Ghost House Leamington Spa, CV35

about

A truly unique property, this stunning hidden house is a piece of architecture unlike any other.

The main part of this home is constructed underground, concealed beneath two reflecting pools.

At ground floor level set back behind the pools is a brutalist concrete exterior that frames a large expanse of crittal windows approx. 15m across and 3m high. A walkway between the pools is the only access to the house from this elevation.

At 5,500 sq ft of internal accommodation, this extraordinary home has 3 large bedroom suites, each with dressing room and en-suite bathroom. There is a 15 seat cinema room and internal courtyard at lower ground level. At the rear of the house is the open plan living, kitchen and dining space, with direct access to a 25m wide concrete courtyard. A huge island finished in nero marquina marble provides all of the kitchen facilities. Polished concrete floors span the whole building, raw concrete finished walls also run throughout, and inset led strip lighting features highlight walkways and help to zone the living spaces.

Cleverly placed light wells and huge expanses of glass help to bring in natural light, and 3m high ceilings throughout provides a greater feeling of space.

This property is 2 hours drive from central London, or 1.5 hours by train. There is parking for up to 10 cars.
