We saw a similar house to this sell back in 2011. This 1950s three-bedroom Erno Goldfinger-designed property in Broadstairs, Kent is another of the four designed by the famed architect in the early part of that decade.

The houses were designed by Goldfinger for teachers at the nearby Wellesley House preparatory school and on the face of it, look pretty typical of a modern house. That probably wasn’t the case 60 years back, especially with the ribbed flat roof, distinctive windows,. hidden pipework and fairly open plan layout. It also uses local materials (such as flint) in the construction too.

Inside is a mix of the old and the new, perhaps with the new winning out. This has certainly been renovated, with the addition of an extension too for what’s described as a ‘semi-independent annex’. But as you can see from the images, plenty of originality is still on show.
