Not all interesting and individual architect designs have to break the bank. The Crathinard 1970s three-bedroom modernist house in Blairgowrie, Perth and Kinross, Scotland is, dare I say it, almost affordable.

According to the agent, Crathinard was built in 1974 to a design produced by a ‘cutting edge Glaswegian architect’. We don’t have a name sadly, but we’re sure a few enquiries could bring that to light.

It’s an interesting design too, with the accommodation spread out over a single floor, with  vaulted timber ceilings and ‘glass screens’ on the south elevation. Throw in a feature raised fireplace and you have a house that’s open and spacious, but with the fire and timber, can also be quite cosy too.

The layout isn’t set in stone, but there are three bedrooms (one en-suite) and two ‘public rooms’ (possibly the sitting room and dining room), along with a kitchen with original fittings and tiles and a shower room with WC. There’s also storage areas, a connected double garage and plenty of garden space. The agent claims some areas need updating, but that ‘Crathinard has aged well’, especially the open plan layout and integration with the private garden space.

More detail on the listing, with a price of £290,000 if you are interested.
