I’m getting the (made up) word ‘Huf-esque’ about this place, but it is actually a Gn2 Architects-designed contemporary modernist property in Danbury, Essex.
Described by the agent as an ‘award-winning’ property, this five-bedroom house with large garden is in the centre of the village of Danbury, designed by Gn2 Architects in collaboration with Longstaff Associates in 2006. It’s certainly an eye-catching build.
Glazing dominates this place, with the (almost entirely) glazed facades creating a very light and bright house. The only downside is probably the window cleaner’s bill. Talking of glass, it is said to be Pilkington K (thermal) glass which adds to its energy efficiency.
As for space beyond that glass, you are looking at a ground floor built around a hallway with an open-tread oak-finished stair case leading to the first floor. To one side of the hall are two reception rooms, the larger one having views out across the garden, but both having oak flooring. On the other side of the hall is a kitchen / dining room with high end appliances and limestone flooring. There is also a WC, utility room and office space on the ground floor.
Head up to the first floor and you will find five double bedrooms, the largest of which is a master bedroom with a dressing room and en-suite bathroom. This room also has its own balcony with views over the gardens via the full-height glazing. The second bedroom also has an en suite bathroom, with a family bathroom also on this floor.
Outside, you are looking at what is described as a ‘generously-sized’ garden, along with a garage and an off-street parking area.
Fancy it? The asking price is £1,150,000.
