BPN Architects’ brutalist Ghost House has hit the market in Warwickshire for a cool £2.5m.
The partially-sunken countryside home was built in 2018 with cast-in-place concrete and is named Ghost House for its ethereal form. The top half is barely visible from ground level, and its concrete skin radiates a haunting pale light across its pools of water, which are dyed black.
Steps between the pools lead to a subterranean courtyard and the house’s vast glass-walled front façade.
Inside the brutalist property there is a full-height void between the glass wall and the main open-plan living space, dominated by a monumental kitchen island and rugged concrete floors and walls.
The three-bedroom Moreton Paddox home – on sale with Savills – scooped RIBA’s 2019 West Midlands Award. BNP Architects exaggerated its cavernous volumes via three-metre-high ceilings and recessed lighting which adds a dramatic touch.
