The exterior doesn’t really sell this place, but the interior of this 1960s three-bedroom modernist property in St Albans, Hertfordshire really makes up for it.
The interior has been preserved and updated (if that makes sense), with the layout and key architectural features in place, working alongside some modern detailing in keeping with the original theme. It works.
The key area here is the stunning double height central reception room and entrance hall. That’s what you call a ‘wow’ factor. The ‘look’ is carried on throughout the house, with what look like original light fittings and some original fitted units (or units in keeping, at the very least), glazed internal doors and angled ceilings (with wood panels aplenty). But this isn’t a museum – a modern kitchen and bathrooms make this the kind of place you could just walk into on day one and live your life.
Space-wise, there are three ‘generous’ reception areas, a large kitchen and breakfast room, three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and outside, gardens, parking to the driveway at the front and a large double garage, with ‘courtesy door’, which could be converted to additional reception space (with planning permission).
Not cheap though. This place is on the market for £1,050,000.
