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!!


  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!


  4. Great information. Thanks!
