We are pretty sure this is a house we featured back in 2011. On the face of it, not a lot has changed, but step into this 1970s B. J. Duffy-designed midcentury modern property in Welwyn, Hertfordshire and you’ll notice quite an improvement.

The one we saw in 2011 (and designed back in 1974) had plenty of original features, but just lacked that bit of character and personality. Not so now. It has been ‘comprehensively refurbished’ over the past year by the current owners, making the most of the original detailing, whilst marrying it up with some mid-20th century design touches. The end result is stunning.

That staircase, the walls and of course, the beams are all big selling points here. But so is the space on offer, not least the first floor reception area, which runs the full width of the house and benefits from floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gardens, along with a large terrace to the side.

As we said, a stunning renovation job. Despite that, the price hasn’t jumped up too much since we last featured it, with this place up for sale at £720,000.
