We love a curve and a sharp angle, which is why we’re taken with this Paul Hammond-designed contemporary, modernist property in Lavenham, Suffolk.
Hammond is a partner at RIBA award-winning practice Wincer Kievenaar, with this place to be found in the market town of Lavenham, offering around 2,857 sq. ft. of very contemporary living space, the majority of which is over a single level, although there are three floors in total.
Head up a steep driveway (hidden from the road) and you’ll notice that this house has ‘panoramic views’ over the countryside towards Lavenham’s Church of St Peter and St Paul.
Head inside and you’ll find a kitchen-diner with cherry-wood units apparently made from trees that once stood on the site, floor-to-ceiling glazing that leads to the balcony space, a master bedroom with en-suite, two further en-suite bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes and a large terrace.
There’s also a guest bedroom, shower room and utility with kitchenette downstairs (should you wish to keep guests self contained) as well as additional living space with wood burner on the upper floor, which also access tow further terraces and a ‘wildflower roof’. Outside space is plentiful too, as it sits on a five-acre site with vegetable garden, sloping meadow, woodland, pond, an outbuilding and a garage.
If all of that appeals, the asking price is £1,299,950.
