Dunescape is an eco-home finished in contemporary style right next to the dunes and beach at Camber Sands. The property is arranged over three floors, has two bedrooms, and sleeps up to six people.    It was built in 2007. Solar power provides hot water throughout the summer, geothermal heat from the ground keeps the house snug during the winter, and a grass roof soaks up the rain and minimises the visual impact of the development.

The enormous master bedroom features a king-sized bed made from reclaimed timber from Rye Harbour. It has a decadently comfortable posture-paedic mattress and soft organic cotton bed linen. A single futon is also available to turn this into a family room.    Floor-to-ceiling windows lead out onto a balcony where you can enjoy the spectacular Camber sunsets.

Dunescape is part of Royal William Square, a small beach-house development by Knox Bhavan Architects (KBA). The practice is renowned for its elegant, eco-friendly modern buildings. KBA say of their approach:  “The question always asked by KBA is ‘What makes good design?’ What makes a building? In answering this question KBA strive to make buildings that are both functional and a delight to occupy. Their buildings celebrate light and space, materials and colour, function and flexibility.”

This sustainable development provides permanent or holiday homes just behind the dune at Camber Sands. The scheme extends the sand dune into the built up area providing a shared garden between the houses.

We reckon the first thing you’ll want to know is how far Dunescape is from the beach.    So, before we give you all the detail on exactly where we are, here’s one measure we use to tell people how close we are to the sands: we call it the Dunescape Beer to Beach Test. So here is the evidence, shot from the west-facing main terrace just before sunset. Top those dunes you see in the picture and the beach and sea are before you. So it’s about 100 yards from beer to beach.

Floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead through to the large west-facing deck which catches the afternoon and evening sun. An outdoor dining set is provided Easter to October, as are large potted plants to provide lush greenery and a modicum of privacy. On the patio  below is a cold water shower to rinse off the sand after a hard day on the beach.
