About this property

  • This Bauhaus-inspired property was designed and built in 1960 by David Addey, RIBA, an architect and recognised watercolourist. It became his much-loved family home for the next six decades.

    Gambons is a detached property that offers a spacious and interesting layout with exciting possibilities for updating and enhancement. The current configuration provides family accommodation, space suitable for working from home and valuable storage areas on the lower floor. There is also a garage, with attached carport, and a sizeable outbuilding that has been used as a workshop.

    Centrally positioned on its generous 0.6 acre plot, the delightful mature gardens are a real asset and the house enjoys views across countryside to the south.

    The house itself extends to over 2,300 sq ft (excluding the undercroft storage space) and may offer scope for expansion, subject to planning permission.
