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.

    This house is near where I live….Ive always wondered what it looked like inside and its just as I imagined.

    Just a note though…..Its in Bramhall (which many people class as Cheshire but its actually Greater Manchester) Not Chester as stated aboove

    Duly noted. Cheers!

    Just to make it clear, the one featured here isn’t Best’s house, but one done at same time near Bury. George Best’s Bramhall home has been changed massively with what I’ve seen. His Sandbanks home still has 70s cool though!
