With a designer garden of beach-loving plants (a beautiful transition between house and shore), a former beach dwelling has become a multi-award winning architect-designed home, with sleek decked terraces, acres of glass and a stunning south-facing panorama. It took eight months to build and, away from Camber’s caravan park, is the envy of all – make it yours! Through the hall to a light, airy, central space with wall-to-wall windows, chill-out bean-bags and heated limestone floors, and off here, a trio of bedrooms. Then it’s up the white ship-like stairs to the master suite and main living room: a sweep of oak floor, a glass-fronted wood-burner and dark blue sofas. Enjoy jaunty cushions with a nautical feel, DVDs, games and a telescope for glittering night skies. The kitchen adjoins – large, open-plan, great for sociable cooks – and if you fancy a night off there’s the Gallivant in Camber and lots of places in Rye; alternatively, a chef can be arranged. Visit bird reserves, Bodiam Castle or historic little Winchelsea, come home to superb beds, sleek bathrooms and two private terraces.
