Beaver Street Reprise
San Francisco, California, USA

Beaver Street Reprise is a conceptually modern house that fits contextually into a Victorian neighbourhood. It contains an apartment, an office, and a split-level living area that opens onto a deck with sod roof. The building is designed by Craig Steely Architecture which is a studio based in San Francisco. Not only is it well designed and good to look at, but the professional photography also really makes it stand out from the large number of architecture showcases out there.

Huf Haus For Sale: Helensburgh, Scotland

24 Jul
July 24, 2012

A 2 bedroom detached Huf Haus for sale in Helensburgh, Scotland. Built in 2007 this is one of the more affordable Huf homes I’ve seen. That’s partly because of the location, but also because it is towards the smaller end of the Huf haus range. In many ways I prefer the smaller range as it isn’t as in your face compared to the larger ones and it doesn’t suffer from the problems you sometimes see in larger homes of trying to fill large rooms with furniture.

The reception hallway, kitchen, dining room and drawing room are all open plan and the high quality kitchen was fitted by Stil Art, part of the Huf Haus group. It also incorporates a number of appliances by Gaggenau including oven and warming drawer, hob combining both electric and gas burners, powerful extractor hood and dishwasher.

The house sits quite centrally in extensive lawns which gently slope towards a stream known as the Glennan Burn.

It is freehold and on the market open to Offers in Excess of £495,000

For Sale: Modern Contemporary House – East Sussex

20 Jul
July 20, 2012

An individual modern contemporary house set in rural countryside with mature gardens and grounds extending to approximately 3 acres. This house enjoys far reaching views across the undulating Tillingham Valley and with it being set well back off a quiet country lane surrounded by woodland you can enjoy the views in peace. There are polished concrete floors with underfloor heating throughout. Much of the internal timber and galvanised steel finishing has been left deliberately unfinished. Floor-to-ceiling glazing, skylights and large windows bring in plenty of light and give views of the surrounding gardens and woodland.

While this may sound and is idyllic it will certainly set you back a few pennies. It was on the market for £2m but you’ll be relieved to know this modern contemporary house could be yours for only £1,950,000. It does come with a swimming pool, hot tub, studio building, Airstream caravan and an American paddle tennis court (No, I had no idea what it was either until I googled it).

It has appeared in the following magazines:

American Architecture magazine DWELL.
The Sunday Times STYLE supplement.
The Independent magazine.
Coast Magazine.

The house will be listed as one of the most architecturally important houses in the country in the next issue of PEVSNER which is printed every 50 years and will be filmed for the new TV series “Inspiring Homes”.
