Not content with giving us on iconic modernist house in the form of High & Over, Amyas Connell also teamed up with Basil Ward in 1934 to design another notable property of the era in the very same location – The Third Sunhouse in Amersham, Buckinghamshire.
It’s available to let right now, should you be both flushed with cash and desperate to live in a grade II-listed gem of the Modern Movement that oozes period charm. If you work in London, all the better – it’s only 40 minutes from the city by train.
For your money, you get a three-bedroomed house with garage and ‘good sized’ garden, not to mention plenty of original features, including a sun terrace and roof terrace with far reaching views to the Misbourne Valley, some exclusive in-built furniture, a spiral staircase and Crittall windows.
It genuinely is a breathtaking design and as such, doesn’t come cheap to rent. If you want it, you’ll be paying out £1,650 per month (£380 per week) for the rare privilege. More images on the agent’s site.
