Some very British modernism on the market, courtesy of this Norman W. T. Brooks-designed four-bedroom property in Tiptree, Essex.
It dates back to 1972, with a design pretty much faithful to the one conjured up by the local architect four decades ago. It looks pretty stark and bold now, it probably turned even more heads in the village back then.
Still very much a good prospect as a family home though, with the added attraction of overlooking the village green and a rather nice duck pond. See the images on the listing to see how it sits in regard to both. Lots of great period features too – particular love the external overhang, wood ceilings, exposed brick walls, original tiles and a general feeling of openness throughout.
As for the accommodation, that includes four bedrooms on the first floor (one with an en-suite bathroom) and an open plan ground floor comprising a living room, dining room, study and kitchen. All are reached via a double height reception hall. There is also a short drive at the front of the house for numerous cars, plus a garage / store room, with a large lawned garden at the rear.
If you fancy making this your nest home, it is on the market for £495,000.
