When our client purchased Wyndcliffe as a fairly shabby bungalow five years ago the potential was obvious. The plot, located at the end of Atlantic Terrace in New Polzeath, in Cornwall was sensational. Direct seaward views over the beach & toward Pentire Point combine to create a superb outlook.
The scheme which is unapologetically modern was greeted with a mixed reaction, eventually receiving planning approval following a successful Grainge Architects planning appeal. The three storey design is partially buried into the site. Principal living spaces are on the uppermost level giving a wonderful outlook and making the most of the views. The external walling is a combination of local Cornish Delabole slate & a traditional render. Tilting the zinc-clad roof dramatically increased the panoramic view from the first floor of the house. The house generates its own energy by a combination of photovoltaics, solar thermal panels and a ground source heat pump. The project is now nearing completion & and we will upload further photographs when it is finished.
