We seem to be on a run at the moment with interesting builds from the 1960s. That’s certainly the category for this 1960s architect-designed Crosstrees modernist property in Hythe, Kent.
It is an individually designed hillside property, designed both by and for the unnamed architect and his family in the sixties. The agent talks about its ‘retro’ appeal, although that’s really down to the originality of this place, which doesn’t look to have changed over the decades.
That means the original design is intact, with the wood panelling, the open space and the feature balcony adding to the appeal for fans of the decade. But we think it’s pretty certain that work will now be required, not least to the kitchen and bathroom.
But a good canvas to work with, that’s for sure. As it stands, the house has an open-plan living area on the first floor along with a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Head down to the lower floor and you’ll find two further bedrooms, a garden room and utility room. The house occupies a good-size plot with a secluded rear garden with mature shrubs and trees. There’s also plenty of parking and a garage.
If that appeals, offers in the region of £450,000 are invited.
