Designed by architects Peter Phippen, Peter Randall and David Parkes and built in the mid-1960s, this house is one of the largest of the twenty-eight on the scheme, extensively renovated, although some of the modern fittings might not appeal to fans of the ‘period’ style. But certainly a house you can just walk into and live in, wth plenty of originality (wood panels, flooring, windows etc) still here.
