We featured this house back in May 2011, one of the first we wrote about, as we absolutely loved this Frazer Crane-designed four-bedroomed modernist house in Whitefield, Greater Manchester. It disappeared off the agent’s listing not long after. But today, it seems to have reappeared on another agent’s books – and for a heavily-reduced price.
Frazer Crane designed this house not long after completing George Best’s iconic bachelor pad in Bramhall, Cheshire around the start of the 1970s. It’s not a million miles away in terms of ‘feel’, but is more of a family home, having had some modernisation, but not excessive work. Yes, the kitchen and fittings all look new, but the shape and character are largely unaffected – full height glazing and exposed brick walls for example.
Built in a sought-after residential area, the house offers both space and rooms that cover just about every base. That includes a living room, dining room, sitting, room, extensive kitchen, four bedrooms, a family bathroom, basement, sauna room, bar and wine cellar, boiler room, games room and an integral garage. Lots of surrounding gardens too.
Now originally, when we featured it, the house was up for £995,000. Now it is up with a new agent, complete with just one blurred photo (which looks like the image below) for £895,000. Ok, that’s still not cheap, but it does make it a little more affordable. See the agent’s page for all the details – hopefully some fresh images will appear online too.
