Little is documented on the architect himself, but this 1930s Eugen Carl Kaufmann-designed modernist property in Angmering-on-Sea, West Sussex is a rare surviving example of his work in reasonably original condition.
It was one of a group of similar houses built by the German architect in the area, although a bit of research suggests the rest have suffered over the years. This one, from the exterior, looks to have done well. Although the inside is very much the modern family home.
Thats not a bad thing and indeed, look through the photos and you’ll see snatches of original features to go alongside the windows, door, rear balcony railings and (I think) the rear staircase. The internal staircase is certainly original. On top of that, you have a location that’s just 400 yards from the sea and a layout that’s fairly open and bright, with large windows offering great views of the sizeable garden.
Inside space on the ground floor includes an entrance hall, understairs cupboard with boiler, cloakroom, a living room with a raised dining area, full height southerly windows and a door to the rear garden and a kitchen with door to side. Upstairs you have a bathroom and three double bedrooms, two with doors leading to the south facing balcony with steps leading down to the rear garden. There is a lawned garden to the front, along with a driveway to the garage, while the rear garden is a mix of lawn, trees and shrubs.
A house you could do so much with – and it’s available for around £425,000.
