It was built by an architect for an architect. But sadly, we don’t have the name of the person behind this five-bedroom contemporary modernist property in London SE26. If it id you, let us know and we will put things right.
It only dates to 2013, with this U-shaped house sitting in a secluded location in the Dulwich Wood Conservation Area. That distinctive shape creates a central courtyard, with its ‘glass walls’ allowing morning and afternoon sunlight to work its way into the inside living space, creating an open, light and bright living space throughout.
On the flipside, a 40-metre long blackened Siberian larch timber wall screens the house from its neighbours, creating an opposing ‘fortress-like feel’. Hence the name of the house. It’s an eco-build too, with the building designed to improve thermal and acoustic performance and reduce the carbon footprint.
Oh yes, the house also offers an incredibly hip and contemporary living area too, which is an important as any of the above. Good amount of living space too, which is listed as including five bedrooms, a kitchen area, dining room, three bathrooms, an office space, utility room, dressing room, storage sections and a cloakroom.
This is one of those houses where images say it so much better than words. So do check them out. If you like it, you’ll need around £1,950,000 to buy it.
