An interesting and truly individual architect designed family home in the Modernist style and built for the owner's own occupation
Fifth Acre was designed for the present owner by Modernist architect Professor Adolf Rading. According to Wikipedia, Rading was a German architect of the Neues Bauen [New Building] period, also active in Palestine and Great Britain. After finishing architecture school in Berlin, Rading, became a professor at the National Academy for Arts and Crafts. In 1926 Rading established a partnership with Hans Scharoun and in 1927 contributed a single-family house to the Weissenhof Estate exhibition. After the Nazis came to power in 1933, Rading, whose wife came from a Jewish family, emigrated to France and then to Israel. From 1943 until 1950 Rading served as the city architect of Haifa, Israel. In 1950 he established himself in Great Britain.
Today, the house is in need of some sympathetic updating and, as the property is situated in one of Clay gate's most sought-after roads, there is much scope to improve the value of the property should the buyer want to extend the property. There are however many interesting features that the buyer may want to retain and enhance.
The plot is triangular and has a frontage to Beaconsfield Road of 166 feet with the rear garden again being triangular with a maximum depth of 45 feet.
Beaconsfield Road is a sought-after location in Claygate being within walking distance of the station with a service to Waterloo, Claygate village with its excellent range of shops and local schools, notably Claygate Primary and Rowan.
