First up, because of the architect, most famous for his own Underhill earth house in Holme and secondly, because this house, built in 1967, is up for sale for the very first time. As you might expect, it means this bold design is packed with original features, some in need of an upgrade, others (like the mezzanine level over the main living area and the picture windows overlooking local woodland) likely to be key selling points.
