The house is said to date from 1954 and presumably, was built for an artist. The layout of the place tells you that. It’s also a building that was probably more alien to the environment than it is now – and it’s still quite a stark construction, all about straight lines and concrete.

According to the agent, this modernist gem consists of four separate areas, all either fairly original to the 1950s design or in need of some renovation. If you want authenticity, this could be for you.
