If you remember the house being built on the TV show, then you might want to buy this Grand Designs Roundhouse in Deanshanger, Buckinghamshire.
It has just gone up for sale, although the house has been offered for sale in the past. The house featured on the Grand Designs TV show back in 2014 (season 14) and went up for sale in 2016, selling for around £900,000.
Fast forward to 2019 and it was back on the market, with the house being listed once more this month at around the same price as that last sale. Yes, the fixtures and fittings may have changed between sales, but the architecture/design seems pretty much in line with the house from 2014, the work of Peter and Chard Berkin.
It can be found in Deanshanger, which is about 10 minutes from the centre of Milton Keynes, although very much in a rural location. You get 0.8 acres of land and the area beyond that is described as ‘large, open fields’. So you would expect a degree of privacy for yourself and your TV house.
Regular readers will know that I do love a circular design and this one is no exception. Ok, not the full circle, but you do get a lovely curve throughout as well as a central circular courtyard.
On top of that (quite literally) is a planted roof, with the house clad in Siberian Larch on the outside.
Inside is all about light and space, with full-height windows, four sets of bi-folding doors to bring the outside in, internal beams, high ceilings and open-plan living space across the curve. Pretty much everything a modern-era buyer craves. The predominantly white finish adds to the light and bright feel of this one too.
If you head out of one of those folding doors you’ll also find the circular courtyard I mentioned earlier, a patio area and a play park. Great for a party, that’s for sure, both inside and out.
A good amount of living space here as well, as you would expect from a custom build on a large plot. The main space is the general reception area, an open living, dining and kitchen area that looks big, but doesn’t seem too big if you know what I mean. Sometimes open areas like this can leave furnishings rattling around, but that’s not the case here.
Beyond that are a large utility room and all the bedrooms. There are five in total, each with its own en-suite and the master also has its own dressing room. That’s not quite it though, as film buffs will be pleased to hear that the house also has its own private cinema room if you don’t fancy a trip to the local multiplex.
That’s pretty much it really. If you work in the Milton Keynes area and fancy something unique, The Roundhouse is worth checking out if your budget stretches that far.
It will need to stretch too as this one is up for offers in excess of £900,000.
