Land Opportunities

Unlock the potential of your land

It’s widely understood that there is a shortage of development land available, especially here on the Isle of Wight. But with the demand for new homes at an all-time high, we are always looking for opportunities to acquire prime sites for redevelopment.

We have extensive knowledge and experience in the world of planning and construction and are always pleased to hear from landowners and agents who would like to discuss the potential of a plot of land. We consider all opportunities, including existing homes with large gardens, brownfield land, agricultural land and even greenfield sites which have been earmarked for development.

For those not in the building industry, the process may seem daunting, so as a starting point we would be happy to carry out a free plot appraisal and answer any questions you may have. We will give you honest and professional advice and outline the options surrounding the development potential of your site.

Working alongside a team of experts including architects, town planners and other specialists, we deliver beautiful homes. As Island people born and bred, it matters to us that we do this with absolute excellence in everything we do and ultimately, as we and our families live here, we must be proud of what we build and where.

Princess Court 

 

History

This was a challenging brownfield site in the centre of East Cowes, formerly owned by GKN Aerospace and part of the wider SEEDA East Cowes Regeneration Project.

The site had been cleared for development by the Homes and Committees Agency – now Homes England – but this stalled during the last recession.

Captiva Homes obtained planning permission for the redevelopment and started construction of a £10 million project, funded by Homes England, in 2016.

DN Associates was contracted to undertake the build, which included a large groundworks operation with over 6,000 cubic meters of earth exported from the site, and complex retaining structures constructed due to the site’s extreme level changes.

 

The development today

The Princess Court development has 39 luxury apartments exclusively available to those aged over 55, all within walking distance of East Cowes.

Each one or two-bedroom apartment has its own balcony, and owners also have the use of the Britannia Lounge on the third floor, which has a south-facing terrace and views across the town.

Seven shared ownership apartments totalling £1.38m within the development are designated as affordable housing.

The Saunders 

 

History

This challenging brownfield site in the heart of East Cowes was formerly owned by GKN Aerospace and was part of the wider SEEDA East Cowes Regeneration Project.

The site had been cleared for development by the Homes and Committees Agency – now Homes England – but this stalled during the last recession.

Captiva Homes obtained planning permission for a development of 10 semi-detached three-bedroom houses in March 2015 and started construction in December.

The build was completed in December 2016.

 

The development today

The Saunders is a £2.2 million development of 10 three-bedroom, energy-efficient townhouses, many with sea views overlooking the Solent.

Located within the heart of the East Cowes regeneration project, this stunning development is perfectly placed for the forthcoming new marina, hotel and restaurants.

East Cowes esplanade is just a stone's throw away and is somewhere you can take in the fresh air, observe the iconic marine activity on the Solent, and witness the largest Union Jack flag in the world painted on to the hangar doors at Venture Quays.

East Cowes is famous for its shipbuilding history and was also home to the aircraft manufacturers Saunders-Roe. The aero and marine engineering company built the famous Saunders-Roe SR.45 Princess, a British flying boat aircraft that was the largest all-metal flying boat ever constructed.

Cavendish Close 

 

History

Captiva Homes bought the Bembridge site in spring 2014 and obtained planning permission to demolish the single dilapidated building on the land and build four detached five-bedroom homes. Construction began in late summer 2014, with work completed the following June.

 

The development today

Cavendish Close is a brand new and exclusive development of four luxury five-bedroom homes.

In the heart of the village of Bembridge, these modern family homes are finished in a white silicon render and Cape Cod timber cladding in Victorian grey to complement the natural slate roofs.

Double garages, parking and generous landscaped gardens with sunny aspects and private areas are a feature of all four homes.

Bembridge village is on the eastern tip of the island, and is surrounded by coastline with beautiful, accessible beaches.

The village has always been a popular destination for the country’s sailing fraternity, with a large sheltered harbour and easy access to the Solent and its approaches.
