A regular development on these pages, but an example of a 1970s Royston Summers-designed lakeside property in Esher, Surrey is always popular.
This one looks very much like one that was last up for sale back in 2015, but with a slight change of decor. Nothing structurally thankfully, as this was one of the more original of the houses.
It is part of a development of 15 houses built around 1975, all of which are built around an ornamental lake, formerly the landscaped gardens of Milbourne House.
You get the best of both words here. A wonderful lakeside setting and some bold modernist architecture. As we said, this one hasn’t changed too much over the years, with the obvious exception of the finishes.
So the heavily glazed exterior looking out onto the lake, a periods open staircase in the centre of the home, some wood panelling on the walls and form that we can see, possibly the original kitchen space too.
But there have been updates, with the house generally looking fresh in terms of the decor and with updated bathroom spaces. Certainly not a time capsule, but with enough of the original design in place to make us sit up and take notice.
A lot of space too. 4,000 sq. ft. in total.
That includes an entrance hall, a kitchen / breakfast room, a sitting room with the stunning lakeside views, a family room, dining room, cloakroom, four double bedrooms including a master suite and two guest suites plus further bedrooms and the family bathroom.
Outside you get your own space amongst the nine acres of land, as well as a double garage and off-street parking.
The agent also points out that this development is ‘currently under review for Conservation status’, which is definitely good news.
If you want it, you are looking at a price of around £1,750,000.
