It’s described as both ‘unique’ and ‘deceptively spacious’ by the agent. Just a shame this five-bedroom 1960s modernist house in Loughton, Essex doesn’t come with details of its heritage.

All we know is that it was built circa 1965 and still maintains the look of the original build structurally. Yes, there looks to have been some updating to the interior and fittings over the years, but that’s just decor in the main. If you wanted something more in keeping with the exterior inside, that shouldn’t be hard to do.

As for the house itself, that’s laid out over three floors, with plenty of original feature to enjoy, including exposed brickwork, what seems like the original windows and some original timber work too.

The lower ground floor lends itself to use as a self-contained annexe, should you want one. There’s also a large terrace that  is accessed from the first floor lounge, which is said to have ‘far reaching views towards London’. The rear gardens of 60′ (approximately) enjoy a South Westerly aspect and a double car port provides two parking spaces.

If that appeals, the price is at £999,950. Obviously a decent postcode too,  judging by that price.

Update: Thanks to both Chris and Hugh for their comments regarding the architect and year.

  • Hugh

    This one was designed by Geoffrey F Bateman, for himself, circa 1967.

  • This is Sussex House by architect Geoffrey Bateman. Unless I’m mistaken it was built earlier than 1965 because Architect and Building News did a feature on it in their Dec 1959 issue.
