The dark secret that lies behind my £10m Grand Design nightmare

Chesil Cliff House sits on a precipice, its floor to ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the stunning North Devon coastline.

At the front is a glass-fronted infinity pool, to one side a modernist, four-storey ‘lighthouse’.

The six-bed home, between beauty spots Saunton Sands and Croyde Bay, is supported by 25 steel beams drilled into the rock below, making the building, recently put on sale for £10 million, impervious to coastal erosion.

It is astonishing — all the more so given the story behind it, one of resilience and optimism in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
