This is a stunner, with this Piers Smerin-designed contemporary modernist property in Crowborough, East Sussex also having the additional selling point of sitting in a 22-acre estate.
That amount of peace and tranquility will be a massive selling point, as will the short drive to Crowborough train station and its access to London. But the architecture is the real star of the show here. It is an impressive three-storey wood-clad house with a large outdoor terrace that connects the internal spaces with the outside. Clean lines, open spaces, stark concrete walls and an exterior that works with the environment around it. we love it.
The first floor includes five bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the master bedroom also offering a walk-in wardrobe and balcony. The second bedroom leads out onto a balcony with great views to the rear. The corridor features window seats and built in book cases and the entire ground floor is given over to a massive open plan living / kitchen / dining room that features an island unit, an open fire and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors connecting to a deep terrace.
The lower ground floor is described as a ‘service area’, with a utility room, plant room, wine cellar and shower and changing rooms that link to the pool area. The pool can either be used open or with the sliding doors shut, an enclosed room.
Not cheap at £2,500,000, but if you are on the receiving end of a windfall, you know where to look.
