You might be hearing the name again later today, but for now, let’s look at this 1970s Frazer Crane modernist property in Wilmslow, Cheshire.
It is a stunning piece of work. Commissioned back in 1975 by the noted architect (perhaps most famous for his work on George Best’s modernist home in the early 1970s), Stratton House isn’t quite as it was, but isn’t far from the original design either.
Confused? Well, this is obviously the same striking modernist house and a property that still retains some of its original features. But as the agent point out, it has been ‘sympathetically extended, remodelled and refurbished’ in the last few years by the current owner.
That’s usually a red flag for us, but looking at the images of this one, it still has its star quality. Ok, the majority of the fixtures and fittings are contemporary, but they work well in this 1970s property, especially against the backdrop of exposed brick and white walls.
Yes, the exposed brick finishes are still there, as well as a striking staircase and walls of glass. Love that roof too, as well as the equally angular interior and the period furnishings dotted about the place. This is a house that certainly hasn’t broke with its past. You could say it has grown up.
The split level accommodation covers around 2,000 sq. ft in total, with the entrance hall opening onto a dual-aspect study area with bespoke cabinetry and oak flooring. Beyond that is a sunken TV room area.
Across the rear of the property is an open plan living / dining / kitchen with tunnel fireplace separating the living and dining areas, with the kitchen being a high end as you would expect and the whole area again featuring the bespoke cabinetry and oak flooring, as well as full height windows opening onto the garden.
Completing the downstairs space is an inner hall leading to a downstairs WC, cloakroom and a double bedroom with more full-height glazing, along with a formal living room with timbered vaulted ceiling and access to a south facing decked terrace.
The first floor is made up of two bedroom suites situated either side of the landing. The guest suite has custom-made fitted storage and a contemporary shower room. The ‘opulent’ master bedroom suite has a timbered vaulted ceiling, full length windows opening onto an additional terrace, separate WC and its own bathroom.
The outside is worth talking about too. A ‘double paved’ driveway, an integral double garage south facing walled rear gardens, the latter including a granite flagstone patio area, raised beds and a raised
timber decking area attached to the ground floor bedroom.
Luxury indeed and yours for around £1,150,000.
