There are a good number of modern homes of the period in this area (we have featured a couple in the past), but this 1930s H C Hughes-designed modernist property in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire is definitely up there with the best of them.
Dating back to 1934 and originally called Brandon House, it was designed by Cambridge architect H C Hughes and was initially lived in by Australian scientist Dr Oliphant. It’s located on Conduit Head Road, an area known for houses of this type. So you’ll be with likeminded people if you move into this place. The house itself looks very well maintained. it isn’t a museum, nor is it an ultra-modern living space. It look like the subsequent owners have maintained the look and feel of this place, but kept the fixtures, fittings and decor up to a fairly modern standard. Which is perhaps what you would expect of a 1930s property in 2014.
The house sits in 1.42 acres of land, off a no-through road to the west of the city and offers internal accommodation of a reception hall, cloakroom, drawing room, music room, dining room, kitchen / breakfast room, study – family room and guest bedroom plus en-suite on the ground floor. Head upstairs and you will find the master bedroom with en-suite, two further double bedrooms and a family shower room. Outside is all of that land plus parking for several cars, and a single garage.
The guide price is £1,750,000.
