A modern take on modernism, courtesy of The Glass House modernist property in Evening Hill, Poole, Dorset.
An architect-designed house and a modern one too, but a house that borrows much from the original modernist period. That name is no accident either – this is all about open space, with plenty of glass, which allows the house to blend into the landscape and take advantage of its surroundings – panoramic views over Poole Harbour, towards Brownsea Island and the Sandbanks Peninsula.
As for the house itself, it’s all about open plan and designed over two floors and with ‘triple layer’ sound and heat insulation. The main living area is on the upper floor, with a partition wall dividing the living room from the study, both with views over Poole Harbour. A luxury kitchen is also part of that living space via ‘a large viewing hatch’, while a glazed balustrade standing at the end of the galley style kitchen keeps you up to date with what’s going on downstairs.
You’ll also find four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, each with timber and glazed doors and their own hallway, privacy and sound insulation, along with a laundry/store, a garage overlooking Poole Harbour. accessed via a sliding glazed door and its own grounds outside. That is described as ‘rolling lawns dropping below the patio and balcony’.
Not cheap, as you might have guessed by the postcode, with The Glass House selling for £2,850,000.
