Beach house design inspo: Waters Edge at Greatstone

Waters Edge at Greatstone is one of those houses that instantly relaxes you. The huge windows overlooking Greatstone’s beach draw you to the outside first and even on the greyest of days bring light flooding in.

Beginning its days as a relatively modest single storey house, Waters Edge has been updated and enlarged over the past year or so. Keen to make sure it retained its family feel it sleeps 15 people so there’s plenty of room for everyone. However, it’s the entertainment factor here that’s been designed into the bones of the house. There’s a games room, a huge kitchen, large comfy sofas for dropping into after a day on the beach(es) along this wild and quiet piece of Kentish coastline.

Besides the obvious design credentials in the actual building, Waters Edge has a few artistic touches that allude to its design- conscious interiors. Keep an eye out for two very special original posters from the 1930s which were designed to promote nearby Dungeness and on-the-doorstep Greatstone, especially with the then-new miniature railway. Rescued and hung in Waters Edge they recall that glamorous earlier age of travel and the ever present need to bring people to the coast to marvel at it. Previous times, present sentiment.
