We have featured a number of stylish houses in Esher, including at least one on this development. But we think this 1970s Royston Summers-designed modernist property on Lakeside Drive, Esher, Surrey is perhaps the most faithful to the original design.

Not that it’s just a step out of the 1970s. For parts of this 1975 build, that is true, not least with the kitchen and the internal joinery of Canadian white rock maple. But other parts have been updated, offering a nice mix of the old and the new.

You’ll find the house on a quiet no-through road and like the other 15 houses, it sits around a lake that was formerly a part of the gardens of Milbourne House. The site covers nine acres, which also includes a collection of distinguished trees, many of which are subject to preservation orders. In short, peace and quiet, with some stunning views – at a price, obviously.

For that asking price (we’ll come to that), you get the largest plot on Lakeside Drive and ‘arguably’ the best lake views, not to mention a total floor area of over 4,000 sq ft over two floors, which includes five/six bedrooms, an impressive living room, a family room, a dining rom, kitchen/breakfast room, an entrance hall, two bathrooms, a dressing room and an attached double garage.

It really is a stunning build in an equally impressive location. £1,895,000 is the asking price.
