The Client Brief:
The clients wanted to make this their forever home. They stated they didn’t want to ever sell it so whatever they did, they wanted to do it to the highest standard possible. The property had a chequered history during the build and subsequent alterations done before our client owned it. Much needed replacing due to poor build quality and the site itself was challenging. The clients initially asked Elaine to give her views on how to best work the existing kitchen. This soon developed into a whole house and later in other phases the grounds, access to the beach and even guest accommodation in a separate dwelling.
The clients lived out of the county, so the process was mainly by emails and reporting. Elaine created new layouts to meet the brief and add some more.
The property is total luxury and the clients have enjoyed several years holidaying in their home. Dove Rock was been totally refurbished within a carefully considered design concept which integrates both internal and external features of the property. Imaginative use of glass and space take full advantage of the magnificent sea views. The result is a comfortable and luxurious waterfront family home, entirely suitable both for holiday or permanent use. Dove Rock features a combination of the latest technology with the use of the finest quality materials and a massive attention to detail. This concept can be noted throughout the property, for example with the installation of a state-of-the-art Sonos sound system, internal Wenge doors and the imaginative use of decoration to accentuate both inside and outside features. The kitchen/dining areas, fitted with superb quality appliances and units, lead through sliding glass doors to a balcony which wraps around the entire front of the house making an unforgettable experience through a full awareness of the property’s stunning surroundings. The generous entertaining area is supported by a bar and games room which sits adjacent to the kitchen. A further private and restful space can be found on the other side of the house. Here a library with wood burner has been created making an all-season room ideal for the contemplation and enjoyment of the magnificent sea views. Magnificent and totally coastal.
