You want glass? We’ve got glass, although the window cleaning bill for this six-bedroom Grand Designs property in Brighton, Sussex from Grand Designs just might bankrupt you.
Details are scarce about the design, just some pretentious nonsense about the house being individually designed and ‘inspired by a sweep of an artist’s brush’. That, we suspect, refers to the curved nature of the property’s exterior.
You’ll find the place in an elevated position to the north of Brighton, with excellent views below from that location and the design. Aside from that, the pictures really are left to tell the story.
We have the bare bones of what the house contains though. That includes six bedrooms, three reception rooms, six (yes, you read that right) bathrooms, outbuildings, a balcony, roof terrace, gardens, an indoor swimming pool and of course, private parking.
Check out the listing for more shots of the place, it really is stunning. if you want it, you’ll need to offer around £2,950,000.
Update: Thanks to those of you who pointed out this was a house featured on Grand Designs, with the man behind it being quite a character.
The build was the work of a man called Barry Surtees, a builder / artist who invested £1.8 million to create it – well up on the £700,000 originally planned.
It was a tough build and tough on the man himself, who had a heart attack and needed five heart bypasses as a result. In light of all that, we can’t begrudge the man a profit on the finished house.
