In the early 1950s, celebrated German-American architect Mies Van Der Rohe lent his talents to what is now known as the Farnsworth House. Widely considered to be a masterpiece of modern architectural design, Farnsworth House was a simple one-bedroom, raised pavilion with glass windows that left a rather big impact on housing design in the U.S. and abroad.
Recently, a residential property that pulls heavy inspiration from Farnsworth House was listed for sale in Highham Suffolk, England. The three-bedroom home was designed by architects Peter Aldington and John Craig in 1974 and, like Farnsworth house, is a raised, steel-frame glass pavilion type building with a modestly decorated, airy interior.
The home, referred to as Wedgwood House, measures approximately 2,161 sq ft. and includes a large full-height basement for storage. The 3.35 acres property also includes walled orchard and vegetable garden that grows apples, pears, plums, peaches and more, as well as a car parking area, copse and fieldhistoric walled orchard.
Wedgwood House has been listed for £1,250,000, roughly equivalent to $1.6M USD. For more photos and information, check out the listing at this link.
