For $2M, California Midcentury Modernism ... in Britain

New, 2 comments

Built in the late 1960s by British architects Peter Foggo and David Thomas, this secluded one-story house in England looks like a long-lost brother of California's famous "case study houses," glassy, rectilinear abodes designed by leading American modernists like Richard Neutra, Charles and Ray Eames, and Pierre Koenig. Elegantly crafted from steel frame, glass, and wood, the 3,000-square-foot pad was was recently renovated thoroughly, though most of its furnishings still appear to match the era it was built.

The house, showered in natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows, opens up to a four-bedroom wing on one side, and on the other, a large open-plan space that includes an Italian kitchen, dining area, as well as a main living area that overlooks the gardens. Sitting on half-an-acre of conserved land, the property also comes with a brand-new and sparkly white garage-studio. The ask? $2.04M..
