An Eye-catching Six-bedroom Mansion

A six-bedroom pink painted mansion complete with its own glass tower is on the market for £1.5million.

The unique Mordernist property, set across five acres of land near Great Easton in Essex, was built for steel window magnate Walter Crittall in the 1930s.

Eight decades later homeowners can now enjoy the character of the eye-catching mansion themselves.

The sprawling home boasts original features including 1930s Chinese-style wallpaper and a balcony fitted with glass orbs – which allow rays of natural light to illuminate its ground floor.

From the property’s glass tower, residents can gaze across its manicured grounds which also feature a tennis court and badminton green.

The home was built as a country residence for Crittall¬†– nicknamed ‘Pink’ – who was heavily involved in its design, working alongside London architect firm Messrs Joseph.

The impressive home is being sold by The Modern House estate agents.

A spokesman: ‘It’s an incredible home that’s Grade II listed in recognition of its architectural importance.

‘The house was the result of a collaboration between Messrs Joseph, Sir Owen Williams and W.F. Crittall in 1934, and it remains remarkably true to the original Modern design. Modernist Essex six-bed home goes up for sale at ¬£1.5m | Daily Mail Online
