Danish architect Jørn Utzon is famous for his design of the Sydney Opera House, with this house pre-dating that building by some years, dating back to 1962. with this con dating back to 1962. In fact, it is on the open market for the first time since that date.

Constructed largely from glass, brick and pre-cast concrete, there’s over 4,000 sq ft of internal space, including six bedrooms, two reception rooms and a huge amount open-plan living space, not to mention a large, secluded garden.
