An interesting house designed by an architect for his own use – and inspired by giants of days gone by – the Ellis-Miller House in Prickwillow, Cambridgeshire.
Designed by Jonathan Ellis-Miller in the late 80s and inspired by the likes of Mies Van Der Rohe, Charles and Ray Eames and Craig Ellwood, this single-storey house is an award-winning design, but doesn't come with a restrictive price tag.
Entered from the carport beside the house, accommodation includes a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom a kitchen/breakfast room and an open plan central space, which is divided by a large chimney breast and open fireplace). The house also has a small lawn to the rear and a terrace with pond to the side. You are likely to get planning permission to 'sympathetically' extend the house, although previously-requested permission has now lapsed.
The village is a five-minute drive to Ely, which itself is 20 minutes from Cambridge and an hour and 20 minutes from London. That price? Offers are requested around £215,000.
