Description

Quarrhurst is for sale with full planning permission for an outstanding and inspired architectural design that encompasses a spacious light filled contemporary house, accessed via a private courtyard fronted by a coach house with classical lines. The approved designs, by multi-award winning practice Lincoln Miles Architecture, also include indoor and outdoor swimming pools and an elevated walkway through the woods leading to a modern tree house with spectacular views to the sea. Beautiful landscaped gardens which are particularly sensitive to the local ecology have been created by Philippa Lambert of Lake House Design.

The Coach House
Constructed on the same footprint and repurposing some of original materials, the Coach House echoes the quintessential late 19th century lines of the earlier mansion, yet its building and interior layout is designed for a complete 21st century lifestyle.

Providing security, privacy and a sense of anticipation with respect to the contemporary inner sanctum beyond is just part of this building's role. It also houses a comprehensive mix of services and leisure facilities: garaging, a workshop, orangery, indoor pool, games room and store, with flexible staff or guest accommodation on the 1st floor. An outer courtyard, framed by landscaped gardens, leads to its central archway, with secondary entrance gates opening onto Quarrhurst House.

Quarrhurst House
In an enclave sheltered from onlookers, LMA's modern architectural magic is revealed, defined by bold lines and materials, with enlightened living and leisure spaces that unfold on different levels into the surrounding gardens and wooded landscape.

Quarrhurst House's architectural language is intricate yet deceptively simple. Clean sweeps of horizontal and vertical Kebony cladding frame expansive areas of floor to ceiling glazing which create a harmonious fluidity between interior and exterior. An observation tower, a nod to the romantic Victorian 'Belvedere' theme lends sculptural height and balance to the scheme, as well as sea views across the ancient tree tops. This blend of old and new materials with pavilion-based structures that glide seamlessly into each space is at once dynamic and serene.

This unique contemporary home is orientated on a sun axis making the most of the southern and western aspects of the build and drawing in light and life. The house is arranged into large ground floor open-plan living spaces with drop out zones connecting to a courtyard garden, an outdoor pool and the woodland beyond. A large raised wing nestled into the trees houses a dedicated master suite and spa.

A separate raised floating wing provides four further bedrooms, all with en suites, and a guest or family living room. The tower offers two more bedrooms and en suites, above which twin entertainment tower rooms rise into the canopy of the trees.

Ground Floor
Courtyard living transitioning into nature is central to Quarrhurst House's mood with expanses of transparency blurring the boundaries. Entertainment areas indoors and out, a snug room for cosy winter evenings and a media room to indulge in big screen escapades. A swimming pool and water features add leisure and tranquillity, enriched by beautifully landscaped gardens.

First Floor and Tower
Encapsulating views; roof terraces; party decks; living, sleeping and bathing amidst the trees; and a magical connection to the spectacular Q House, secreted away in the woods on the approach to the beach and the unspoilt coastline beyond. Zoned areas for the master suite, family rooms, guest areas, all link back to a considered mix of extensive and intimate areas for living, dining and relaxing.

Surrounding the house, intelligent environment-conscious planning by LMA preserves a 600 year old oak tree and other natural features to be viewed on the way to the Q House. This is accessed via an experiential 50 metre tree walk through the lush canopy, linked from the upper floor of Quarrhurst House.

The Q House
Set back from the beach, within the property's ancient woodlands, LMA's striking modern interpretation of a tree house appears to float, 8 metres above ground, offering an immersive forest experience and a breath-taking coastal vista. The Q House can also be independently accessed via an integral staircase from the grounds.

This visionary contemporary folly offers 21m² of space which is at once sensational and meditative, comprising a covered area with floor to ceiling glazing opening to balcony views, and a lightly enclosed al fresco platform above, which doubles the square meterage. Both areas promise seclusion and, shielded by the woods on either side, invite magical opportunities to escape into the depths of the trees for intimate dining, summer parties or creative breaks
