If the name rings the bell, it’s perhaps because you recall the stunning house in Maidencombe, which was featured on these pages back in 2015. Up there with it is the equally stylish Stan Bolt-designed modernist property in Sidmouth, Devon.

Thanks to Mark for flagging up this place, the work of the Brixham-based architect and the recipient of awards from RIBA, not to mention the Daily Telegraph Contemporary House of the year gong.

Amazingly, this is actually used as a second home, as well as a ‘profitable’ holiday let. So there options on that front if you have the money to lay out as an investment. But it is a lot of money.

I would guess the next owner would look at this as a first home and for good reason. This is a stylish and spacious property in an equally stunning location.

An incredibly striking angular exterior, with the white and timber finish, plus the glazing that hints at what it a light / bright interior.

Over 2,000sq. ft. of space inside, with the main ground floor rooms open plan and with the floor to ceiling window for panoramic views to the east over the Otter Valley and to hills beyond. Over the dining area is a full height ceiling to the roof with a balcony space overlooking it.

Beyond the open reception is the kitchen, which is as high end and substantial as you would expect, with a utility room offering more space for the washing machine and tumble dryer.

A side hall takes you to bedroom two, which also has a French door to the garden, as does the dual-aspect bedroom three. A wet room and WC completes the ground floor space.

Head up the cantilevered stone stairs and you access the first floor galleried landing with that glass-fronted balcony overlooking the dining area and kitchen. Outside of that, the first floor is totally made up of the master suite, with balcony space, an en-suite bathroom (accessed by a glass floor) plus a large dressing room with extensive shelving and hanging space.

Head outside and you take in more than the air.

The property is accessed by electric gates, with a paved driveway with parking leading to a double garage, which also has workshop space and a storeroom at the rear. Slate steps take you to the house and from the house to a timbered decking area, further decking areas and the main rear garden. The land covers around 0.26 acres.

Painfully modern but very cool, it is on the market for offers in excess of £900,000.
