What can you say about Six Pillars? Well you can say it's grade II-listed, as well as a modernist masterpiece. It's also on the market right now.

Six Pillars was built in 1934 for the Head Master of Dulwich College and was the work of Berthold Lubetkin's architectural practice, Tecton, It has been updated in recent years under the direction of renowned architect John Winter, but is still very much one of the finest examples of modernist architecture in Britain.


You'll find it on a quiet residential road above Dulwich Woods, within easy reach of rail connections to central London and offering five bedrooms, three bathrooms, large reception areas, roof terraces and some modern-day luxury, like a stainless steel kitchen for example. It also has mature gardens and views of woodland at the rear, plus garage parking and a driveway at the front for further parking.

It's not cheap at £1.9 million, but for a house that's such an icon of an era, that's only to be expected. More images at the agent's site.
