And now it's on the market, in case you have a spare £1,350,000 to hand.
The house sticks out, but it's pretty cool and I'm not one for uniform architecture; an adventurous structure like this, to me, is more interesting than a new house built to look old in an attempt to fit in.
Could you live in it though? It's almost so effective as a blank canvas that it'd be hard to personalise. Would bits of old furniture comfortably replace the sleek, pale pieces in it now? I remember watching Slip House on the show and particularly loving the unpretentious, affordably made kitchen cabinetry (if you look closely you can see it's plywood), but I'd be itching to stain it darker. Would that be sinful? And how about some colourful paint? A few pot plants...?
Maybe the new owners will be able to give it a homelier feel.
