COMING SOON / Autumn / 2022

Tucked behind the sand dunes of Porthcothan beach sits Tamarisk, a new build 6-bedroom home spread over two floors with spectacular views and an unrivalled position in front of the beach.

Surrounded by sand dunes and Marram grasses, the house sits modestly within the centre of the plot. Clad in natural and sustainable timber shingles with sawn faced timber to the ground floor, the soft material palette complements the tones of the surrounding landscape and context.

The house is split into three distinct elements all with a classic pitched roof reflecting the local vernacular; clad in timber shingles and black timber cladding to create a unified contemporary form.

Internally the layout is designed to create a central open-plan family living and kitchen space overlooking the communal terrace on the beach side elevation. Off to the side is the principal bedroom wing with all rooms accessing the central terrace. Tucked behind the main house is the outbuilding housing the surfboard store, showers and a media room dedicated to those rainy days in Cornwall.
