A modernist house with two swimming pools and a skywalk through the trees could be built near Quarr Abbey, providing the plans are approved by the Isle of Wight Council.
The application has been lodged for a plot of land which forms part of the Fleming Estate. It sold last year, with planning permission for the house, with a guide price of nearly £1.3 million.

The plans for Quarrhurst were first approved four years ago. The site has now changed hands, and a new application has been lodged with further details of the house.
50m skywalk through surrounding trees
The four-storey house, designed by Lincoln Miles Architecture (who’s had two projects featured on C4’s Grand Designs – his previous home in Binstead and another for a client – as well as his latest home The Bunker in St Lawrence being featured on TV), will have six en-suite bedrooms, a gym, indoor and outdoor pool, children’s play area and a 50m skywalk through the surrounding trees, overlooking the Solent.
It also features an orangery, garage, workshop, games room and guest accommodation.
The owner, and guests, will drive through a converted coach house to reach the main building.
