Description

Square One is architect designed inspired by the American architect, designer, writer, and educator Frank Lloyd Wright. It's construction dates back to 1968 and is offered for sale for the first time since being built more than 55 years ago. The property occupies a magnificent site forming part of the American rock garden to the original house known as Moreton Paddox. The property is approached over a tarmacdam drive leading to a double carport with ample parking. Steps lead down to a beautifully planted sunken brick paved garden with access to the main front door. The property is entirely single storey with dedicated zones for reception areas, kitchen/domestic quarters and a bedroom wing. The architectural styling is unashamed of the period and unusually hasn't altered since being first built. Period styling includes typical features such as exposed brick, flat roofs timber clad ceilings, large plate glass windows allowing light to flood in and the original kitchen and coloured bathroom suites. Square One represents a wonderful opportunity to modernise and alter an interesting property of real architectural merit in a special landscape built in a revolutionary decade that challenged traditional thinking. In brief the accommodation comprises: The entrance porch leads to a cross passage hall. The main reception space is semi open plan with dedicated areas for sitting and dining. The sitting area has a contemporary designed wood burning stove whilst the dining area provides access to a partly covered terrace with aspects over the main garden. The kitchen is also semi open to a breakfast area again with a door to the garden of the south side of the house. The kitchen leads to a utility and former pottery studio. A study off the hall provides a private space to work. The bedroom wing contains four bedrooms and two bathrooms (one ensuite). Situated in an enviable position on the edge of a hillside the garden has been designed to take full advantage of this special setting. The upper terraces adjacent to the property are connected by steps and meandering paths. Coupled with its arrangement is a number of formal and in formal pools connected by water courses and channels to form the principal feature of the garden as a whole full of mystery and excitement with open expanses of lawn. The garden has been skilfully planted with specimen trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials to provide year round interest. The original rock garden features extensive use of natural Edge Hill stone which has been carefully laid to suggest a natural out crop (this particular plot was once part of the remains of the original manor house, this plot being the American rock garden). Beyond the gardens separated by deer fencing is a sizable area of native woodland being a haven for flora and fauna adjoining farmland to the south west. The plot extends to almost two acres in all and is remarkably private being well screened from neighbouring properties giving a real sense of privacy in a mature historic setting. On a clear day it is possible to see the outline of Malvern's from the upper terrace looking west.
