A stunning cliff-top home with dramatic sea views has gone on the market – but you’ll need a cool £2m to make it yours.
The unique ‘grand design’ property is so incredible the person who designed it decided to live there himself.
The three storey six-bedroom home in Swanage, Dorset, was created in the 1960s by architect John Morgan and he quickly fell in love with the place.
But following his recent death, it is now to be sold.
At the time the flat-roofed building with floor to ceiling windows was considered a revolutionary design.
The property’s stunning location on the cliffs provides sensational sea views of Poole Bay and across to The Needles on the Isle of Wight.
Mr Morgan died earlier this year and the house has gone on the market for the first time.
The estate agents selling it acknowledge that the property does require ‘updating’ but say that it has huge potential.
Simon Wembridge, of estate agents Albury and Hall, said: “It is a real classic sixties built property designed by an architect who has passed away.
“It is split-level and was a revolutionary design at the time and the use of large windows enhances the views and extends amazing natural light to most rooms.
“The sitting room definitely has the ‘wow factor’, the elevated views are breath-taking.
“These views have to be seen, words cannot portray the beauty of the constantly changing sea and sky.
“The late architect’s family are now selling it. It does need a lot of work doing to it but it has great potential.”
The main accommodation is on the ground floor that has a large entrance hall, kitchen, sitting room, dining room, office, snug and four bedrooms.
The dining room is in a rotunda-shaped room that opens out to a large terrace overlooking the gardens and the sea.
On the lower ground floor there are two more bedrooms, a second sitting room and a reading room.
In the basement there is a large family room and bathroom that could be turned into an Airbnb annexe.
It would be incredible for a holiday home – and would make a mint on AirBnB!
The property also comes with a separate self-contained lodge house which has a sitting/dining room, a kitchen, a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a study.
Outside, the walled landscaped gardens lead down to the cliff edge.
Mr Morgan built the house after buying an old garage and land on the bend of Belle Vue Road in Swanage in the early 1960s.
