2 The Dunes, built in 1914, forms part of the earliest phase in the development of Thorpeness. Now, having undergone a full restoration, it is presented as a superb contemporary holiday home where a family or group of friends can enjoy the unique beauty of the village with it’s famous Meare boating lake, House in the Clouds, restaurants, pub and sports activities. As the name implies the sea is seconds away over the dunes!
The house has been remodelled and furnished by the owners, the directors of award winning architecture and interior design practice Project Orange.
The ground floor houses a comfortable living room, elegant dining room, superb fully equipped kitchen and handy utility room which doubles up as a downstairs cloakroom. Five good sized bedrooms are located on the first and second floors with two family bathrooms.
The owners have cleverly introduced an extremely classy beach hut feel to this contemporary kitchen with it’s navy and cream painted walls, oiled Iroko work surfaces and shelving stacked with kitchen accessories, utensils, crockery and glassware. Fully equipped, there is an oversized electric oven with five ring gas hob and extractor fan, fridge, freezer and a dishwasher. A bistro style table and two chairs as well as an opening into the dining room make this a great holiday home for entertaining and socialising
This stunning holiday home is surrounded by a pebbled garden with a white picket fence with gates leading to both the front door and back doors. The front door opens into a porch with coat hooks and baskets for those sandy shoes; whilst the back door opens into a passage leading to the kitchen with doors to the stairs and downstairs utility/cloakroom
