This extraordinary Bauhaus-style home in Essex, just northeast of London, is, in essence, an untouched gem. Designed in 1934 by Messrs Joseph and Sir Owen Williams for W. F. Crittall, of famed British window company Crittal Windows, the Grade II-listed six-bedroom boasts a plethora of original details including wallpaper, built-in furniture, door handles, and, of course, magnificent steel-framed Crittal windows.

The two-story residence occupies approximately five acres and certainly stands out from its verdant site thanks to a vibrant color scheme that starts with the lavender and turquoise-trimmed facade, and continues inside, where orange, yellow, red, magenta, periwinkle, and mint accent several rooms.

Measuring 3,628 square feet, the simple, boxy dwelling features several living and reception areas on the main floor, including a colorful kitchen, octagonal dining room, and a study. A charming wooden staircase with red and turquoise rails accented by clear globe newels and encased by a glass tower leads upstairs, where the private quarters are found. Each bedroom—with hardwood floors and generous windows—has its own character. The master suite opens up to a balcony dotted with translucent circular cutouts on the floor.

The property also includes several outbuildings, a double garage, beautiful gardens including two orchards, a paddock, and tennis court. Just 45 minutes away from London by train, the house is offered at £1.5 million, or approximately $1.9 million.
