Designed by Russian architect Leonovich Arseny, this house’s quirky exterior sets it apart from most country architecture.
Elements of its architectural design resemble that of a steamboat, giving it a unique quality without steering from tradition so much that it does not still feel like a home.
Spitbank Fort is a sea fort built in 1861-1878 as a result of the 1859 Royal Commission, but was renovated for use as a small luxury spa hotel and retreat with 8 bedroom suites.
It is located in the Solent, a strait separating the Isle of Wight from the mainland of England and has a maritime-inspired and sophisticated interior.
