Raised in response to flood risk and alongside a slipway, this two-storey house presents a narrow frontage to the road, with a single-storey element set further back. At first floor there is an open plan kitchen-dining-living space wrapped by large glazed sliding doors giving panoramic views across the harbour and opening onto an external deck. The ground floor has three en-suite bedrooms, a family room and workspace with large glazed sliding doors to the pool. The design, loadbearing masonry with steel and timber framing, uses robust natural materials that will weather well in the coastal location. Dark, Danish format brick contrasts with vertical timber cladding and anodised window frames. Internal joinery is all oak veneer.
