Situated in a conservation area with stunning panoramic views over the River Dart estuary, this modern new build home subtly blends into its surroundings. Its mass is broken down and staggered over a number of single storey blocks and terraces which are set into the steeply sloping landscape and historic rubble stone walls characteristic of the area.
One enters the building via a sunken landscaped courtyard, before descending to a large open plan living area with wrap-around glazing and an extensive deck featuring dramatic views. A master bedroom perches on top, oriented toward the mouth of the River Dart and the twin castles of Kingswear and Dartmouth. Additional bedrooms are located in a connected rubble stone block set into the wall, with hidden ancillary accommodation below the deck.
Viewed externally, the house is designed to blend into the landscape, almost hidden from view, whilst from inside it feels as though you are standing on the deck of a ship floating above the water.
