I’m guessing you don’t have just under £3 million to spend on a house right now – but if you do, Heathwoods in Walton-on-the-Hill, Surrey could be worthy of a look.
It was designed in the late 70s by Malcolm Lovibond for a member of rock band 10CC, inspired (in the main) by the modernist architecture of Alvar Aalto and replacing a historical building destroyed by fire.
For your money, you get a huge ground floor area (once a recording studio), six bedrooms, an indoor pool complex, a large area of landscaped gardens, tennis courts, garages and as a bonus, the original four-bedroom lodge in the grounds. But above all, you get a distinctive piece of architecture that really has to be seen to be believed.
You can see images of the house via the link below. Just a shame about that price.
