Known as Gradna House, it is said to have been built for the Wills Tobacco family in the 1930s as a holiday getaway in Plaidy, near Looe, Cornwall, passing into the ownership of Lord Bath in the 1940s. It continued as a residential property for some decades after, but stood empty for 20 years until a local businessman picked it up around 1990.
That’s when the hard work began. We don’t know just how much work was needed, but the fact that architect Stan Bolt oversaw a decade-long restoration suggests it was extensive. It also indicates just how much effort and money went into what you see how.
All in all a seriously stylish house that’s packed with high-end features and fittings, but still offering an overall look and feel of the original era. If it appeals, you will need to find something in the region of £3,000,000 — via WowHaus
