Last week we featured a house in Neston designed by J Roy Parker. Following on from that discovery, we did some hunting round and found another interesting design by the same architect nearby – this 1960s J Roy Parker-designed four-bedroom house in Parkgate, Cheshire.

Parker designed this in 1965, part of a small development of similar modernist-inspired properties in a cul-de-sac on Parkgate, all of which where featured in the Cheshire volume of Nikolaus Pevsner and Edward Hubbard’s The Buildings of England book and have been taken note of by English Heritage. A ‘sought after residential location’ can’t do it any harm either.

The current owners seem to be working a retro-modern vibe inside, maintaining the original features (like the copper roof and floor-to-ceiling windows) as well as the layout, adding in some modern-day retro and of course, modern home comforts.

In terms of that layout, the door leads to a hall with exposed brick face wall and wood panelling. That in turn leads to a cloakroom with WC and wood-panelled walls, a lounge with French doors to rear and more of that wood wall panelling, a dining room and modern kitchen.

Head upstairs via the open-plan staircase (which ultimately leads to sme loft space) and you’ll find four bedrooms (two with built-in wardrobes), a bathroom and separate WC.

Outside, there’s a block paved driveway, lawn, mature trees and borders, a garage that’s current used for storage plus two timber garden sheds.

All of that is for sale at offers over £350,000.
