It dates from 1969 and was featured in interiors magazines at the time and for years later – Ideal Home focused on it in 1975 as an exceptional house of its type. Now, all these years later, it’s more of a period piece, with unique features from the original build including bespoke doors, shelving and a geodesic domed greenhouse for example.

Accommodation includes four bedrooms, a study, living room, dining room and kitchen. There is also a large conservatory (a later addition to the building), a private drive and two separate garages. The architect has also drawn plans for an extension to the house that, subject to planning permissions, could be added to the accommodation. There’s also plenty of gardens, including lawns, a variety of mature trees, shrubs, herbaceous borders, a vegetable garden and a terrace.
