After recently featuring a couple of vintage builds, we’re back in the land of modern-day modernism with this John Pardey-designed Cherry Eyot five-bedroom modernist property in Wargrave, Berkshire.
It’s a stunning piece of domestic architecture, both in terms of the house and the setting, the latter being a secluded two acre plot on the banks of the River Loddon and St Patrick’s stream, offering approximately 650 feet of river frontage.
The house itself is raised on slender steel stilts and as you might have guessed, is all about natural light and open space, taking full advantage of its location with panoramic views of the river and fields beyond. Some high end finishes, as you would expect in a place like this.
According to the agent, the kitchen is at the heart of the house, with Gaggenau appliances and a range set into a centre island with breakfast seating. Living space flows off it, with a formal living and dining room off the kitchen with a central modern fireplace. A larger double height living area is set at a half level below the hallway with log burner, French doors and large wooden terrace all overlooking the main lawn.
You will also find five bedrooms off the hallway, all with great views and one with an en-suite bathroom. Three of the bedrooms also have their own balconies. Other accommodation includes a further two bathroom and at ground level, an outdoor area created by the ‘shelter’ of the living room above, a wine cellar, utility room and garden store room.
More photos on the listing and if you want to live here, you’ll be looking at somewhere around £2,650,000.
