SINK IN / Recline / UNWIND VENTURE OUT TOWARDS Sea and Sky

Embedded in the rolling hillside overlooking Mawgan Porth beach, Dynargh is a private seaside retreat, sensitively designed to embrace the natural contours of the land while maximising views out over the rugged Cornish coast.

From the approach, the house appears as a trio of beach hut inspired cabins, while the ocean-facing facade reveals a further two stories, clad in a combination of locally sourced stone and black timber.

The farthest left of the cabins hosts a self-contained guest annexe, with a bathroom, kitchenette and large double bedroom leading out onto a private balcony. Access to the main dwelling is gained via a set of central stone steps, which offer only subtle hints of the home’s stunning views until the front door opens to reveal the full panoramic expanse.

Once inside, a reception area guides you into a large contemporary living space, with uninterrupted terrazzo concrete floors suggesting a seamless transition between kitchen, dining and lounge areas, each oriented towards the large ocean-facing windows.

“Sensitively designed to embrace the natural contours of the land while maximising views out over the rugged Cornish coast”

A single internal staircase leads up to the second floor and a pair of spacious bedrooms, each with access to a large shared balcony, set back a little to maximise privacy and preserve the aesthetics of the western elevation.

Entering the garden from the first-floor living area, steps trace the gentle slope down to the lower ground floor, where indoor and outdoor showers combine with a dedicated surfboard room to create the perfect entry point after a day at the beach and a guest bedroom, kitchen and cinema room complete the space.
