A past design is one of the most popular we have featured on the site. So I’m sure there will be a lot of interest in this John Winter New Hill modernist property in Medstead, Hampshire.
That previous house was a grade II listed house dating back to 1967. This one is more recent, but every bit as striking.
New Hill is described, quite rightly, as a ‘unique’ family home, completed around 15 years ago, although the frontage hints at a much earlier build. That’s obviously balanced out by the interior, which is as contemporary as anything on the market, with its open living space, beams, slate floors and clean, white finish throughout.
In fact, the main open plan living / dining area is particularly striking, with its large expanse of windows down three sides offering great views over the 1.87 acres of countryside that surround this place.
The main part of that room is used as a formal sitting room, but is flexible enough to be used in other ways too. The dining area runs in front of the kitchen, which is made up of a range of floor mounted units with cupboard and drawer sections, all the expected appliances. A doorway from here leads through to the utility/boot room with further appliances and storage.
Off the sitting room area, sliding doors open onto a raised terrace, with more doors along the side also opening up to the garden to bring the outside in. A sloping hallway ‘taking the topography of the land’ leads down to the master bedroom, with dressing area, en-suite shower room and access to a decking area.
The remaining three bedrooms are at lower ground level, one with an en-suite bathroom, and the remaining bedrooms sharing a family shower room. The space is completed by a study area, a studio with dark room and a further shower room, which the agent points out could be self-contained if you wanted to rent the area out.
As I said, plenty of land to play with, which includes a long driveway, a parking and turning area at the front, the principal gardens and lawns.
A lot of house, a lot of land and a big-name architect. No surprise to see a guide price of £1,350,000.
