About this property

TENURE: Freehold

This stunning Grade II listed detached house was designed by the renowned architectural partnership Connell & Ward, early exponents of the Modernist Movement in the 1930's. Strongly influenced by the French Modernist Le Corbusier there are five 'Sun Houses' built on the slopes leading to the famous High & Over house. These are believed to be amongst the first modernist houses built in Britain and have featured in books, TV programmes and journals covering significant buildings of the 20th Century, together with those on Metroland immortalised in Sir John Betjeman's poetry.

An important symbol of Amersham heritage the First Sun House stands proudly with the classic striking lines depicting light and space. It has been much improved in recent years with a meticulous attention to its original minimalist design and finish but to suit a contemporary lifestyle. The accommodation is arranged over three levels with the impressive hallway opening onto an area with full height windows flooding both the hall and galleried landing with natural light. The spacious split level living room is divided into zones and the stylish fitted kitchen/breakfast room has sliding doors opening onto a private south facing patio for al fresco dining. There are three first floor bedrooms including the master bedroom, again with a large full length window, accessed from the galleried landing.

The bedrooms are served by two beautifully appointed bath/shower rooms. The winding staircase continues to the second floor and a useful study or 4th bedroom. A door opening onto the roof terrace offering a wonderful area for relaxing and entertaining with far reaching views over the roof tops towards Old Amersham and the Misbourne Valley.

There are areas of well-maintained garden surrounding the house with parking behind secure gates leading to the integral garage.
