A converted army barracks on the Kent coast offers a unique perspective on the pretty town of Deal, thanks to its amazing observatory. The home of Sue Prichard, curator of textiles at the Victoria and Albert Museum, occupies what was once the gymnasium of the late 18th-century cavalry barracks. The four-storey house is one of ten created within the Grade II listed building, and includes the impressive original glass cupola that gives a 360-degree view over the sea, local rugby pitch and town. “The light is wonderful for sewing, but the views, changing weather and stargazing are fabulous,” says Prichard.
