John Truscott used the elevated site to design a house with far reaching views over Duporth Beach and along the Cornish coast, as well as offering some modernist-inspired design, plenty of your own gardens all around for relaxing in and easy access to two nearby beaches. If that’s not enough, the house lies just two miles from St. Austell town centre.
