Contemporary House for Sale: Higham, Colchester

07 Nov
November 7, 2012

This property sums up property oddity. For sale in Higham, Colchester is this contemporary house set in extensive grounds and designed in the 1970s house by Peter Aldington. It’s in a style influenced by Mies van der Rohe.

It seems pretty pricey for what it is however, a three bedroom house with one en-suite.

The house is an important example of post-war British architecture and was commissioned in the 1970’s. Completed in 1974, it received an architectural award in 1978 from the Royal Institute of British Architects. The design is strongly influenced by the iconic Farnsworth House of Mies van der Rohe but has its own unique interior and exterior qualities. It features in a recent RIBA book by Alan Powers, and has been photographed at night for inclusion in a forthcoming volume on post-war British architecture. In the 70’s and 80’s it featured in the Architectural Journal and House and Garden.

It is a contemporary glasshouse with glass wrapping two thirds of the exterior and sits a metre from the ground on steel columns. It is entered across a bridge through a cantilevered door. The visitor is immediately struck by the sense of floating – an unrestricted connection with the grounds with their mature trees, and beyond across the valley.

The gardens are a maze that totals about 9.1 acres.

It is on the market for £1,999,000 with more details available here.
