Astounding House Overlooking Portelet Harbour

Le Portelet House is a contemporary residence designed by MOOARC Architects. Located on the island of Guernsey, this gorgeous house overlooks Portelet Harbour. Completed in October 2011, this experimental family home will leave you speechless.

The architects tried to combine natural beauty with refined architecture, creating an amazing house. The materials used were carefully selected so that they would blend with the beach setting and meditate between earth, water and sky. Set in a rocky side location this unique residence has everything on its side to become a first class property. The project presents three timber blocks into the hillside allowing views of the surrounding landscape from all principle rooms.

The interior presents floor to ceiling windows that bathe the house in natural light. Moreover it has a luxurious aspect, that features comfortable, modern seating, tables and lamps in the main living area, all in a black color in order to accentuate the natural lighting. The focal point in the living room and kitchen is a sleek, rotating fireplace that guarantees a cozy atmosphere. The white walls contrast the black furnishings, giving it an amazing look.

Le Portelet House is a beautiful, modern home that could make anyone happy. With its luxurious features and spectacular views this residence is ready for its final curtain call.
