The showpiece of the house is a sensational reception room on the top floor, which has magnificent views over Waterlow Park and the cemetery. The interior is in original condition throughout, including the original kitchen, built-in storage, quarry tiles and electric under-floor heating. The property has secluded gardens on 3 sides, with a glasshouse in the form of a geodesic dome. There are also the remains of an outbuilding, believed to be the former masonry for the cemetery. Constructed around a steel frame, the house has huge double-glazed picture windows that provide the interior with outstanding levels of natural light (the windows are now in need of replacement). It is clad in Cor-Ten, a steel alloy that weathers naturally to a beautiful dark rust colour. For more information about the architecture of the house, see the History section. It was listed in 2009, with English Heritage commenting, This is a highly influential and unusual house in its structure, materials, plan and aesthetic. It is still a model for minimal housing, as influential today as it was when it was built.
