Radar is built on the site of two timber sheds which were used by Decca from 1961 to 1984 to test new radar technology. Decca was the company behind the legendary Decca Records, but also branched into electronics.
Architecturally, the building references the local vernacular of industrial buildings located on the shingle beach. The interior expresses the language of a simple timber construction, layered with beautiful finishes, a soft palette, and vast windows framing the uninterrupted views to the sea, creating a warm, comfortable interior connected to the landscape. Radar’s considered design covers every detail from crafted furniture, Miele appliances, a superbly equipped kitchen, to a goose down duvet. The open plan space is underfloor heated and includes a cosy sitting area with a wood burning fire, dining space and kitchen, and a raised bedroom area (which sleeps 2). Every comfort has been considered as the experience continues in the two bathrooms. The shower room has a heated wet floor and rain shower, with a view to the sea from the basin. The hemlock lined en suite has a Finnish dry sauna and circular sunken bath for two with waterfall tap.
The property is pet friendly and has outdoor space with two decked terraces – East facing to enjoy the sunrise, and West facing to watch the sunset.
Radar is the latest interior architecture project by Fiona Naylor, of Johnson Naylor. Fiona Naylor has converted other properties in Dungeness into holiday homes which are also available on Mulberry Cottages, including Pump Station, Coastguard Lookout and Fog Signal Building.
Radar sleeps 2 people. The property is pet friendly and offers free parking.
