One of our favourite modern houses is actually still on the market, the stunning Farnley Hey house in Farnley Tyas, near Huddersfield. Just down the road from that place is a midcentury design that’s just gone on the market – this 1960s four bedroom hillside house for sale in Almondbury, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
The agent doesn’t give much away as to its heritage. We just know it was designed in the 1960s and has 180-degree views across Farnley Valley towards Castle Hill and is located in ‘ much sought after’ residential location. So the images will have to tell the story.
What they do tell us is that the exterior is faithful to the original architect’s design, but the inside is very much a modern family home, renovated to a very high standard. Underfloor heating and solid oak flooring and doors should tell you that.
In terms of accommodation, it has four bedrooms and three reception rooms, along with an open plan living kitchen which opens out onto a large glazed balcony. Externally, the lower ground floor balcony leads to a large tiered garden with mature shrubs and lawned areas. To the rear there is a drive with parking for a number of cars and a double car port.
If you want it, offers of around £500,000 are invited.
