Here we are in sunny Amersham and a Grade II listed, 3-bed modernist classic. The question is: can you guess the price?!
It’s been far too long since I’ve had a snoop around a grand design so here we are in sunny Amersham, Bucks – just think of me as a less grumpy Kevin McCloud. Welcome to Highover Park, a pristine Grade II listed, three-bedroom property, designed by Amyas Connell and Basil Ward in the 1930s – and one of the finest examples of modernist architecture in the land, no less. The question is: can you guess the price? Let’s go in and have a poke around. Shoes off at the front door please, you with the muddy stilettos!
The extensive open-plan living space is all white walls and wooden floorboards, and so light, bright and airy, I’m wearing my sunglasses indoors à la Anna Wintour.
The glossy modern kitchen, with marble worktops, is housed in a high-quality extension that was added in the 1970s.
It opens out onto a sun terrace, where, if I lived here, I’d set up camp from April through to September. Glass of chilled rosé for the lady on the laptop please!
Upstairs there are three bedrooms. Here’s the elegant master, another room that’s flooded with sunlight.
I adore this serene, all-white bathroom, although there’s no way my disgusting kids are coming in – they can bathe in a bucket in the garden.
And here she is from the back. Nice, eh? Check out the private balcony at the top – somewhere to hide from the family and soak up some rays. So how much do we think this boxy beauty is going for? I’ll adjourn to the kitchen terrace with my rosé while you have a ponder. Actually – spoiler alert – you can find out here, and book in for a viewing should you fancy it.
