For sale: 1970s modernist six-bedroomed house on Lakeside Drive, Esher, Surrey

Esher1

It might be out of reach financially for most of us, but this six-bedroomed house on Lakeside Drive, Esher, Surrey is well worth a look for its cool modernist architecture.

It was designed back in 1975  by renowned architect Royston Summers, not just in a sought-after location, but also built on the side of a lake, one of a group of 16 houses sharing this location. A location that's subject to preservation orders for both the lake and trees, as well as being a private road.

The house on offer here is said to have the best location, a spacious and substantial property that screams the era, with those six bedrooms, three bathrooms, a waterside front, gardens and a double garage. The interior mixes original with new, internal joinery of Canadian white rock maple for the former, extensive use of blue pearl granite for the latter.

Check out all the images on the estate agent's website and should your Lotto numbers come up this week, £1,895,000 is the asking price.
