HISTORY The Round House has been sympathetically restored to a very high standard and offers luxurious living with fabulous undisturbed views over Frinton On Sea waterfront. The beautifully presented Grade II listed modern movement home was designed by renowned British architect Oliver Hill in the early 1930's, with the concept to construct a modernist estate, incorporating, opulent, functional living, aiming at the new middle classes, looking for grandiose homes by the sea, within close proximity of London. Oliver Hills vision was to create, London's Long Island in a modernist style. Originally there were plans to build around 1100 new homes, with a modern element, namely Frinton Park estate. Sadly, this did not come to fruition and there are approximately 40 individually styled homes in Frinton-On Sea. The map of which is proudly placed in mosaic tiles within the front reception room of The Round House, which was constructed to be the show home of this wonderful venture.
SELLERS INSIGHT "Having spent many happy, family holidays in Frinton, I had always been fascinated by the futuristic, modern movement style of The Round House. When the property came to market, it's fair to say that it was in a dilapidated state, but I was ready for the challenge," recalls the current owner.
"The stylish outside space is perfect for entertaining and is reminiscent of 1930s South Beach Miami with a hot tub, wood burner and potential for outside cooking. The sub-tropical mature garden is illuminated at dusk, thus making it ideal for alfresco dining. The views from the house are superb, both by day and by night and it is still a pleasure to look towards Harwich at sunset and enjoy waking up to the sunrise over the sea."
"The local high street has a gentile quality with butchers, fishmongers, bakers, greengrocers, a newsagent where staff remember your name, and what newspapers you take, as well as local supermarkets. As an avid vinyl collector and reader, I often browse the local charity shops, one which specialises in music and one that specialises in books. Local entertainment includes the famous summer theatre, activities on the green and endless walks."
"The Round House is very much a party house, perfect for indoor / outdoor entertainment, and it's generally a very sociable space. The front veranda is the perfect setting to enjoy a glass of wine on a summers evening and roof ladders offer the opportunity for sunbathing and quiet moments of reflection."
"So, what have I liked most about living here? The views at the front of the house are stunning in both summer and winter and the property benefits from extensive green areas and the best beaches this side of Devon and Cornwall. The front room has a mosaic floor which was produced in 1932, thus giving the house its period feature and it looks as stunning by night as it does by day."
"I have loved living in a Grade II listed modern movement house and have enjoyed the benefit of the original features, including the fashionable Crittell windows. It's just a short stroll down the slope to the beach where I have had fun kite surfing, paddle boarding and kayaking. I will miss owning a wonderful piece of history, which is also a priceless piece of art, with unparalleled views, adjacent to a stunning beach and easy access to central London."
