The plans for the house by the husband and wife architect team were actually drawn up in 1966, well before the eventual construction in 1977. Indeed, we would have guessed at this being a ‘60s design without knowing the details. It definitely has the look of a slightly earlier property.

Some lovely detailing too, including exposed brick, teak floor tiles, high ceilings, period staircase and most unusual of all, an external spiral staircase leading down to the 100ft garden. That garden itself is worth a mention too, not just because of the space, but also with the distinctive detailing.

Indoor living space is over three floors. The ground floor hosts a wonderful open plan kitchen / dining / reception with floor to ceiling glass windows and doors. So plenty of natural light and the option to take the party outdoors. You will also find a utility room and cloakroom on this floor.

Head up that wonderful staircase and you reach the family room with views over the reception space below, along with an adjoining bedroom and study, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom opens onto a roof terrace, with views over the garden and beyond.
