Designed for his own use by  in 2004, this Alex Michaelis-designed contemporary modernist property in London W10 is still one of the most significant contemporary houses in the capital, not least for its use of a ‘sensitive’ site between two period buildings, almost invisible from the street.

The property is made up of a five-bedroom main house of approximately 3,074 sq ft over two floors, plus a separate one-bedroom ground-floor apartment of approximately 931 sq ft with its own access, with the two linked together by a lawned garden.

The upper floor of the house is primarily dedicated to an open-plan reception room and kitchen, with a separate study area and huge glazed sliding doors accessing the garden. An open-tread staircase leads to the lower floor, with an adjacent Corian slide for children. Nice touch.

There are five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a utility room and a heated indoor swimming pool. The separate flat has a large reception room, kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom. The garden has a patio off the reception room, and an extensive lawn. Eco credentials too, with photovoltaic panels and a fresh-air supply system that cut down the utility bills.

That might be useful in light of the price. It is  £5,500,000.
