The architect Rex Johnson is perhaps best known for commercial projects, working as part of the Ronald Ward & Partners practice and creating buildings like the Millbank Tower in London. This Rex Johnson-designed four bedroomed house in Crouch. near Sevenoaks, Kent is the only residential property he designed – and it was designed for his own use.
It dates from 1969 and was featured in interiors magazines at the time and for years later – Ideal Home focused on it in 1975 as an exceptional house if its type. Now, all these years later, it’s more of a period piece, but all the better for it in our eyes.
The house, which is found in a village between Sevenoaks and Tonbridge, is on the market for the first time since being built and packed with unique features from the original build – bespoke doors, shelving and a geodesic domed greenhouse for example.
Accommodation includes four bedrooms, a study, living room, dining room and kitchen. There is also a large conservatory (a later addition to the building), a private drive and two separate garages. The architect has also drawn plans for an extension to the house that, subject to planning permissions, could be added to the accommodation. There’s also plenty of gardens, including lawns, a variety of mature trees, shrubs, herbaceous borders, a vegetable garden and a terrace.
If you want to take the house on, the price is £697,500.
