There is currently a rare opportunity to rent one of the most admired private residences built in Britain in the 20th Century.
The Turn is a two bedroom property that forms part of a trio of houses designed and built by Peter Aldington in 1964-67. Described by English Heritage as “Aldington’s answer to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin”, all three house have Grade II* listing.
The house comprises a large sitting room with open fire, dining room and adjoining kitchen, unusual double-height bathroom, two bedrooms and an attic room.
Original features include terracotta tile and wooden floors, built-in seating, built in wooden wardrobes and kitchen units and the 1960s oven. Two pairs of double glazed doors open from the living room and dining area open onto a sunny, walled courtyard.
The house has its own rear garden, which is maintained by Turn End’s garden team.
This is a rare opportunity to live in this unique, Grade 2* post-war property. It is a private and secluded home, but residents are welcomed into Turn End’s creative community.
The property is being marketed by Julian Carthew Sales & Lettings. Please contact the estate agent for more information and to arrange a viewing:
