To let: The Third Sunhouse 1930s modernist house in Amersham, Buckinghamshire


He designed one of the most famous modern house in the form of High & Over back in 1931. But a few years later, Amyas Connell teamed up with Basil Ward for another notable property in the same town – The Third Sunhouse in Amersham, Buckinghamshire.

This 1934 classic is available to let right now, should you be both flushed with cash and desperate to live in a grade II-listed gem of the Modern Movement, complete with plenty of period charm. If you work in London, all the better – it's only 40 minutes from the city by train.


For your money, you get a three-bedroomed house with garage and 'good sized' garden, not to mention plenty of original features, including a sun terrace and roof terrace with far reaching views to the Misbourne Valley, some exclusive in-built furniture, a spiral staircase and Crittall windows.


It genuinely is a breathtaking design and as such, doesn't come cheap to rent. If you want it, you'll be paying out £1,650 per month (£380 per week) for the rare privilege. More images on the agent's site if you want them.
