Thorncliff is a 12 bedroom/10 en-suite former hotel standing at almost 700 square meters, over four storeys and incorporating three independent apartments, owners quarters, and letting rooms.

Detailed planning permission has recently been granted for the complete redevelopment of Thorncliff to be replaced by an unparalleled architect designed six bedroom sustainable dwelling-800 square meters of meticulously considered and conceived accommodation. Designed by innovative local architectural company Watershedd, the proposed new dwelling will unfold over three levels, capitalising on the unrivalled views, each perfectly framed by the bronze wrap which directs and curates the view from each space. The house has been designed to submerge into the 0.35 acre plot so that even from the entrance approach, views over the property and out to sea are uninterrupted.

Five first floor en-suite bedrooms will be incorporated into the main house with a sixth residing in ancillary accommodation together with a board room. A huge open plan living space will spread across the ground floor accommodation with the lower ground floor home to a gym, cinema room, sauna and pool.

The key design concept to this unique and fascinating proposition was to create a layered property that responded to the slope of the land, blending into the landscape yet maintaining the ocean views. Materialistically, a cantilevered timber clad cube will project over the main entrance, glimpses of the house seen through vertical slatted timber, shuttered concrete forms, bronze sheet metal and a bio diverse green roof are all incorporated into the scheme. A combination of ground source and air source heat pumps are proposed along with a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system. Services to Thorncliff currently include mains electricity, water, gas and drainage.
