We featured one of the architect’s houses in Surrey some time back, but she is best known for a group of modernist houses on Hampden Hill, including this 1960s Mary Christian Hamp-designed five-bedroom property in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.

Sat in a plot of half an acre and one of a number of modernist-inspired properties built around 1963, the house (like the others) has recently been awarded Conservation Area status. Which has to be a good thing.

When awarded the status, it was described as ‘a rare example of… a housing development of innovative, contemporary and distinctive design which remains largely as the architect intended’, noted for its ‘quality of construction’ and ‘tranquil, rural setting’.

This is one of the ‘Type B’ properties, with large, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gardens and double-height ceilings in some rooms. There are also five bedrooms, two reception rooms, a kitchen and dining room. Outside, along with those gardens, there is a double garage and off street parking at the front of the house.
