We don’t intentionally feature period houses, it just happens that most of the interesting designs we find are of an era. Modern houses are just a bit dull. Anyway, to hammer the point home, here’s a late 1960s property that’s just come on the market – The Terrace four-bedroomed detached house in Little Shelford, Cambridge.

It’s a late 1960s take on modernism, the house being architect-designed (name unknown) for the current owners back in the day and now on the market for the first time. It also boasts a location in a sought-after conservation area, surrounded by greenbelt paddocks and only about five miles from Cambridge itself. Perfect, in other words.

A brick construction under a mono-pitched roof, it was designed to offer ‘bright, spacious and flexible accommodation’, with a potential annexe area , should you have someone who wants their own space. Inside, it’s very much ‘of an era’ (which is fine by us) – if you love your wood panelling, you’ll love it.
