House and location in perfect harmony, courtesy of this Michael Manser-designed modernist property in Haslemere, Surrey known as The Quell.
Not that recent though. The house is around 30 years old, so we would guess mid-1980s. It probably looked a little different than this back in the day too, as this house has been renovated more recently. In fact, we have spotted a Telegraph piece from earlier in the year, which suggests that the shell of the building generally staying as it was (with the exception of a slightly larger first floor), but with the interior being completely renovated at a cost of around £1 million. That’s some update.
The images of the end product show just where that money has been spent, with clean, stylish and contemporary finishes throughout, working well with the frame of a timeless modernist structure, complete with floor to ceiling glazing and open-plan living spaces. Good design rarely dates.
Inside space includes a drawing room, hand-built bespoke kitchen / dining room, second sitting room and three bedrooms on the upper floor, with the ground floor offering two self-contained bedroom suites (one with its own kitchen), a snug and study.
Of course, the upper rooms are the ones to spend time, all taking advantage of the stunning country views, which can also be accessed by the gallery area at the front of the house. But there is plenty to enjoy away from the main house too.
You have obviously noticed the secondary accommodation here, which is ideal for guests or a very elaborate work space (it is currently a music studio). Alternatively, wind down in the pool, which has its own pool house with shower room, kitchenette and plant room.
Luxury living for sure, with a price to match. That price is £3,400,000. Well, with a seven-figure renovation, it was never going to be a cheap option.
