KENSINGTON PLACE, LONDON

modern house - TGJ.01

This astonishing modernist house is on the market only for the second time in its history and it is one of west London’s most unique and recognisable properties. Built in 1967 by the architect Tom Kay, the property was commissioned by an artist and opera singer who wanted private, yet spatially dynamic, living quarters. Its distinctive cylindrical stair turret towers above other buildings in the area, giving it modern majesty.

SUNRISE HOUSE, MUSTIQUE, ST VINCENT AND GRENADINES

modern - TGJ.04

This elegant new house built upon the hillside on the tropical paradise island of Mustique has been inspired by 19th century colonial design as well as more modern fashions. It has its own beach, a freshwater rock pool and a bountiful coconut grove. Within the landscaped tropical gardens an infinity swimming pool and tennis court can also be found.

DRAX AVENUE, LONDON

modern house - TGJ.03

Situated in sleepy Wimbledon, south London, this astonishing sixties house has never been sold before. The grade II listed building could easily be described as brutalist but it is unique amongst Wimbledon’s measured, traditional architecture. Despite its heritage status the current owners have secured planning permission for substantial extension.

£2,650,000 from Savills

 

NOSUCH BAY, ANTIGUA

modern - TGJ.05

The stark simplicity of the home is what first strikes you when you first set eyes on this bright Caribbean property. The house has some extraordinary features; triangular windows, grooved ceilings and roofs that come in an array of geometric shapes. This is a perfect property for those who enjoy simple – yet elegant – design.

IBIZA, SPAIN

modern - TGJ.03

This clifftop house overlooks a protected bay, with a view of one of the world’s best sunsets. The property itself is distinctly Spanish and has a square, minimalist design with balconies and viewing decks on three levels. A massive infinity pool dominates the space in front on the house and will provide an inviting coolness on those scorching Balearic days.
