Award-winning contemporary home settled on the unique shingle beach at Dungeness. With 360-degree spectacular views from the many picture windows and a breath-taking outlook from the rear directly to the sea. North Vat is a wide screen oasis of calm and beauty.
Once a fisherman’s cottage, this magical black timber house (by architectural practice Rodic Davidson) has been designed for your comfort and relaxation in mind. A large double height living, and dining area opens out onto a privately fenced shingle garden and outside eating haven. An exquisite glass atrium connects two double bedrooms, each elegantly and individually detailed for your well-being. The mezzanine master bedroom (with en-suite), spanning the top floor of the house benefits from a spectacular view across the sea to France and the daily ‘surreal’ light show at sunrise and sunset, experienced directly from your welcoming bed.
Imagine sitting by the wood burning fire, underneath our thick blankets, taking in the ever-changing desert landscape or playing board games with your family and friends. Or sharing a romantic Summer dinner and enjoying the days end with the doors and the windows wide open inviting the outside in. Or perhaps, you need some space to read and to reflect in the peaceful corners of North Vat - quiet time. It is all possible here.
This exceptional house situated in one of Kent’s most inspiring nature reserves and accessible to the multiple attractions in the immediate area is a wonderful holiday destination for you, family and friends and even your well-mannered dog!
