The location means this is never going to be a cheap option, but we do like the look of this Richard Horden-designed modernist property in Evening Hill, Poole, Dorset.
The one drawback here is a lack of interior shots. Not a complete absence, but we would have liked to have seen more. Still, from what we can see, this is pretty special.
Indeed, we are not the only ones saying it. This steel framed property won ‘House of the Year’ in 2004 courtesy of a BBC show of the day and in over 10 years, its impact doesn’t seem to have waned.
The house was apparently built to ‘blend into the landscape’ by using ‘a minimal variety of materials’ and of course, an extensive use of glazing throughout. That glazing also means some amazing panoramic views cross Poole Harbour towards Brownsea Island, Sandbanks Peninsula and the Purbecks beyond.
The living space covers around 2,949 sq. ft. in total, which includes an entrance lobby with cloakroom )and direct access to the garage), leading to the main living area, which has a partition wall separating the study area and doors accessing the garden and a balcony with glazed balustrades.
There is also a high spec kitchen in here and a glazed balustrade over the mezzanine to the lower ground floor.
Stairs from the living room lead down to that lower floor, which has four double bedrooms, three en-suite bathrooms, along with a shower room and a large laundry room. High end finishes throughout too, including Parlex Museum Ash Wood flooring and an Erco-designed lighting system retains the bright spacious feel.
Outside is what is described as a ‘generous’ plot, along with a driveway, secure access and a garage with additional workspace / store area.
Location and architecture on offer mean a guide price of £2,950,000.
