The architect is perhaps best known for his Underhill earth house, which is absolutely nothing like this place. But this 1967 build definitely has potential, not least because it is pretty much untouched in almost 50 years.

So interesting period details like the open tread stairs, the mezzanine level above the reception room and the picture windows, but some work perhaps needed to sharpen things up overall.

Plenty of space though, listed as a ‘grand’ reception / dining hall, large sitting room with glazing to three sides and that mezzanine above, breakfast kitchen, three or four bedrooms (or a further reception room), bathroom and an additional separate WC.

The house is also designed to take advantage of the garden and woodland around the place, with gardens to the front, side and rear. There’s also an extensive driveway and a double garage too.

As we said, back up for sale with a lower price, with offers of around £299,995 being sought.
