Built in 1967, this beautiful modernist residence in London needs extensive renovation, but it doesn’t take a lot of vision to see clearly just how amazing it can become. We actually believe that it is pretty nice exactly the way it is right now, but we are sure that the buyer will want to make a few tweaks to enhance its natural beauty.
Called simply Winter House, it boasts the rare Grade II* listing by English Heritage, which makes it one of the most important modernist homes in the capital. Located close to the Highgate Cemetery and opposite Waterlow Park, it offers wonderful views of both sights. The building itself is surrounded by trees and has three secluded gardens on different sides, as well as a geodesic dome for a greenhouse.
Fully detached, the house still has its original interiors, which even includes the under floor heating system, the built-in storage, the kitchen and the quarry tiles. The original project included 4/5 bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room, a utility room, and spacious spaces for gathering, dining and entertaining.
With a total of 2,551 square feet of space, the modernist and minimal house is as relevant and influential today as it was when it was first built, almost four decades ago. It is currently for sale at approximately $4.5 million.
