We’re guessing the 1960s and I think you can see why from the above image, but it might just have sneaked into the early ’70s. Either way, this is a very individual build that’s been recently renovated to offer a modern house with a good deal of retro charm. Although you do wonder what it was like before the makeover.

  • This house was designed by Mary Christian Hamp and built in 1967. Despite appearances it has actually had quite a lot of alteration. Originally it sat on a brick plinth containing garage, entrance hall and a guest bedroom. Two further bedrooms and living rooms were on the first floor. By building a separate garage and relocating all the bedrooms to the ground floor they’ve managed to create a huge living area upstairs. Windows have also been reduced in size. However it’s a better fate than many of its contemporaries have suffered.

    Mary Christian Hamp was the daughter of well-known thirties architect Stanley Hamp. She’s best known for an estate of modernist houses at Hampden Hill, off Holtspur Top Lane in Beaconsfield – well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
