A Grade-II listed home by Hungarian architect Erno Goldfinger has come on the market in the Surrey village of Windlesham. Built for businessman Jack Perry in 1969, the Teesdale House, as it’s called, is the only post-war private house in original condition by the larger-than-life modernist, who was known for his brutalist towers throughout England—and his temper. (Ian Fleming named one of his James Bond villains after him.)

In contrast to his stark concrete buildings, the 3,319-square-foot single-story home is characterized by a post-and-beam construction, timber cladding, walls of glass, and a flat roof—all arranged around a central conservatory.

The flowing layout incorporates an open-plan living-dining-kitchen area with full-height windows overlooking the countryside, an office with two glass walls, and the aforementioned glass-box conservatory, which links the common areas with the private accommodations. These include four bedrooms, one of which is an ensuite master with views.

Located on four west-facing acres, the property comes with some impressive greenery too, like, mature trees, hedges, and shrubs, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor entertaining. There’s even a terraced water fountain at the front of the house; an inviting sight, to be sure. It’s available through Savills for 3 million GBP, or about $3.6 million.
