With its parapet roof, cedar cladding and unashamed modernity, Gail and Jon Race’s home is the last thing you expect to see in a village of Victorian villas and stone-built cottages.

Thanks to their vision and consideration for their surroundings, however, their home is viewed by many locals as an asset to the area. “When we’re sitting on the deck in the summer we often hear bits of conversation float up from the lane, with people saying how much they like it,” says Gail.

They had originally relocated to the town of Arundel from London, after having their first son. “We lived in a beautiful Georgian house there but it had no garden and our second son came along so we started looking for somewhere more rural,” says Gail. The house was in the right location -- a quiet village not far from the local train station but, remembers Gail: “It was hideous. It was designed in the 1960s and completed in 1971 on part of a very large garden of the adjacent house, it was a real time warp and most of those who had viewed it apparently wanted to tear it down.”
