In a picturesque and wooded location you’ll find this a house very much of its era and incredibly understated in style. That’s a good thing by the way.

So many details worth mentioning within that simple framework too, including the large reception area, the metal staircase, that sloped ceiling, the exposed brick, the sunken living room, the fireplace, the seemingly untouched kitchen area…we could go on, but really, just check out the agent’s images to appreciate this place.

The house as it stands looks like it has jumped off the pages off a 1960s design magazine, but I suspect that’s intentional rather than by accident. A read through the agent’s detailing talk of work on the electricity and heating for example, which hints at a larger restoration job. One that has carefully maintained the original features of the mid-20th century, but ensured this is a perfectly liveable property in the 21st century too.

The agent also talks of a ‘simple and still current floor plan’, which we entirely agree with. This is a 1960s house, but the open layout is perfect for the modern era.

As for the space within, you are looking at four bedrooms and a single bathroom, a very cool gallery area plus the relatively open reception space on the ground floor, served also by the oversized windows. So plenty of light within. It looks like the house stands on quite a healthy plot too, listed as covering around 5,315 sq. metres.
