Just In: our latest country homes for sale
We’ve brought on quite a number of country homes for sale recently and we wanted to share them with you in one place. Let the daydreams of a life outside of the city begin…
Elephant House, Herne Bay, Kent
A more endearing house we are yet to see. This whimsical abode on a stretch of Kentish coastline at Herne Bay has been given the moniker ‘Elephant House’ because of its hide-grey render. More fun is to be found inside, where the layout unconventionally sets the bedrooms on the ground floor and expansive living space above, where views out to the sea are found.
The Quell, Haslemere, Surrey
This house, designed by a former president of the RIBA in 1985, makes use of its elevated position on the South Downs with a single run of south-facing sliding glass doors, offering unparalleled views across the landscape. ‘It almost looks like Tuscany,’ said our in-house photographer Elliot Sheppard when he visited.
When looking for country homes for sale, a lot of people have one top priority: easy access to the sea. For those in that camp, this charming house in Norfolk is located within a ten-minute walk to the coast, with easy access to the award-winning Norfolk coast path and two blue flag beaches.
Gilcombe, Bruton, Somerset
This rural idyll is comprised of a five-bedroom house, an annexe, several outbuildings and a barn. It’s all set in five acres of gardens, which were landscaped by Urquhart & Hunt, renowned for their work on nearby world-renowned gallery Hauser & Wirth.
The Cowshed, Lenham Heath, Kent
We’re big fans of the angular, sharp-lined silhouette of this contemporary zinc-clad barn, located at the foot of the Kent Downs. Showing sensitivity to the local agricultural vernacular, the barn is a sympathetic addition to the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which is well-known for its cycling and walking opportunities.
Quendon Way, Frinton-on-Sea, Essex
British Modernism made its mark at Frinton-on-Sea between 1934-5 in the form of 35 houses designed by architects like Oliver Hill, Wells Coates and Frederick Gibberd. This house retains many of its original features like parquet flooring throughout and sightly curved windows that feed in lots of natural light.
