If you like the idea of white and minimalist, you might well be interested in this Bauhaus-inspired property in Hamble, near Southampton, Hampshire.
The Crowsport Estate, dating back to the 1930s, was commissioned by Sir Thomas Lipton, with the group of modernist houses overlooking the marina now protected as a conservation scheme. Sadly, this isn’t one of those houses, but it is a rare new build in that area.
It is also in keeping with the look of the estate This is house inspired by the international style and at first glance, could pass for a 1930s original. But quite obviously this is a recent build.
The house, known as Glashaus, was designed by Andy Ramus, Chairman of RIBA Hampshire and Director of multi-award winning practice AR Design Studio. It dates back to 2009 and was shortlisted for the RIBA Downland Prize in 2010. So some pedigree.
Of course, the interior isn’t inspired by the 1930s, nor would we expect it to be. This is as contemporary as you would expect of an award winning, modern-era build. White walls, glass, premium fittings, you get the idea.
Head in and you are greeted by the glass atrium and ‘floating’ staircase with glass bannister, which takes you to the first floor accommodation.
The main living room has window to the front and side, as well as a flat glass lantern roof and two window seats. There is also a ceiling projector and recessed, electronic drop down cinema screen, as well as bi-fold doors opening out onto the balcony for panoramic views of Port Hamble Marina.
A glass walk way leads into kitchen/dining area, which offers typically high end kitchen units (see the estate agent details for the full and extensive breakdown) and a spacious dining area, with the option to expand further when the bi-fold doors are open onto the second balcony.
On the ground floor you will find the master bedroom, which was previously used as a study or second living room, complete with an en-suite, four further bedrooms and a bathroom, Completing things inside is a utility room.
Outside is a garden, mainly laid to lawn and with a garden shed and off road parking for two vehicles or a boat. Yes, this is a boat area.
£1,150,000 is the asking price if you fancy the move to this picturesque location.
