Dungeness, Britain's only desert, with its wild landscape, is intensely peaceful, there are dramatic views in every direction. Coastguard Lookout is a warm and welcoming place converted by renowned interior architecture firm Johnson Naylor who retained the original 50's structure whilst cleverly transforming the interior using the highest quality fittings and materials, crafted so that it sensitively retains echoes of it's former function overlooking the Channel. The unique layout will appeal to those looking for something cosy, contemporary and different.
The tower offers much of the creature comforts, holiday makers have come to expect, including underfloor heating, beautiful lime stone floors, Wifi, and a log burner in the sitting room, ideal for those crisp winter breaks, watching an endless procession of ships on the horizon through the panoramic windows, with on clear days glimpses of Cap Gris Nez, the closest point of France to England.
Built originally as a HM Coastguard radar monitoring station for shipping in the Channel, when this role was no longer needed with the advent of GPS, the building was converted as a studio and weekend home for a growing family, into this contemporary home, the perfect location for a holiday away from the routine and stress of modern life.
