A unique opportunity to build a stunning home atop the White Cliffs

Hope Bay Studios enjoy an unrivalled cliff top position. Working with William Matthews Associates (whose seaside expertise is evidenced by their design for the new link between Tintagel Castle and the mainland – wma.co), the current owner has secured planning consent for the construction of two exceptional modern homes, designed to make the most of this stunning location and the exceptional views.

The smaller of the two plots is now offered for sale with planning consent to create a modern home of the highest quality, extending to about 290 sq m. The proposed accommodation is carefully designed to ensure privacy, and to blend into this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty above the White Cliffs.

Once built, the house will enjoy a generous open plan living room and dining room with kitchen; a large wrap around balcony; a large home office, three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and utility space.

A swimming pool is also proposed and an integral garage for two cars.

Agent’s Note 1: The plot has the benefit of planning permission from Dover Council (14/00176) for a stunning contemporary home designed by William Matthews Associates (wma.co). The planning permission has been implemented on another part of the site, so it will not expire. The new owners will have the option of building a house to the existing plans, or a different high quality, contemporary house (subject to planning consent) in agreement with the current owner, who is building a home designed by the same architect on the adjoining plot.

Agent’s Note 2: A building which currently sits on part of the plot will be demolished before completion of the sale.

Agent’s Note 3: The brochure shows a number of Computer Generated Images (CGIs). CGIs of the proposed buildings have been superimposed onto some of the photographs.

This property has 0.75 acres of land.


The plot extends to about 0.75 of an acre and is planned to blend harmoniously with the unspoiled rural surroundings with traditional hedges etc. An incoming buyer will be able to create the gardens to their own design.
