Thanks to Dan Nosworthy for flagging up an absolute gem on the Welsh coast, this 1970s four-bedroom modernist property in Colwyn Bay, Clwyd, North Wales.
Its appeal really is down to its authenticity, with the house barely changed since it was ‘constructed to a most individual specification by a local builder of repute’, presumably some time in the 1970s, although that’s purely guesswork.
If its era is in doubt, just check out the fixtures and fittings of this single-storey property, which will surely be something to negotiate over if you want to move in. Again, hardly changed since the original build and perfect for this place. Just like the wood panelling and exposed brick walls.
As for the house itself, well enter through the hardwood framed front door and into the hallway and you’ll find a cloakroom, a dining room with feature brick wall, timber panelled ceiling and double glazed patio doors to rear patio courtyard, along with a period kitchen and fitted appliances (which look much more recent) and a utility with access to the garage.
Also here is a lounge with brick open cool fireplace and quarry tiled hearth, two full length picture windows overlooking the rear patio and gardens, a double glazed corner window and timber panelled ceiling, along with a living room with patio doors to the courtyard, fitted units and solid timber sliding doors to separate the main lounge and living room.
Of course, there are bedrooms too, with the double-aspect master bedroom complete with patio doors to the courtyard and its own en-suite. There are three further bedrooms plus a bathroom with pine sauna. Yes, you read that right.
The garage is double-sized and integrated into the house, while the gardens are front and rear, including a brick greenhouse, garden shed, bin store and the previously-mentioned brick courtyard patio area at the rear of the bungalow.
All of that for £365,000.
