“This home is a true one-off”.
So stated Mid Century Magazine when describing Seaside Modernist, an awe-inspiring, designer Bridlington home with sweeping sea views and an absorbing ‘time capsule’ feel.
Built in 1954, and boasting three modish double bedrooms, Seaside Modernist’s architect was given a simple yet specific brief: to make the most of the jaw-dropping North Sea views. With full height windows running the entire length of the upper floor lounge, you’ll be able to judge his efforts first-hand, as you gaze dreamily out to the cliffs of Flamborough Head.
Each room is relaxing, light-filled, and styled with well-chosen vintage pieces that complement the home’s modernist design throughout (it helps that owners Natalie and Steve are both designers themselves!) Meanwhile, stand-out features including natural wood panelling, original built-in furniture, and a striking open-plan staircase pack a real ‘wow factor’ punch.
You’ll be greeted by a double-height stairway, which leads in to a sociable, open plan kitchen and dining area you’ll find it hard to tear yourselves away from. Two garden view double bedrooms can be found on this floor, too, along with a retro-styled bathroom.
Head up that gorgeous staircase to the aforementioned lounge, complete with a wood-burning stove and plenty of squishy seating, a charming sunroom-studio space (ideal for creative types, or those who really have to catch up on work while they’re away), and a third bedroom with shimmering bay views.
When you’re not admiring the shifting sea, or watching a movie on the large flatscreen TV, you can always grab a book from the well-stocked shelves and head for the sanctuary of the large, mature garden. Blissfully private and tranquil, you’re sure to feel at one with nature, and yourself.Keep reading
