Prestwood1

Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, built in 1966 and now Grade II-listed, Prestwood house in Great Missenden, Bucks could be yours if you have a large nest egg hidden away.

It's a very distinctive house, designed by Peter Aldington and set on a tranquil 3/4 acre plot, the house is largely unchanged today, with the exception of an added glass pavilion that contains a swimming pool. Which means you still have that large reception room with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open out onto a long balcony with distant views of the Chilterns. All of that and just 45 minutes by train to London.
