Stay: The Dune House

Suffolk, England
07.20.2011 | by: Alexandria

The recently built Dune House in England is a new kind of beach retreat, one where lots of angles and and asymmetrical niches have been carved out, the better to take in the home’s one-of-a-kind coastal location. The mostly open-plan, two-story house was designed by one of Norway’s top architectural firms, Jarmund/Vigsnaes Architects, and the result here is a home where every window frames a photo-worthy landscape. Located just south of the teeny-tiny village of Thorpeness in Suffolk, the five-bedroom house is built right on the beach with no neighbors on either side. Inside state-of-the-art appliances are balanced by old-school comforts like a wood-burning fireplace in the sunken living area, and in-bedroom bathtubs are situated next to windows to take advantage of both the ocean and nature reserve views.

The Details
The five-bedroom house sleeps up to nine people. Prices start at $1,225 for a four-night stay. Rent it here.

  1. The Dune House looks amazing. I’d spotted it through Living Architecture a little while ago and actually did a blog posting of my own, but had never seen interior shots like these. Even more incredible now. Thanks!! http://bit.ly/qG4ewb

     

  2. Fantastic design and build. The interior is even more grand than the exterior. It is rather pricey if only two looking for a romantic break, however I believe it is built to sleep 9 in total and therefore could be a lot more affordable should the cost be split.

     

  3. This is one of a kind design. The house looks like it´s floating above the ground thanks to the glass walls downstairs. I think it´s a perfect example that even a new innovative architecture can blend in seamlessly with the original surroundings. Really astonishing!
