It took courage for Jane and Mark Green to build a contemporary riverside home in Kingswear, Dartmouth on the site of a loved but dated family house, but it has proved an outstanding success.

‘Mark and I are usually quite traditional when it comes to style,’ admits Jane, as she gazes out of the floor-to-ceiling windows of her contemporary home to the river beyond. ‘But having come to the decision that we wanted to build our own property here, it seemed silly, somehow, to go for a design that was a pastiche of an older style: we decided we would be brave instead!’

It was brave indeed, and on many levels. Previously, Jane’s parents had owned a 1930‘s house on the very same site for 35 years, but when they passed away, the couple were faced with a dilemma: to upgrade the tired existing property in some way - or take the massive step of demolishing it to make way for A contemporary 4-bedroom home with separate apartment.
