Fancy a change of scene? You could always rent this former coastguard lookout, converted into an airy home by the interior/architect practice, Johnson Naylor, currently on the lettings market in Dungeness, Kent.
The rent is £1,450 pcm – but could you handle the location?
Derek Jarman's renowned garden and house.
Views from the property are not for the faint-hearted: vast skies, sea almost lapping at your kitchen doors (which open onto a little terrace that leads directly onto the shingle), a lighthouse and a looming, part-abandoned power station. I quite like the drama and eccentricity of it all.
As it is a rental property, you'd want to check you could put up some pictures to warm the place up a little (or at least, I would) and there's a slight downer in the contract in that you're only allowed to be in situ three weeks out of every four.
