Ok, I’m a little confused here. I know we featured The First Sun House recently and I’m sure I’ve seen the Third Sun House up for rent fairly recently too. So this 1930s Connell and Ward-designed Sun House modernist property in Amersham, Buckinghamshire could be number two. The agent is giving nothing away.

In fact, the agent gives pretty much no background on this place, which was flagged up to us by Colin Ross. We skimmed over it presuming it was the First Sun House with a new agent, owing to the similar finish inside. But this is a separate structure.

As we hinted at above, the exterior is stunning and screams the modernist era of the 1930s, even if it has had an extension – which at a glance, is certainly in keeping. But the inside is modern in the contemporary sense. That’s a shame, but hardly surprising. To be fair, the inside is fairly bland, dominated by the decor, so if you got the right fittings in, it might not be a write-off. But right now, it doesn’t really excite us and structure aside, we don’t see much in the way of surviving original features.

But you do get plenty of space, with this grade II-listed place done as having 90 sq. metres of inside space, including two receptions, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a roof terrace and a single-story pavilion extension. Extensive gardens are also listed as being part of the house.

Fancy it? You’ll need £995,000.
