One-off sites such as this deserve something equally breathtaking. Fortunately, this self build project, inspired by historic castles and its location on the White Cliffs of Dover, combines amazing views with contemporary exterior and interior. 

This modern self build, which replaced a cold, dated property, is nestled into its sloping site, with green roofs helping it to blend into the landscape on approach.
