Swings and roundabouts when it comes to this 1970s Royston Summers-designed modernist lakeside property in Esher, Surrey.
Of course, we are featuring it because Lakeside Drive is always an incredibly popular area. A 1970s modernist cul-de-sac (built in 1975), it is made up of 15 houses, all built around an ornamental lake which was once part of the landscaped gardens of Milbourne House.
In terms of structure, the houses have changed little, still very much modernism of their day from the outside. It is the inside where the changes are often found.
This one has certainly been updated. In fact, it looks to have been updated more than others we have featured in the past. If you want original features, the must well still be here. But overall, this looks heavily modernised to us. Indeed, the agent describes it as ‘extensively refurbished’.
Of course, the postcode, location and architecture are key selling points. But beyond that, this place offers an open plan sitting / dining room and reception room with ‘feature glass staircase’ to the centre, along with a kitchen / breakfast room and a cloakroom on the ground floor.
Head upstairs and you will find a large master bedroom with dressing area and en suite, the latter including a whirlpool Jacuzzi tub and his and her sinks. A guest bedroom suite too with dressing room and shower room plus two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside is a double garage, outdoor swimming pool and a paved terrace area for ‘lounging or entertaining’.
Perhaps the priciest of these houses on the market of late, this one has an asking price of £2,100,000.
