    About this property

    • The Round House is perhaps the most notable house built for the Frinton Park Estate, providing beautiful curved elevations allowing panoramic views over the east coast.

      The property is an inspiring architectural masterpiece by the famous 1930s architect, Oliver Hill. His concept in design was to create homes of distinction whilst embracing their magnificent setting. About 404 in total, which included 12 Hill designs, with 10 still in existence, were built as part of this most modernist estate of its time.

      This grade II listed building provides a strong architectural statement and offers over 2000 sq ft of innovative accommodation. Operating as the show home for the development, the property included a mosaic plan of the development on the floor designed by Clifford Ellis, which has thankfully been preserved and still has pride of place in the recently renovated home.

      The property is truly stunning with smooth, curving walls and full-height glazing to many of the rooms taking full advantage of its wonderful setting. The sitting room is positioned to the front of the house on the ground floor, along with the kitchen, dining room, reception, study, shower room and a central hallway space. Upstairs is the principal bedroom along with two further bedrooms. The principal bedroom provides an en suite bathroom with a separate family shower room.

      The sub-tropical mature garden provides a bold entertaining space with the provision for an outside kitchen. A fixed ladder to the rear of the building leads to the circular roof, hidden away from sight, providing breath-taking views. Gated access leads to a private driveway and single garage to the rear of the property. A moat sits to the front of the house with bridges reaching across to the front veranda, illuminated at dusk and making an ideal setting for al fresco dining.

    One of the most remarkable houses I have been fortunate enough to visit. The design was truly ahead of its time and the views are something to behold.
