I told you we has a second one from this architect. In fact, I think the Frazer Crane-designed Bridge House modernist property in Wilmslow, Cheshire is even more stunning than the last.
It might he vaguely familiar to you too. We had to check through the archives, but we found this one listed as being up for sale back in 2011. Frustratingly, the original listing isn’t here, but it is up for exactly the same price. Although it wasn’t exactly cheap back then.
Details on the new listing are vague, but what we know is that Bridge House dates from the 1970s, the work of the much-loved Frazer Crane (someone should do a book on his work) and in a sought-after location. The original details also pointed to this being ‘sympathetically maintained’, which indicates not a great deal has changed structurally.
I would suspect as much. Although looking at the images of the previous listing does suggest modernisation in terms of the fixtures and the finish. Certainly more contemporary, but not much difference architecturally.
So open and double height living space, glass walls, balcony areas, a largely white finish and that feature curved / spiral staircase as a focal point. A wall of glazing across the rear of the property too and a bridge leading to the front door. Presumably where the house got its name from.
Of course, it’s quite a substantial property if that’s what you need. The layout includes an entrance reception / hallway with that amazing staircase down to the main living space and doors leading off to the four double bedrooms. One of those is the master with en-suite bathroom and his ’n’ hers separate dressing rooms.
The lower living room opens onto the dining room, which in turn opens onto the rear garden and the extensive (and very modern) kitchen and breakfast space. Other space includes a play room / family room, a utility room, a further WC and the family bathroom.
Plenty going on outside as well, with a rear garden mainly laid to lawn and overlooking open countryside. To the front the property, which is accessed via a private driveway, is more lawn and plants and the bridge leading to a double garage.
As we said, the price for this one is unchanged from 2011, but that’s still a hefty chunk of money. You will need around £1,350,000 before you can consider this as your next home.
