Another chance to live in one of these much-loved modern constructions. A four-bedroom Huf Haus in Esher, Surrey is now up for sale.
The Huf Haus design is always popular and actually more common than you might think. I have an entire section devoted to the Huf Haus, with so many appearing on the market in recent years.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that the Huf Haus first went mainstream after one was built as part of the Grand Designs TV show. In fact, I featured the Grand Designs Huf Haus way back in 2011, one of the first houses I featured on the site.
Since then many others have been built and put up for sale, with this one in Surrey being the most recent of the latter, having been built back in 2008.
It doesn’t differ massively from most of the others, which is part of the appeal of the Huf Haus. All of the houses are built to the specification of the original owner in terms of space, layout and detailing. But ultimately a Huf Haus is a very recognisable structure.
Like all the best modern(ist) architecture, the houses offer light and space, with the walls of glass being a key selling point of the Huf Haus, along with the open-plan layout, the wooden floors and the beams, the latter often in black like the ones here. A distinctive angled roof and a terrace are often featured too, with this house offering both.
As I said, the layout is open and flexible but uses for each area tend to be fairly obvious. In the case of this house, a lower ground floor houses the boiler, WC, a small utility/cleaning room and some additional living space to use as you see fit.
Head up to the ground floor for the heart of the house. Here you are looking at an open-plan reception room overlooking the south-facing garden at the back. The adjacent dining room is ideal for entertaining with doors leading out onto the decked terrace. Finishing things off is a study and tiled kitchen at the front of the property.
The central staircase leads from here to a large light vaulted landing on the first floor. There are two double bedrooms with an adjacent bathroom, with both rooms having access to the balcony at the front of the house. A fully tiled en-suite master bedroom is at the rear of the property with its own private balcony for more of those views.
That’s not quite all as there’s a double garage separate from the house. Beyond that is your very own tennis court, as well as a well-maintained, mature garden. The entire plot covers something like 0.7 acres.
A desirable area and a desirable piece of architecture. Combined, they mean a guide price of £2,350,000.
