A stunning Grade II listed Modernist detached house


Highover Park is a cul de sac situated towards the bottom of Station Road that links the historic Old Town (0.3 mile) and Amersham on the Hill (0.5 mile). Amersham Old Town hosts a picturesque street scene of period buildings, chic boutique shops as well as a number of coffee shops and restaurants including the Kings Arms and Crown Hotel. A large Tesco food store is also conveniently close by. Amersham on the Hill provides multiple shopping facilities including Waitrose and Marks & Spencer food halls as well as the Metropolitan/Chiltern Line station providing a London commuter service to Baker Street/Marylebone respectively. The area is renowned for its excellent schools including Dr Challoners Boys School and the High School for girls.


The First Sun House is a stunning Grade II listed detached house designed by the renowned architectural partnership Connell & Ward, early exponents of the Modernist Movement in the 1930's. Strongly influenced by the French Modernist Le Corbusier there are five 'Sun Houses' built on the slopes leading to the famous High & Over house. These are believed to be amongst the first modernist houses built in Britain and have featured in books, TV programmes and journals covering significant buildings of the 20th Century, together with those on Metroland immortalised in Sir John Betjeman's poetry.

An important symbol of Amersham heritage the First Sun House stands proudly with the classic striking lines depicting light and space. It has been much improved in recent years with a meticulous attention to its original minimalist design and finish but to suit a contemporary lifestyle. The accommodation is arranged over three levels with the impressive hallway opening onto an area with full height windows flooding both the hall and galleried landing with natural light. The spacious split level living room is divided into zones and the stylish fitted kitchen/breakfast room has sliding doors opening onto a private south facing patio for al fresco dining. There are three first floor bedrooms including the master bedroom, again with a large full length window, accessed from the galleried landing.

The bedrooms are served by two beautifully appointed bath/shower rooms. The winding staircase continues to the second floor and a useful study or 4th bedroom. A door opening onto the roof terrace offering a wonderful area for relaxing and entertaining with far reaching views over the roof tops towards Old Amersham and the Misbourne Valley.

There are areas of well maintained garden surrounding the house with parking behind secure gates leading to the integral garage.
