Buckingham House, Ryde, Isle of Wight

The former residence of Mr & Mrs RJ Williams (co directors of R J Williams & Sons)

This is an attractive modern large detached property which was originally designed in order to maximise the views in a northerly direction out across Solent. This was achieved by design and internal arrangement concentrating on the north facing side of the property. The building was constructed by RJ Williams & Sons Ltd to a very high specification. The property is of a traditional appearance and although in a relatively prominent and prestigious location, the property and the low profile swimming pool enclosure have both been sensitively handled by using the fall through the site in a northerly direction towards the sea.
