If the idea of a subtle curve in your next home appeals, you might be interested in The Round House contemporary modernist property in Thornbury, near Bristol.
Actually, it looks like more than a subtle curve, judging by the photos. It could be full on circular living. It’s an interesting design though, the work of architects Russell Lewis and Lewis Foster Lewis and offering split level open plan living accommodation and what looks like something of a retro-modern finish inside, especially with that exposed stonework.
As for the space within the circle, a reception vestibule leads into an atrium with circular glass roof which leads off through ‘pillared hallways’ to the three bedrooms, one with en-suite and a family shower room. The circular entrance hall also leads to the living room with that feature Montana Leger cut stone chimney wall and Gasco hole in the wall see through fireplace.
A short flight of steps within the living room take you to a mezzanine study which overlooks the kitchen. A further flight of steps to one corner of the living room heads into the curved kitchen/dining room with double height ceilings and doors leading out to the hardwood decking outside. There is also a separate utility room and cloakroom.
The finishes listed could take another couple of paragraphs, so suffice to say, if you are interested, see the agent’s listing for the full breakdown. But perhaps worth mentioning underfloor heating throughout, walnut engineered flooring and of course, double glazing. The house also sits on what’s described as a ‘deceptively spacious plot’, laid mainly to lawn, with a long block paved driveway for plenty of parking.
If you fancy this place, it has a guide price of £550,000.
