their resulting home is award-winning.

The site was once part of the historic pleasure grounds of Old Park, a significant Victorian marine residence dating from the 1820s.

Today, garden space includes a walled garden and contemporary courtyard. There is a diverse array of plants, including tree ferns, gingers, cannas, olives and agaves.

Haddon Lake House sits within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 650m from the beach at Binnel Bay.

On the ground floor, the main house offers an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. A separate sitting room and second kitchen, two bedrooms and a family bathroom are also on this level.

The en-suite master bedroom is on the first floor, along with a study.
