Once described as the best modern house in the world - the concrete, timber and copper structure looks as modern today as it did over 50 years ago.<br />
<br />
A modernist property designed by the man behind the world famous Sydney Opera House has hit the market for £3.5m. <br />
<br />
Ahm House in Harpenden, Herts, is the breathtaking creation of renowned architect, Jorn Utzon, who in the early 1960s was simultaneously working on Australia's most famous landmark. <br />
<br />
In 1962 Utzon constructed the home for fellow Dane, Povl Ahm, with whom he became friends while working on the Opera House together. <br />
<br />
Government body Historic England recognised the building as an architectural wonder in 1998 by granting it Grade II listed status.
