Everything about interior of this house suits its remarkable location on England’s Dorset coast, an area that was declared a World Heritage Site in 2002. The house, one of a pair, was built in the 1880s as a holiday home.
The current owner, a designer, had dreamed a seaside home for years and had rented cottages near by for some time but never expected she would find the right property as easily as she did.It had been a guest house for many years and require a fordable amount of work to upgrade the entire building. The former double garage became a very large kitchen / dining-room, designed to have the best possible views of the sea.
The front-facing wall is entirely glass; the owner enclosed the large terrace across the facade but allowed for plenty windows, one of which is framed by a weathered teak door frame.
All the paintwork was bought or mixed to echo the colours of the local diffs and fossils, and old pallets, driftwood and scaffolding have become shelves and cupboards. Although the scene is undoubtedly English, this interesting house has a colonial ambiance about it that is relaxed , airy and supremely comfortable.
