This Grade II listed, four bedroom detached home is situated within a sizeable plot on Chesterton Road. It truly is a piece of architectural brilliance, with striking features throughout, the main being the large living room/diner with vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows allowing for enormous amounts of light to flood through the house. This unique home was designed by Professor Marcial Echenique of Cambridge University and was originally built in the early 1970s with the main aim of creating large living space on a budget, with the whole project costing only £7,200 which, even at the time, was an astounding figure! The internal accommodation comprises open plan living throughout the ground floor, with separate study, shower room and kitchen. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
