You might recall we featured one of these in need of some updating a while back. This 1930s Berthold Lubetkin-designed grade II-listed modernist house in Haywards Heath, West Sussex is probably the other side of the coin.

As we mentioned last time out, Lubetkin was asked to design a house for the people in 1935, resulting in a small selection of eight houses – one pair of Type A (semi-detached builds), Type B (detached) and the larger Type C, which is what we think this one is.

The exterior is general as it was and the trademark fireplace and curved staircase around it still survive. But beyond that, this is a heavily modernised house, as you might expect. Smooth white walls, a modern kitchen, updated bathroom, spotlights in the ceiling, a part decked garden – you get the idea. This is very much contemporary living inside.

But there is a good amount of space to play with, more than you might imagine. Head in and you’ll find an entrance hall, the living room with that feature curved wall (and working) fireplace, a dining room leading off it and a kitchen leading off that. The spirals staircase leads to two double rooms and two single bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC.
